In Sweden a little more than a decade ago, portfolios were unheard of as a tool for assessment and learning, except in fields related to the visual arts such as architecture, design and photography. Currently portfolio assessment is being used in a wide variety of settings, in various domains, and at all levels of education from primary school through university studies, to assess and promote progress and achievement. Portfolios have rapidly become a stock in trade of modern schooling. Researchers, such as Davies and LeMahieu (2003), have expressed optimism about the role of portfolios in educational reform. Research on portfolio assessment, however, is still insufficient concerning both conceptual issues and empirical evidence.
