Review "The Portfolio Standard provides an antidote to our current national mania for measuring, proposing instead that today's standard setters learn from the students they are so anxious to assess. Without our students' active participation in reflecting on their own learning, the authors argue, we are left with static, outdated, arbitrary notions of "what [our] students should know and be able to do." Without such active partnerships, our roles as teachers wither. This book, by contrast, offers thoughts, projects, and firsthand accounts to portfolio keeping in the voices of the keepers themselves."--BOOK JACKET
