I will leave this for others to respond to, also, but I am curious. You are
not hoping to implement portfolios during the currect school year, are
you? Amassing the student samples takes time, not only to collect the work,
but also time for students to complete the work.

Part of the reason for compiling a portfolio is to show progress, and to help
students take responsibility for setting learning goals, and self-assessing,
but another reason for reviewing students' work samples is to assess your
instruction. Looking at what they think they understand, and comparing it to
what you think you taught, can be a very surprising activity.
