Abstract

Portfolios can allow educators to assess student progress in an authentic way that relates instruction to assessment. Through portfolio collection, students can become actively involved in their own learning as they reflect on their work and establish personal instructional goals for future learning. Writing portfolios in a fourth grade classroom were used as an authentic form of assessment. The implementation of this form of assessment is described. Three students were followed through their initial year of writing portfolio collection. Through selection of exhibits and conferences with the teacher, the students examined their writing, reflected on its strengths, and established goals for future writing.
