  10. To Use Portfolios: • Collect work samples • Photos • Sound /video recordings

  11. Using Portfolios • Label everything with name, date, domain or reason for inclusion.

  12. Using Checklists: • Do not compare children • Do not use for screening or diagnosis

  13. To Use Checklists: • Use research-based instruments (like High-Scope, Work Sampling, Creative Curriculum, or Ages & Stages) OR…
