If students are expected to compile portfolios of their work, make sure to begin this process early in the course.

  • You may want to have students include unit reflections or other self-assessments in their portfolios so they can monitor their own progress in the class.
  • Extra info from the CS Teaching Tips Team: To make these reflections as useful as possible, have students complete them shortly after finishing the activities they are reflecting on. This will also help students stay on track for completing their portfolios.
