A study on the application of portfolio assessment in teaching reading to 2nd year students at Department of English - American Languages and Cultures, College of Foreign Languages, Vietnam National University, Hanoi

The conceptual framework guiding the development of curriculum and instruction practices in the English as a second language (ESL) classroom has undergone significant modification during the last fifteen years. This shift in pedagogical theory has resultedin the increasing use of student-centered communicative approaches inthe classroom. These approaches include process writing, process reading, communicative competence, and whole language (Goodman, 1989; Heymsfeld, 1989; Shanklin & Rhodes, 1989, inMoya, S. & O'Malley, J. M, 1994) and are distinguished by their focus on language functions and meaning and the processes of learning. However, proponents of process-oriented curricula and instruction claim that traditional assessment techniques are often incompatible with current ESL classroom practices. Studies by experts like Brandt, 1989, Shepard, 1989, Rothman, 1990b, and Wiggins, 1989b concluded that standardized testing is seen as particularly irrelevant to process learning (Moya, S. & O'Malley, J. M, 1994). Because of the incompatibility of process learning and product assessment, educators have begun to explore alternative forms of student assessment. Among these forms, portfolio is increasingly cited as a viable alternative to standardized testing in evaluating student progress (Moya, S. & O'Malley, J. M., 1994, Anderson, N. 1999, Somchoen Honsa, 2002, Day, R., 1993). Despite the significance of portfolio assessment in the development of curriculum and instructions, research on this area has been surprisingly scarce. Also, in the division where I work – Language Skills Division II, Department of English - American Language and Cultures (DEALC), this method has not yet been applied officially and systematically in evaluating the reading skills of the second year students.
