Lessons Learned About Student Portfolios.
Hebert, Elizabeth A.
Phi Delta Kappan, v79 n8 p583-85 Apr 1998
Faculty at an Illinois school felt that going beyond test scores to collect more substantive evidence of their curriculum and teaching seemed innovative, but underestimated how important the selection and assembly process was to the children. Over time, faculty learned to "hang loose" about portfolio contents, specify containers, make item selection an evolving child-teacher partnership, create archives of past portfolios, and define an audience.
