 Archived: STUDENT PORTFOLIOS: CLASSROOM USES
Portfolios are useful as a support to the new instructional approaches that emphasize the student's role in constructing understanding and the teacher's role in promoting understanding.
While portfolios were developed on the model of the visual and performing arts tradition of showcasing accomplishments, portfolios in classrooms today are a highly flexible instructional and assessment tool, adaptable to diverse curricula, student age/grade levels, and administrative contexts.
Portfolios can provide structure for involving students in developing and understanding criteria for good efforts, in coming to see the criteria as their own, and in applying the criteria to their own and other students' work.

 How to produce a teaching portfolio
An important point: the portfolio is not an exhaustive compilation of all of the documents and materials that bear on teaching performance.
The items chosen for the portfolio depend on the teaching style of the professor, the purpose for which the portfolio is prepared, and any content requirements of a professor's department or institution.
One element of the portfolio which may go unnoticed is the date, an item important to any portfolio because it helps the faculty member establish a base line from which to measure actual development in teaching performance.

 Preparing a Teaching Portfolio
Most portfolios are NOT collections of everything that the professor has done in the way of teaching over his or her entire career.
Portfolios provide documented evidence of teaching that is connected to the specifics and contexts of what is being taught.
Portfolios are a step toward a more public, professional view of teaching.

 Portfolio Management Forum sponsored by ProSight   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Portfolio management plays a critical role during both the development, where product development is committed to meeting lifecycle requirements and hitting gates, and the assessment, where subjective and objective criteria about the progress are considered, weighed, and given the go-ahead or no-go.
Using portfolios of similar elements based on similar metrics allows executives to gain a complete understanding of the problems and the benefits, ensuring that critical issues are not overlooked.
Portfolio management techniques are most commonly used by upper level management and executives (like CIOs CFOs, and CEOs) to gain a better understanding of both all the investments and their performance.

Although they use technology, web portfolios are not about technology; they are about habits of thinking and the practices that cultivate those habits.
A web portfolio is collection of work that a student chooses in order to illustrate the unfolding meaning of their career.

 Digital Portfolios:
Portfolios have long been in use in the arts; artists, dancers, musicians and actors all have traditionally developed portfolios of their work which were used as a demonstration of competency in their given field.
At a growing number of universities, portfolios are integrated into the teacher education program for the purpose of documenting accomplishment of program goals and to demonstrate growth of student performance over time.
Portfolios can motivate students to learn because they have the power to make connections between theory and practice and to select items for the portfolio that express their purpose and design.

 Teaching Portfolio
A "teaching portfolio" is a compilation of information about a faculty member's teaching, made by that faculty member, often for use in consideration for tenure or promotion.
The very fact that the teaching portfolio is now in place should serve to underscore the increasing emphasis on the value of teaching at WSU and in higher education nationally.
The original impetus for proposing the portfolio at WSU was the fact that personnel documents from different units described teaching activities in such varied ways that often it was difficult, if not impossible, to use them fairly or to obtain useful aggregate results.

 Portfolio Assessment
Portfolio approaches to assessing literacy have been described in a wide variety of publications (Flood and Lapp, 1989; Lamme and Hysmith, 1991; Matthews, 1990; Tierney, Carter, and Desai, 1991; Valencia, 1990; Wolf, 1989) so that many descriptions of portfolios exist.
Generally speaking, a literacy portfolio is a systematic collection of a variety of teacher observations and student products, collected over time, that reflect a student's developmental status and progress made in literacy.
Portfolios can be thought of as a form of "embedded assessment"; that is, the assessment tasks are a part of instruction.
