Summary: Standard classroom tests tend to showcase what students know at that point in time and do not usually reflect real-life mathematics. They are not always accurate indicators of what students understand and how they understand it. Portfolios are tools that allow students a better opportunity to exhibit mathematical growth in understanding and attitude over time. This article describes how one teacher used portfolios as an alternative assessment in her mathematics classroom. (Contains 4 figures.) (ERIC)
