Growth portfolios

Here are five possible types of purpose for the work you might include. You will need to comment on this at the beginning of your reflections for each piece of work you will include in your portfolio.

For example: –

“I included this piece of work to show growth or change over time.”

 

a. to show growth or change over time
  • early and later pieces of work
  • early and later tests/scores
  • rough drafts and final drafts
  • reflections on growth
  • goal-setting sheets
  • reflections on progress toward goal(s)
b. to help develop process skills
  • samples which reflect growth of process skills
  • self-reflection sheets accompanying samples of work
  • reflection sheets from teacher or peer
  • identification of strengths/weaknesses
  • goal-setting sheets
  • reflections on progress towards goal(s)
c. to identify strengths/weaknesses
  • samples of work reflecting specifically identified strengths and weaknesses
  • reflections on strengths and weaknesses of samples
  • goal-setting sheets
  • reflection on progress towards goal(s)
d. to track development of one or more products or performances
  • obviously, drafts of the specific product or performance to be tracked
  • self-reflections on drafts
  • reflection sheets from teacher or peer
e. to showcase end-of-year/semester accomplishments
  • samples of best work
  • samples of earlier and later work to document progress
  • final tests or scores
