The Focused Portfolios instruction is an Authentic Assessment Process in which early childhood professionals learn to carefully observe children ages birth through five in their everyday interactions. This process results in compiling a comprehensive portfolio that captures each child's learning through these careful observations and relates the child's development to recognized milestones. Other states have also implemented authentic documentation as a vital step to continuous quality improvement and to meet licensure/accreditation requirements.
