So, you want to get to know your readers
You want to assess their progress and track their growth. You probably already have the 'data'. You just have to find and assemble it. Why not put it all in one place--Student Literacy Assessment Portfolios.
That word--data--can be so blinding. However…as like-minded teaching professionals, we all know it’s important to get to know our readers.
So, just what is a Student Literacy Portfolio?
It might be called a Literacy Assessment Portfolio
OR Student Literacy Folders
OR Literacy Assessment Folders
OR Literacy Portfolio
OR Student Literacy Portfolios
It doesn't matter what your school district calls it...
it's all the same!
It's a place to collect reading and writing student artifacts to review and track progress of student literacy growth.

Test scores aren’t the complete picture of a reader and a writer. We shouldn’t let standardized testing scores define a student’s growth and progress in literacy. Let’s face it…some kids are not going to receive the scores they want to receive on state tests. Let’s do better than that!
Let’s help students see their growth
without THAT test score clouding their vision!
