The first draft of this manual was completed and sent to pilot test teachers in Spring 1997. Based on feedback the manual was revised and sent out to pilot teachers in Summer 1997. Teachers implemented portfolios in their classrooms in the 1997-1998 school year. The NCLRC provided support for these teachers and asked for bimonthly feedback.

Evaluation and revision of the second draft, based on teacher feedback and continued staff investigation of portfolios, is now complete. This manual and half-day, one-day, and two-day workshops are now available from the NCLRC.
