Collins, Angelo; Dana, Thomas M.
Middle School Journal, v25 n2 p14-19 Nov 1993
Describes use of portfolios with middle school students, highlighting assessment purpose, structure, evidence, implementation, grading, validity, and cost considerations. Portfolios have the potential to revise schools' roles in preparing students for the future. Convincing parents and the public that portfolio completion is a demanding task will only happen when portfolios become a regular part of classroom practice. (MLH)
