Session Description

Student portfolios are a buzzword in education right now. But what should go into a student portfolio? In this session we will examine research from the Marzano research center and the Seven Strategies of Assessment for Learning by author Jan Chappuis to answer how focused attention to learning goals, assessments, and student participation can close the gaps and help all students use their portfolios to individualize their learning path.

Learning Targets for this session are:

  • I can create student-friendly learning targets to help students develop a clear vision of the content standards they are responsible for learning;
  • I can develop rubrics and examples of strong and weak work to help students develop a clear vision of the content standards they are responsible for learning;
  • I can use effective feedback related to student’s learning targets to help students revise and make progress toward their learning goals;
  • I can teach students to self-assess, peer-assess, and set goals for further learning;
  • I can develop and offer focused practice and revision opportunities for students;
  • I can engage students in tracking, reflecting on, and sharing their learning progress.
