Summary

The progress school districts throughout New Jersey made in implementing a system of portfolio assessment and the factors that promoted or prohibited the implementation of this system were studied. In all, 262 teachers and 109 administrators completed and returned questionnaires on portfolio assessment. Findings indicate that teachers and administrators believe that portfolio assessment can provide an effective means of assessing students' performance in schools, but that actual practices in their schools have not been as successful. Critical to the success of implementing a system of portfolio assessment is the need to identify clearly when and how portfolios are to be used. It is also important to identify the information that portfolios will contain, and teachers and administrators thought that these issues had not been resolved. Survey results highlight the importance of adequate staff training for teachers and administrators involved in the implementation process. (Contains 17 references.) (SLD)
