EDU 501 - Portfolio Assessment

This course will examine the movement towards the portfolio approach to literacy assessment. The four theoretical cornerstones on which the concept of portfolio assessment is built will be reviewed: 1) appropriate assessment should come from a variety of literacy experiences in which pupils engage in the classroom; 2) assessment should be continuous to chronicle ongoing development; 3) assessment should be multidimensional, reflecting the multifaceted nature of literacy development; and 4) assessment should include active, collaborative reflection by both teacher and student. Activities, content, and materials are related to the current and relevant Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks.
