Student Portfolios have been created for each child in the Elementary Division of Grace Christian School. Grace portfolios will be a combination of each student’s assessments, work samples, test scores and other accomplishments. They tell a more complete story of the student’s academic progress than a single report card or one Terra Nova test score. Some students are not good test takers and portfolios offer an alternative way to demonstrate mastery. The fun part of portfolios is to see the progress over time. They can also be very useful to identify any gaps in the learning process which can then be retaught and help boost academic progress. Portfolios will be shared at Parent Teacher Conferences so parents can team with the teachers on how to best support students. We are very, very excited to share our Student Portfolios!!
