Abstract

The current move toward authentic assessment encourages teachers to use qualitative methods in evaluating children's reading. One such method is the use of portfolios. This method empowers children and teachers with control over goals and methods of instruction. Students take responsibility in collaboration with the teacher for establishing the goals for their own learning. Thus, portfolios can link instruction and assessment more closely.

The following discussion describes the implementation of reading portfolios in a first grade classroom. The portfolio development of two students was focused on in this implementation stage. The students were chosen because of their strong interest in the portfolio process and their willingness to set goals and take responsibility for their learning.
