Portfolios are… a great tool to help students feel ownership over their work. They also encourage students to be more responsible, allow students to set goals that they are motivated to achieve, and allow students to make connections between learning and assessing.

How it works…

  1. throughout the term, students complete assignments
  2. the students then create criteria for what they will be including in their portfolio
  3. the students then filter through their completed assignments and determine what they will include in their portfolio
  4. Once this is completed, it is often used as an assessment tool at parent-teacher interviews or student lead conferences to show student growth
