A question you need to ask
yourself before integrating
portfolios in your classroom:!
Do I want students to
assess the processes
(and strategies) used to
learn a language OR do I
want students to reﬂect on
their ﬁnal products?!
Reﬂecting on processes!
• Students upon the connection
between the communicative
competencies and their
acquisition of the language!
• Students use “I can…”
statements to verbalize their
strengths and learning of
• Students use “I need to…” to
establish goals and determine
what is needed to improve!
My department is slowly working
towards this type of self-assessment!
