The Language Portfolio is one of the many assessment tools that can be used in class.
I'm using it with MS1 learners and believe me it is giving excellent results and many satisfactions among the learners, teachers and some parents as well.
If you want to learn more about the LP,just download the document from :
or: send your e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll try to transfer the file.
I do confess this type of assessment is one of the most time consuming but " the more you give it, the best you'll get from it". If you try it, you'll be addict to it.
It is not easy to achieve but it deserves.
There will be time for more details, comments, experiences since it is a lifelong process.
Study the document and I am ready to answer all your questions.
Best of luck.
