Portfolio Assessment: A Catalyst for Staff and Curricular Reform.
Shay, Suellen
Assessing Writing, v4 n1 p29-51 1997
Explores how a portfolio assessment project in the University of Cape Town's Chemistry Department developed (within staff) new understandings of the role of writing as a vehicle for learning, which resulted in a reexamination of the relationship of the written assignments to the existing curriculum. Discusses challenges of designing assessment frameworks diagnostically powerful enough to assist in curriculum reconstruction. (RS)
