A collection of a student's work that can be used to show the student's achievement. Sometimes portfolios are organized to show the progress a student has made over time and include rough drafts as well as finished assignments. Other times, they are a collection of the student's best work.
Collection of student work used as a reference or for assessment over a period of time. Portfolios may be electronically stored in word processing or other forms of software programs or paper-based.
Cloth covered protective folder for flat storage.
Portfolios are a collection of student work. They allow teachers to develop and use stimulating, complex activities that go beyond "covering the book."
container of collected evidence with a purpose; contains documentation of a range of student skill and knowledge with appropriate self-evaluation.
Collections of students' work over a period of time. Examples might be a videotape of participation in an art criticism experience; a video or audio tape of a dance, music or theater performance; a painting; sketches that record the preliminary thinking process for an environmental art work; a journal that records the rehearsal process for a performance or of ideas and experiences that provide insight about the process of writing a play, choreographing a dance, or composing a piece of music; essays and tests; teacher notations from a log book and classroom interaction checklist results. A portfolio should be more than just a collection of work; it should demonstrate the student's learning process and the student's conscious involvement in that process.
Portfolios are focussed and methodical collections of selected student or teacher work samples, products, reflective journals, performances, achievements and assessments gathered over time. They may reflect agreed criteria for selection of representative samples and may include input from teachers, parents, peers and members of the wider community. Portfolios may be used for evaluation purposes or for sharing as a record of student achievement.
A portfolio is a representative collection of an individual student's work. A student portfolio is generally composed of best work to date and a few "works in progress" that demonstrate the process. Students show their knowledge, skills and abilities in a variety of different ways that are not dependent upon traditional media such as exams and essays.
Collections of student work, such as research, writing, and art. A number of progressive schools judge a student's performance by the work he or she has performed and assembled over the school year. In some elementary schools, that work is placed in portfolios, the large, ribbon-tied cardboard folders used by many artists.
A collection of student work that is structured to meet an expectation set forth by the teacher, often used as a long-term progress assessment.
Collections of work selected to serve various purposes, including assessment of developing understanding (processfolios), demonstrations of best products, or demonstration of the range of effort expended. Decisions about what to include in portfolios, who makes the choices, how the choices are made, and what is done with the portfolio of work all determine what the portfolio is and the value it has to different audiences.
