The first step in planning portfolio assessment for your classroom is determining the purpose of the assessment. This means deciding what you want to measure and why you want to make that measurement. The purpose of the portfolio is the foundation on which the entire project rests. The purpose should be specific, but not too narrow.

One of the greatest strengths of portfolio assessment in program evaluation may be its power as a tool to communicate program impact to those outside of the program. While this kind of data may not take the place of statistics about numbers served, costs, or test scores, many policy makers, funders, and community members find visual or descriptive evidence of successes of individuals or programs to be very persuasive.
