What is Portfolio Assessment?

A portfolio is a collection of work done by a particular person. An artist will have samples of their artwork, a writer will have samples of their writing, and a student will have examples of their academic work. An assessment of the portfolio is done to determine if the portfolio’s creator ‘has what it takes’ to be hired for a certain job or to do the work in a certain school. In K-12 schools, a portfolio assessment may be performed to determine if a student has met the goals of the curriculum. For more information look here:
