Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The whole language instructional concept focuses on children creating meaning through the language processes. One of the many aspects of this instructional concept is the close relationship between instruction and assessment. In assessing children's involvement in the language processes, descriptive, or qualitative techniques, need to be used as a collaboration between the teacher and the individual child. From assessing their growth and instructional needs, children with the support of their teacher can set further goals for instruction. This process of setting goals, striving to reach them, assessing growth and instructional needs, and reestablishing goals is an ongoing process. Several assessment techniques can be used in ongoing instruction-assessment. One that can greatly facilitate children's learning during a school year and throughout their school years is the portfolio.
