Dear Ticia,

Sorry I am so late answering your request, but I have been on vacation. A
new publication which should be able to answer a lot of your questions has
been issued here in California. Called "Into the Portfolio Process: A
Handbook for Student Assessment", it was developed by the California Art
Education Association and is published by the Butte County Office of
Education. For information, you can call 916-538-7231. The cost is $15.50,
including tax and shipping, and can be ordered from the following address:

Butte County Office of Education
Instructional Resources Center
5 County Center Drive
Oroville, CA 95965

Hope this will be of help to you.
