Subject: Re: Portfolio Assessment in Geometry

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. -Gail, for the Teacher2Teacher service
