"Portfolio assessment" (Critical Guide, E.D. Hirsch Jr)

A phrase for a version of performance-based assessment. In portfolio assessment, students preserve in a portfolio all or some of their productions during the course of the semester or year. At the end of the time period, students are graded for the totality of their production. 

It is a device that has long been used for the teaching of writing and painting. But there its utility ceases. 

It has proved to be virtually useless for large-scale, high stakes testing.

"banking theory of schooling" 
"culturally-biased curriculum" 
"outcomes-based education" 
"research has shown"
