Abstract

This article describes the evolution of student evaluations. Traditionally a major, if not the sole, method of student evaluation was a paper-and-pencil test. In the past some instructors assigned a number of small-scale, disconnected practice exercises. Later they offered a menu of projects of a larger scale. Today the trend is to encourage students to compile portfolios of professional quality work, organized around major themes. The nature of portfolios and their advantages and limitations will be explored. The use of portfolios in two different educational technology courses will be described." In many schools, students are being evaluated on the basis of portfolios that document what they can do in language arts, science, social studies, and other skill areas. Portfolios often include such items as student-produced books, videos, and audio-visual presentations," (Heinich, Molenda, Russell, & Smaldino, 1999, p. 20)
