Make portfolios work without all the work!
Learn how to use portfolios to increase your level of performance in the classroom and improve student assessment. This updated, easy-to-read, step-by-step guide to using portfolios incorporates current teaching practices and cutting-edge technology. Here is an alternative method of evaluating student work that is painless and effective!
Teachers want to spend more time teaching and less time assessing. Traditional assessment practices are time-consuming and, too often, don't reflect the total progress of a student. Standardized testing tells us how well a student tests rather than how much a student has learned.
Portfolio assessment offers a more complete picture of your students' progress and frees you to be more creative with your students. It offers:
- Clear objectives to guide you through each chapter
- Rationale for an alternative to traditional assessment practices
- Portfolio guidelines by grade and subject
- Up-to-the-minute technology for enhancing portfolio implementation
This new jam-packed version of Portfolios Across the Curriculum and Beyond should be the definitive portfolio book on the market! A valuable resource for teachers, administrators, and teacher educators.
