Focused Portfolios™ is an Authentic Assessment Process in which children are carefully observed in their everyday interactions by professionals serving children from birth through age five. This process results in the compilation of a comprehensive portfolio that captures a child's learning through observation and relates the child's development to recognized milestones. Adopted by the New Mexico Department of Children, Youth and Families and widely used in the state of Oklahoma.
Used in child care settings all over the US and Canada to meet licensure/accreditation requirements.
