    Default Printing out work - Portfolio Information

    I am considering using time4 learning for one of more of my children. I have to have printed work for an evaluator to see in a portfolio at the end of the year. Will I be able to print completed work so that my child's WORK can be shown and not just an end of the unit grade or a progress report?

    thanks

    Do you have to have all completed work, or just samples? The tests and writing assignments are easily printed. The tests, especially, have made very attractice additions to my children's portfolios. They look great when printed.

    Thanks. I think if I just have a good sampling I will be fine. It sounds like it will work for us if there are tests and writing assignments.

    I guess when we start our two week trial period we can decide for sure.

    I edited the subject line of this thread to generate responses from those interested in portfolios. How are some of you organizing your children's portfolios? What kinds of things do you include? What does your state require?

    Here are some things I include in my own children's portfolios. Our state does not require a portfolio, but I keep them anyway.

    Standardized test results

    Printed Progress Reports from Time4Learning's online portfolio

    Lesson Plans for the appropriate grade

    Completed printable worksheets (Time4Learning's "Resources")
    http://www.time4learning.com/hints/Hints_50.shtml

    Samples of Odyssey Writer writing assignments

    Samples of Time4Learning tests (print by clicking on test score)

    My children's journals. Next year, we'll use an "official" Time4Learning Journal, available here: http://www.cafepress.com/time4learning

    Photos of field trips taken and brochures or postcards from the places we visit

    Newsletters from our homeschool co-op with activities we've taken part in highlighted

    Church bulletins with activities we've taken part in highlighted

    Samples of arts and crafts (or photos of larger, three-dimensional projects)

    Programs from piano recitals and other performances

    Enrollment forms for Little League and other athletic programs

    Ticket stubs from plays and other events attended

    Lists, lists, lists: A list of books read, a list of field trips taken, another of extra-curricular activities, one of volunteer work and community service, and another of awards and recognitions. Some states require an attendance record, so some parents would include that.

    Please share regarding your own portfolios.
