Evidence Portfolio

The notion of evidence portfolio is used in the field of education to refer to an evaluation system that consists of the collection of products developed by a student. In this way, the teacher can evaluate the student's work.

The collection of evidence must be periodic to show progress in the different curricular areas. The portfolio of evidence, therefore, is a dynamic tool that transcends traditional objective tests (such as written or oral exams), but doesn't exclude them.

Abstracts of texts, charts, graphs, concept maps, digital documents, self-assessments and standardized tests can be part of the evidence portfolio.

The use of an evidence portfolio isn't limited to the school. In the workplace, this type of portfolio collects the knowledge, skills and abilities of an individual who demonstrates, in this way, his strength to perform in a job. A hierarchical superior will be responsible for analyzing these evidences and judging how the employee responds to the training process.

The evidence portfolio is expected to articulate the following elements in an orderly manner, both in electronic and physical format:
