The second edition of PORTFOLIO AND PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT updates the growing nature of the trend toward portfolio assessment as a highly effective methodology. It effectively develops youngsters as self-assessors while it weds assessment and instruction as inseparable. The text provides a logical approach to developing and relying on either portfolio or performance assessment with the emphasis in the revision shifting more to the selection of an appropriate performance test design and battery. The book is a rich source of ideas for starting, building, and interpreting student language portfolio collections. Ample appendices provides the teacher with targeted sources and black-lined tools for duplication and use in the classroom.
