Yancey, Kathleen Blake – Theory Into Practice, 2015
How does one grade an electronic portfolio? This question is one I have thought about, have enacted, and have written about, primarily in reference to ePortfolios used in writing classrooms (Yancey, McElroy, & Powers, 2013).

Hesse, Doug; Sommers, Nancy; Yancey, Kathleen Blake – College English, 2012

At the same time, teenagers…

Yancey, Kathleen Blake – College Composition and Communication, 1999
Offers an account of three "waves" of writing assessment: objective tests, holistic scoring, and portfolios.

Yancey, Kathleen Blake – College Composition and Communication, 2004
What we ask students to do is who we ask them to be.
