Product Description
Portfolio-based learning is exactly what it sounds like. It’s learning based on artifacts in a portfolio. You then use the portfolio to guide individual conferences, conversations, and finally, growth.

My 5th Grade Language CC Standards Checklist is a great way to get those artifacts for your language standards. Here's how it works! (the following information is taken straight from the resource)

I like to have at least three points during the school year to assess my students to chart progress. Here’s how I do it!
➳I assess the first few weeks of school (fall). Have the students complete all of the Can You Master It? pages. You will want to make sure you get this accomplished during the first few days of school so you can begin teaching! The students MAY know and understand a FEW of the standards, but don’t expect them to have a complete understanding. This is your foundational starting point.
➳Once I review/introduce a skill in class with practice, I have them go back to their portfolio and complete a new set of Can You Master It? pages. I consider this my winter assessment. Some standards may not be covered in winter (maybe still in fall or going into spring) but I still include them on the winter portfolio pages.
➳Once a standard is complete, I look at all of the students’ portfolios and offer a grade and personal feedback. The grade is just a number to base their ability/progress on. I don’t actually use it as a graded assignment. We will use their work and my feedback as a starting point so students can begin to work on their language skills and take our conferencing conversations into consideration.
➳Once all standards have been introduced, reviewed, and practiced, the students will begin to complete their last Can You Master It? portfolio pages. This will be their last ones for the school year! Students should be able to {hopefully} meet or exceed the skill the standard is asking the students to perform.
➳Once all three have been completed for the year (fall, winter, spring) you can tally up their results and graph their progress on the chart. I often times allow my students to plot their scores so they can see their growth (or lack there of)! You may want to do this after each set (fall, winter, spring) is complete so students can see the work they need to do to get where they need to be.
