The Integration of Interpretive Teaching and Assessment: Instructed by Portfolio Assessment

Fen Gao


Portfolio assessment focuses on the learning process, which combines comprehensively both the process and outcome. By means of test, questionnaire and interview, this study employs both qualitative and quantitative methods to explore the impacts on the learners’ interpretive ability and learning autonomy instructed by portfolio assessment, finally resulting in the integration of interpretive teaching and assessment. The results show that the post-test scores of the Experimental group are higher than the Control group, particularly in terms of listening and analysis, plus translation, and also significantly higher than the pre-test scores of the Experimental group. In addition, the questionnaire and interview reveal that the testees not only increase their activeness in interpretive training but also develop their strong autonomy in learning, thus enhancing their meta cognitive ability in the interpretive training.
