Portfolios within an Elementary Science Methods Course: The Evolution of Personal Efforts at Implementation.
Settlage, John, Jr.
Journal of Science Teacher Education, v7 n1 p59-73 Mar 1996
Describes efforts to implement portfolio assessment within an elementary-science methods course. The methods course was designed to model pedagogical approaches students were expected to employ once they began teaching science in elementary schools. Relying upon examinations to evaluate students was inconsistent with the course philosophy and calls for alternative assessment within science-education reform. Appendices include the scoring rubrics. (PVD)
