From Moons Discussion

Assessment should include

Depth of reective thinking (Critical & Dialogic reection is the goal) several ways of assessing reective work (there is no one way) Deep approach of learning as compared to a surface approach (p. 5) evidence of metacognitive thinking Is reection being contextualized? Is the object or context of reection described so reader can understand? engaging students (us) in developing our own assessment criteria for reection (p. 15)

Assessment shouldnt include

grading / numerical scores difcult judgements on works that may be very diverse and/or creative a recipe for reection checklist or /linear process to work through pressure (through monitoring and assessment) for students to write what they think the tutor wants to see (p. 15)

Assessment may include

a denition of reection (?) continual feedback learning demonstrated with different forms of representation

From Scoring Guide for Portfolio Assessment (English 102)

well organized, coherent appropriate, effective design error-free links /connections between content & ideas

what a portfolio is not or what a weak portfolio looks like questions that dont contribute to understanding of what makes a strong portfolio. i.e., Is the portfolio complete? Technical pieces such as do pages load is it saved in the proper space. They can be distracting and out of control of students. Students inventing new ways to demonstrate learning... invests is too strong of a word (creativity instead)
