Abstract

According to a study conducted by the American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education (2002), approximately 90 percent of schools, colleges, and departments of education currently use portfolios to make decisions regarding student admission, retention, and promotion; 40 percent use portfolios for teacher certification or licensing. Given the pervasiveness of assessment portfolios in higher education, a need exists to study their effectiveness, validity, and reliability as a high-stakes assessment instrument. This presentation will address three major themes: (1) suggestions for implementing portfolio assessments; (2) a generalized model for portfolio design; and, (3) a list of requirements and caveats for implementing portfolios as an alternative to traditional high-stakes assessments.
