Teachers need to assess learner portfolios in the field of education. However, they need support in the process of designing and practicing what kind of portfolios are to be assessed. To solve the problem, a formal method of describing the relations between the lesson forms and portfolios that need to be collected and the relations between practices and these collected portfolios was developed. These relations are indispensable in portfolio assessment. A support system for these based on the formal method was also developed. As the formal method of description can precisely and consistently describe these relations, the system makes it possible to support the assessment of portfolios in the design and practice phases. (Contains 7 figures and 2 tables.)
