Will Mandating Portfolios Undermine Their Value?
Case, Susan H.
Educational Leadership, v52 n2 p46-47 Oct 1994
Mandating portfolios on a systemwide or statewide basis may destroy one of their greatest assets: allowing students to reflect on their learning and feel a sense of hope and control. Once standards are defined by an outside authority, teacher-student collaboration is minimized and the importance of students' own goals and learning assessment diminishes. (MLH)
