Helsinki is now introducing portfolio pedagogy where the evaluation focuses more on the pupil’s performance in discussions, ability to reflect on what the pupil has learned, and skills to put the knowledge into action. According to this form of pedagogy, the pupil will receive in addition to the grade an attachment with the portfolio where an evaluation of the level of knowledge and the development is described. The portfolio pedagogy evaluation is implemented in all of Helsinki’s primary schools from the start of the Autumn 2018. The method will give a more versatile evaluation of the pupil’s knowledge and skills, and form an excellent start for the pupil’s necessary lifelong learning. Source: HBL
