How To Make Portofolio for Students

Portfolios can be used as an authentic assessment tool in the classroom, or as a method to showcase your professional accomplishments. This collection of articles and resources will help your students build portfolios to demonstrate what they've learned so that you can monitor their progress with fewer tests. There are also resources for collecting your professional accomplishments to provide potential employers with an example of your work.

Student portfolios are a way to monitor student progress and show growth over a period of time while maintaining documentation for what students are learning. Creating a portfolio enables parents to see their children's work quickly during parent conferences and the Laurent Clerc National Deaf Education Center states "through the portfolio process, students develop the self-awareness, goal-setting, and decision-making skills essential for lifelong self-determination." 
  1. Get a binder and dividers. Put the dividers in the binder and use them to separate the different areas within the portfolio.
  2. Determine how many sections the portfolio will contain. Decide if the portfolio will have a section for each subject area or a few subject areas. PreKinders also suggests things such as "photographs, art and stories."
  3. Label the areas of the portfolio. Use the divider labels to write the different name of the subject areas then insert the labels into the part of the divider that holds the labels.
  4. Insert student work in the appropriate section. For example, if it's a writing sample, insert it in the writing section of the portfolio. Punch holes in the work sample if the paper doesn't already have holes in it or to avoid punching holes in the work sample, put the work in clear sheet protectors and then insert the work into the portfolio.
