The Literacy Acquisition Portfolio.
Southwest Educational Development Lab., Austin, TX.
This portfolio contains a literacy profile form for teachers to record students' progress, a reading folder to collect information on what students have read, a place to collect writing samples, and a listening/speaking/viewing folder. The literacy profile in the portfolio contains a chart to record baseline data, mid-year, and summative data for a variety of cognitive elements (including reading comprehension, decoding, and language comprehension). It also contains forms to record teachers' comments and observations for each of the cognitive elements. The front cover of the reading folder allows for the recording of the title/author, genre, comments, and text level for up to 24 items. The front of the Writing Samples folder lists assessment indicators for language comprehension, linguistic knowledge, phonology, semantics, syntax, writing composition, encoding, correct spelling, phonetic encoding, letter formation, segments for spelling, background knowledge, and writing conventions. The front of the Listening/speaking/viewing folder lists assessment indicators for linguistic knowledge, phonology, semantics, syntax, background knowledge, and language comprehension. It also briefly describes supplementary language skills that do not relate directly and clearly with any single cognitive element outlined in the framework. (RS)
