Portfolio Expectations: Possibilities and Limits.
Callahan, Susan
Assessing Writing, v2 n2 p117-51 1995
Reviews history of writing portfolios, emphasizing differences between portfolios designed for instructional purposes and those intended to serve as tests. Suggests that because even carefully designed portfolio systems do not function as intended, portfolio users should expect evaluation and adjustment to be part of the portfolio process. Examines the trend toward using portfolios as state-mandated accountability measures. (PA)
