A portfolio is a systematic and purposeful collection of learners’ work that demonstrates achievement of learning outcomes over time. This tool supports instructors in planning effectively for portfolio assessment.
The portfolio planning and implementation tool is based on the principles outlined in Stage 4: Integrate Assessment of theESL Literacy Curriculum Framework.
This tool includes four parts:
an overview of four types of portfolios
a process for selecting and using portfolios
a classroom portfolio sample process
portfolio planning templates for collaborative learning, showcase and evaluation portfolios
This tool can be used by individual instructors or in a course guide or curriculum package designed to support instructors as they implement the curriculum.
