PORTFOLIO

Guidelines for drawing up a portfolio for the CASS component for Woodwork in the Senior
Certificate Examinations.


1.    Introduction

      A portfolio has been chosen as the most appropriate way               of assessing the CASS
      component of the Grade 12 syllabus.

      Definition of a portfolio. (Use this definition to explain the basics of a portfolio).

      A portfolio is a collection of a learner's work over a period of time. Educators (and
      learners) select samples of the learner's work for a portfolio. The portfolio also includes
      written observations by the educator, as well as the learner's self-assessment. Educators
      provide guidelines and direct the learners to select what goes into their portfolios and to
      keep them focused and manageable.

      The content of the portfolio will depend on the purpose of the portfolio, the grade or
      developmental level of the learners and who will use the portfolio.

2.        Rationale for the introduction of CASS at Grade 12


2.1       The benefits of the introduction of CASS will include the following:



        Learners will be assessed using different and appropriate assessment methodologies and
         this will provide a more valid assessment of the learner's performance.

        Assessment will now take place in an authentic context i.e. the learner will be assessed
         in a realistic situation which is integral to the learning process.

        During assessment, there will be immediate feedback into the learning process, thus
         promoting the formative role of assessment.

        Provides opportunities that are impossible in an once-off external examination.

        A variety of skills is able to be assessed by internal assessment which otherwise would
         not have been considered for assessment purposes.

        Assessment is on-going and therefore learners are compelled to work consistently and
         this will contribute to re-instating the culture of teaching and learning.

        Judgement of the learner's performance (summative assessment) will now be carried out
         by the educator who works closely with the learner.

3.        The breakdown of school-based assessment (H.G. & S.G.)

The general breakdown of school-based assessment for Technical subjects with only a practical
component should follow the guidelines in Table 3.1

                                                                       essays, debates)
                                                                      Design

                                               Table 3.1


Please Note:

The term Preparatory examination is used here in preference to Trial or Prelims as preparatory
indicates a formative aspect of these examinations. The Preparatory examinations are
formative in that:

         they prepare the learners in the skills needed to write the final examination
         they inform the educator of the learner's strengths and weaknesses.



                                                    5
Assessment methods:

         Assessment is still the responsibility of the educator although self-assessment, peer-
          assessment and group-assessment may take place.

         The moderated practical mark, is totally independent of the composition of the portfolio's
          mark, thus the moderated practical mark is excluded from the portfolio's mark.

         The practical component in the portfolio is an additional practical assessment which must
          be added.

         Criteria for assessment of practical work (Circular 42/1996) are still applicable.


4.       Understanding a portfolio


4.1 The Portfolio consists of:

         The selection of the learner's work chosen by the educator
         The selection of a learner's work chosen by the learner
         The learner's work that can be used to show development and progress over a specified
          period of time.
         Assessed tasks which can be used to determine standards between schools and within a
          system.

4.2        Record keeping

Each educator must keep the following:

         a brief (i.e. worksheets, instruction sheets, etc.) of each practical task on which the
          continuous assessment mark is based.
         a marking memo for each of the assessed tasks. (In the case where the educator is
          using a system that supplies model answers this is acceptable and drawings need not be
          redrawn.)
         a record of the marks awarded to each learner for each task. Example annexure A & B.


NOTE:

         All the items noted must be kept for moderation.
         Educators should keep a copy, for their personal records, of the marks awarded to each
          learner.
         An example of a point system, annexure C may be used for assessment purposes.



                                                    6
5.         Some ideas for the Educator to remember

In any given assignment or task, learners should be informed as to the following:

        The exact aim or end product expected of the experiment, assignment, presentation or
         task.

        Format that will be acceptable.

        What will not be acceptable.

        Sources available for reference, research, comparison and assistance

        Assessment procedure to be followed.

        Exact, non-negotiable dates for handing in assignments and check points along the way.

        Group work: individual effort of each learner as well as the group result will be assessed.
         Every learner has to produce proof of work he or she has done.

        Research, collection of samples and information, consultation, etc. may take place
         outside of the classroom, but the final report, findings, conclusion, etc, will always be
         done under the educator's close supervision and signed as being the learner's own,
         original work.

        Any work that is not learner's own, or has been directly copied from any other source,
         may lead to all of his work being discounted and no marks being awarded for the work.
         Repeated dishonesty will lead to the entire CASS mark being discounted and only an
         exam mark counting for the candidate.

        Learners must be able to secure interview time with educators, should they need to
         improve upon their marks in the course of the year.

        Parents of learners must be kept informed of learners' progress.

        Educators must ensure that every set of assessment marks is carefully recorded and
         placed in a file for access.

        Department officials will be visiting the schools from time to time to monitor the progress
         of the learners.

6.   Composition of the School based assessment mark
     The weightings with respect to Preparatory examination (20%), Controlled tests (20%) and
     Portfolio (60%) must remain the same in all subjects. A way of combining these
     components is illustrated below. As each subject differs from one another, the suggested
     weighting of the Portfolio may change, but the above methods of assessment should be
     adhered to.
     Combining the three components Preparatory examination (20%), Controlled tests
     (20%) and Portfolio mark (60%) to form the final school based assessment mark is
     shown below:

7.    Guidelines for Woodwork portfolio

      The following document shows examples that are applicable to Woodwork only. The
      subject of Woodwork lends itself to the compilation of excellent portfolios.

      The content of the Woodwork portfolios should consist of a theory, a practical and a
      drawing component.

      The teacher must be able to ensure that the work used in the portfolio is the pupils – it is
      therefore probably advisable to only use work that the educator has supervised.

      When marking homework drawings the learners are required to complete the full drawing.
      The educator may then decide what aspect of the drawing he intends marking.


7.1   Requirements : An example of a Woodwork Portfolio S.G.

7.1.1 Class work and homework drawings (minimum requirements)

      It is expected from the learners to complete a minimum of 20 drawings (class and
      homework) during the year. The syllabus is subdivided as follows:

         Printing, dimensioning, types of lines, scale

         Planning and layout of a drawing.

         Constructions

         Projection concepts and elements.

         Isometric freehand/instruments – Exploded.

         First angle orthographic freehand/instruments.

         Third angle orthographic freehand/instruments.

         Auxiliary

         Sectional views

7.1.2 Theory

       The Theory Book in the senior phase is not to be a rewriting of the textbook but should
       incorporate :

      Practical process
      Sketches
      Applications
      Functions and uses of machines and hand tools

       The theoretical contents of woodwork consist of many topics that can be selected
       from the subject matter to compile a portfolio.

       The natural extension of theory is to relate it to the workshops

7.1.2.1 Each learner receives a piece of timber and the following instructions:

      Identify the wood according to colour, odour, annual rings, medullary rays, working
       properties, uses and finishing.

          o   Safety measures
          o   Adjustments
          o   Fault identification
          o   The planning, turning, sawing, sanding of the wood supplied.
      The learner should know the following about the hand tools that he will be tested on :

          o Correct use of the tool
          o Proper care of the machine
          o Competence / skill of learner
      Construction of Woodwork joints :
          o Measuring tools
          o Theoretical knowledge of application

      o      use a small log
      o      use the machines in the workshop
      o      visit a saw mill (report back)

     Marketable forms and grading of wood :

      o      cutting up in different forms
      o      grading done by learners

     Hard and Soft wood trees identified at school :

      o      Compare characteristics
      o      Collect/compare/display leaves, seeds, bark etc.
