  1. 1. Portfolios in the Classroom<br />Documenting and Showcasing Student and Faculty Work<br />

  3. 3. Understanding Assessment<br />Pre or Diagnostic<br />Formative<br />Summative <br />Auditive vs. Educative<br />
  4. 4. Types of Portfolios<br />Developmental/Growth Portfolios: demonstrate the advancement and development of student skills over a period of time. Developmental portfolios are considered works-in-progress and include both self-assessment and reflection/feedback elements. The primary purpose is to provide communication between students and faculty. <br />
  5. 5. Assessment Portfolios<br />Assessment Portfolios: demonstrate student competence and skill for well-defined areas. These may be end-of-course or program assessments primarily for evaluating student performance. The primary purpose is to evaluate student competency as defined by program standards and outcomes.<br />
  6. 6. Showcase Portfolios<br />Showcase Portfolios: demonstrate exemplary work and student skills. This type of portfolio is created at the end of a program to highlight the quality of student work. Students typically show this portfolio to potential employers to gain employment at the end of a degree program. <br />
  7. 7. Hybrid Portfolios<br />Hybrids: Most portfolios are hybrids of the three types of portfolios listed above. Rarely will you find a portfolio that is strictly used for assessment, development or showcase purposes. <br />

  16. 16. Why Portfolios?<br />
  17. 17. What to Include<br />Student Information: name and basic info<br />Table of Contents: or various way to display links to contents of the portfolio <br />Learner Goals <br />Curricular standards and/or criteria: used to align the contents of the portfolio to institutional, departmental or course curriculum <br />Rubrics: can be used to assess student work. A rubric is a criteria-rating scale, which provides the instructor with a tool to track student performance. They also inform students of the course/departmental/institutional expectations and should be aligned with standards.<br />Guidelines: used to select appropriate artifacts to keep the collection from growing haphazardly <br />Artifacts: examples of student work including documents, images, video, audio, etc. (can be chosen by student, instructor or both)<br />Instructor feedback <br />Self-reflection pieces: a portfolio without reflections is just a multimedia presentation or an electronic resume <br />
