Can a Metamorphosis Be Quantified?: Reflecting on Portfolio Assessment
Herberg, Erin
Composition Studies, v33 n2 p69-87 Fall 2005
This article outlines the experiences of a first-year writing program's adoption of large-scale portfolio assessment as part of its move from student-focused assessment to programmatic assessment. This research is an attempt to provide evidence to support the claims benefits associated with portfolio assessment and to chronicle the changes that resulted in one writing program's shift to portfolio assessment. It recounts the development, implementation, and evolution of a portfolio assessment program and reflects on its successes and the challenges the program continues to face.
