For the sixth grade students, I took a large piece of white drawing paper I had folded in half to create a folder for each student. I attached the following forms to the outside of the folder:
|Portfolio Self-assessment Form by Mrs. P @ CreateArtWithMe.blogspot.com|
- A checklist of all the projects they created during the semester as well as a self-assessment for their effort during the semester.
- The Art Portfolio Self-Assessment form that you see above.
- Finish all of their outstanding projects
- Gather all of the projects listed on the checklist and put them inside the folder (names on everything!!)
- Complete the self-assessment regarding their EFFORT
- Complete the PORTFOLIO self-assessment
- Pass their completed portfolio and forms in to me to review
Having the students complete the self-assessments was also a win/win. Students were able to communicate with me about how they felt they did during the semester and I had that information as I reviewed their work. The portfolio self-assessment form was short, but allowed the students to look at all their work as a whole and comment on it. I think many of the students were surprised to see everything they had done and how well they had done it! I received comments such as "I didn't know I was an artist!" and "Wow, I can't believe how much stuff I did!" Completing the portfolio self-assessment also led to a richer class discussion on the last day.
This was a great way to wrap up the semester--I definitely plan to do something like this again!
