Abstract

Writing portfolios have been popular for quite some time. One of the major characteristics that often defines the use of the portfolio system is self-assessment. This study employed an action research approach. In a school context (Hong Kong) governed by one-shot high-stakes writing assessment (IELTS), a portfolio-based curriculum was developed, and data regarding it success was gathered and reported on. The article focused on student and teacher perceptions as to the benefits of self-assessment.
