van der Aalsvoort, G. M.; Verheggen, Marjolein
Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, v3 n1 p1-11 Mar 2003
This study compared use of portfolios as part of reading and spelling instruction in two Netherlands schools. Subjects were 92 6- to 7-year-olds including 14 poor readers. Quantitative evaluation indicated use of portfolios did not improve reading and spelling or self-esteem. Qualitative findings indicated that reading performance and self-esteem decreased for poor readers in both conditions. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
