Cole, Donna J.; Ryan, Charles W.; Kick, Fran; Mathies, Bonnie K.
This updated guide to using portfolios in educational assessment incorporates current teaching practices and new technology. The portfolio is defined as a systematic and organized collection of evidence used by the teacher and the student to monitor the growth of the student's knowledge, skills, and attitudes. The guide offers: (1) clear objectives; (2) a rationale for each alternative to traditional assessment practices; (3) portfolio guidelines by grade and subject; and (4) current technology for enhancing portfolio implementation. Five resource chapters contain discussions of issues in portfolio development, the portfolio conference procedure and report, and an electronic portfolio template and an annotated bibliography. (Contains 36 references.) (SLD)
