Learning portfolios are increasingly being used in university teacher-education programs as assessment instrument. With formative assessment in mind, this study provides a method to assess the modifications made by each pre-service teacher in his/her project included in his/her learning portfolio. The project consisted of designing a lesson plan for teaching mathematical knowledge taking into account "Content", "Activities", "Methodology" and "Reflection". The outcomes showed significant differences in the revisions carried out in all categories except "Activities". Although the use of portfolio promoted the successful development of each pre-service teacher's initial ideas, the training received during the teacher-education program had limited influence.
