Student Portfolios for Achievement, Growth, and Assessment
  • Dina Capobianco says:
    Instead of the traditional means, a portfolio can serve as a type of assessment for students to measure progress. While it may be a wonderful tool, teachers are sometimes hesitant to use this method because it is so subjective. So it must be clear what you are measuring from the portfolio and exactly what you expect students to achieve.
