RDG 509 - Portfolio Assessment

(Cr: 3)
This course will examine the movement toward 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 literary experiences in which pupils engage in the classroom; 2) assessment should be continuous to chronicle ongoing development; 3) assessment should be multi-dimensional, reflecting the multi-faceted nature of literacy development; and 4) assessment should include active, collaborative reflection by both teacher and students. Activities, content, and materials are related to the current Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks for English Language Arts.
