Questions about Portfolio Processes. Instructional Resource No. 28.
Kieffer, Ronald D.; And Others
Portfolio process differs according to learners' purposes, audience, ownership, and the teacher's philosophical views of learning and evaluation. In a yearlong investigation of portfolio process, the teacher-researchers developed their own portfolios along with their students. This instructional resource illustrates a multi-purposed, multiple process view of portfolio assessment and suggests decision making that accompanies eight elements of portfolio process--questions, purpose, audience, expectations, collection, selection, organization, and reflection. Teachers are encouraged to develop their own portfolios along with their students as a way to model the process, reflect upon their teaching practices, and support students' ongoing learning. Contains 18 references and additional resources. (Author/RS)
