Has Portfolio Assessment Become Common Practice in EFL Classrooms? Empirical Studies from China
Zhang, Shumei
English Language Teaching, v2 n2 p98-118 Jun 2009
This paper describes the results of an investigation into the use of portfolio assessment (PA) in Chinese context, beginning with a survey of the rationale for the use of portfolios with students. Then the empirical study is presented and the teachers' and the students' as well as the English teaching advisors' voices are revealed through excerpts collected from the questionnaire and the interviews. The findings show that portfolio assessment is in its infancy. The factors that might have hindered its progress are discussed.
