A student portfolio is collected as an archive to assess all the work done by students and to keep a constant record. In general it represents a student work collection that exhibits student’s activities and shows his progress over a learning period.
- When students can monitor their progress over a period of time, it greatly stimulates their further learning work.
- The best way to exhibit students’ achievements is their portfolio.
- A portfolio enables a student to be valued and rewarded by a teacher for some study or research work that a traditional test can’t, and this work can be reviewed at a scientific student conference
Student portfolio includes:
- data on all control forms and marks to show students’ skill upgrading over time,
- assignments determined by a teacher,
- assignments selected by a student on his own initiative.
The student portfolio structure Organic Chemistry
Tasks for self-directed studies (SDS) and reports (group and individual projects prepared in the form of presentations, crosswords, glossary, essay):
- Tasks for problem solving (creative problems for knowledge mastering; results of the learning role game performance to solve some problem situations and to choose the optimal method of organic compounds synthesis)
- Creative works fulfilled on student’s initiative (for example, reports on virtual laboratory works and research laboratory works)
- Short quiz performed at lecture classes for the unit learning reinforcement
- Research reports on Faculty and University Student Conferences
- Articles in the Collected papers of Students’ Scientific Practical Conferences
