Ogan-Bekiroglu, Feral; Gunay, Abdulkadir
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Conference of Asian Science Education (CASE) (Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Feb 20-23, 2008)
Despite the approbations for the use of portfolio assessment, there are limited number of studies that have looked at the portfolio assessment from the students' point of view. The purpose of this study was to find out students' perceptions about portfolio assessment. A multi-case study design was utilized for the research in order to focus on students' perceptions within several examples. Participants of the study were nine nine-grade high school students. Portfolio assessment was implemented for eight-week duration in a physics course. Data were collected by written documents and interviews. The participants' perceptions were explored based on the codes such as benefits, enjoyable parts, and problems of the portfolio assessment. Although the students complained about some problems, their perceptions on portfolio assessment were generally positive. (Contains 1 table.)
