Authors and summary: This is chapter eight from Teaching ESL Composition by Ferris and Hedgecock.
Thoughts: I really like the idea of portfolio grading. It is much more inline with process oriented teaching and autonomous decision making on the part of the students. I want to learn much more about how to design courses around a portfolio, as I am not confident from this one reading that I could effectively implement in the classroom. However, it definitely hits me as a stronger option for assessing student work.
