The Validity of Portfolios in Predicting Performances in a Gifted Program.
Johnsen, Susan K.; Ryser, Gail R.
Journal for the Education of the Gifted, v20 n3 p253-67 Spr 1997
This study examined the degree to which samples collected in product portfolios from 216 kindergarten through second-grade students were able to predict their successful performance in a gifted program four years later. Students whose product portfolios were in the top quarter performed significantly better on later math and reading achievement subtests, but their classroom performance was not significantly better.
