Development and Implementation of Student Portfolios in Foreign Language Programs

Audiences of the Portfolio

The term "audience" refers to the person(s) the portfolio is intended for. In the same way that the main purpose of the student portfolio will help determine what goes into the portfolio, the teachers' decision as to the portfolio's primary audience will help guide decisions concerning the portfolio's contents, the frequency of placing items into it, etc. As previously mentioned, parents, teachers, students or appropriate administrators (i.e, foreign-language department chairperson, school principals, school curriculum planners) can all view a student portfolio though different lenses.
