Portfolio Assessment Grades

Sample Portfolio Assessment
Becky over at Organizing Made Fun recently asked her readers if they use binders to organize. I use binders at the end of every school year to organize our Portfolio Assessments. While I don't use standardized testing to assess my students progress, I do give them tests, report cards and a type of assessment. I do this both to track their progress for future college documentation purposes and so that they can have a sense of accomplishment at the end of each year.

Sample Report Card
I start by tracking their grades on work completed through out the school year and random tests and quizzes that give. I also give them an end of year test in each subject and this grade is figured into their end of year grade as well. So in the left hand column I have a end of year grade for each subject based on progress and in the right hand column I have a grade based on actual work and test scores. I average these two grades together to get an end of year total.

Include Their Best Work

I like to fill the book with their best work and I also have a sheet to track things like, My Favorite Field Trip, Favorite Bible Verse, What I Want to Be When I Grow Up and My Favorite Book This Year.

How I became Considering frugal

Fueled by the growing list of pollution related allergies my family suffered from each day, and inspired by my 97 year old grandmother who could recycle ANYTHING before recycling was cool, back in 2011, I decided (in the spirit of the Julie/Julia Project...) to embark on a journey to see just how much one family could do to change our planet. I didn't consult any other parties before I launched this idea. Thankfully my husband, daughter and son are usually my biggest supporters. Here is the catch; as I'm normally very thrifty (you can note from early blog posts), I was looking for ways that I could reduce our carbon footprint and make socially responsible purchases without increasing our spending. Mmmmmm. We succeed in changing some of our habits a bit and finding ways to reduce our footprint. There were lots of fun epic fails alone the way too! But the biggest change we have made over the course of the last six years, was to move from the mega city of Phoenix to Wyoming. You can read my full bio on my About Me page.
