Hi Lisa;

I have been working on refining my attempts at portfolio assessment for the
past two years. I am still somewhat unsatisfied with it, but I have been
getting better.

One of the things I realized early on is that most resources that claim
they are portfolio assessment, are really only methods of collecting and
organizing material.

I have had to work hard to develop good, thought provoking questions for
students to ponder regarding their work, and it has taken me some serious
time to develop reasonably good rubrics.

I have frequently had the students assist in developing the rubrics prior
to the activities.

My best use of the portfolio this year was during conferences. I had
student led conferences for the first time. (The only way to go!!) They
were very successful. Both parents and students loved them. They were
positive, and gave me many insights into the students that I had not had
occassion to develop in any other way.

Do you have any great suggestions that could help in the development of
rubrics or any great insights into quality assessment from portfolios? I
am still trying to improve:-)
