Career Portfolio for Learning Support Students. Level II.
Youshock, Joseph; And Others
This second level of a portfolio for learners with special needs is intended for grades 9-10. A discussion of its conceptual design describes the four educational content areas from which it was developed (career development assessment, curriculum-based vocational assessment, community-referenced assessment, and work habits assessment) and four developmental growth strands woven into the content areas (cognition, thinking, affective, and psychomotor). A parent information sheet is provided. The portfolio is divided into the four educational areas. A Transition Portfolio form summarizes the content areas and establishes goals similar to the individualized education program (IEP) form used by Pennsylvania for the learner with special needs. Each educational portfolio content area identifies educational and growth ideas to be assessed and developed. The portfolio consists of the following: (1) forms for four marking periods on which to identify level of attainment of goals, to plan for achievement of goals, to describe progress on goals, to list best works, and to make teacher comments and suggestions; (2) vocational curriculum-based assessment inventories for construction, sales and service, and manufacturing, repair, and restoration; (3) inventories for computer, study, and problem-solving skills; (4) community-referenced competency scales; (5) performance work habit rating form; (6) learner career data sheet; and (7) career experiences rating form.
