Portfolio’s for Assessment and for Presentation
Session Summary:

Portfolios have great value for assessment and presentation of knowledge
and skills. This session will explore what a presentation portfolio is and how google sites can be
used to create a student portfolio that travels from grade to grade with the student. This session
will also explore how to develop student skills and foster a love of learning using an assessment
portfolio (our tool is chalkandwire.com but we will suggest other options.) We will look at how
developing portfolios forces the articulation of institutional standards, the creation of clear
rubrics, and the de-emphasis of grades. We will explore how the portfolio can ensure the
teaching and assessment of skills and institutional priorities like research, presentation, writing,
leadership and service across disciplines.
