E-Portfolio Backlash

There's plenty of good information about e-portfolios in both of these articles, including some of the excellent benefits. What worries me is the political undertone to the criticisms of portfolios -- it's as if the pro-standardized-test folks are waking up to the threat and they don't like what they see. I suppose it was only a matter of time. Heaven forbid that we come up with a way of measuring what students have actually learned and accomplished, rather than just seeing how well they take tests!Thanks to Gwen for passing these along.
