Assessment capable teachers and students constantly provide evidence of the learning journey to make learning and growth visible and provide opportunities for ongoing reflection.

The portfolio is like a learning journal. It captures initial misconceptions and questions, as well as the development of knowledge, understandings, and skills. Student portfolios play a major role in the reporting process in PYP classrooms.

In the past few years, we have changed our thinking about portfolios to empower students and facilitate ongoing discussion with families surrounding learning and growth. In this short video, we will highlight these thought changes and share 4 strategies you can implement in your classroom to make the most out of portfolios!
