MAIN CONTENT OF PORTFOLIO
In Denmark, a distinction is often made between general and specific types of competence assessment:
■ A general or divergent assessment aims to identify all competences mastered by the individual. The focus of the process is for the person to clarify and describe all of his/her prior learning in order to identify future choices of job and education. Often, the process will follow a formative learning approach. Example of approache include My Competence Portfolio: www.minkompetencemappe.dk
■ A specific or convergent assessment aims to identify which of the individuals’ competences are relevant in relation to the standards of a specific qualification. This can be carried out after a broad assessment. An example of approach for technical professions and qualifications is the Misc. IT test tools, i.a. http://www.knowentia.com/
Most tools include self-assessments during which the individual is to grade his/her experience, knowledge or competences on a scale typically ranging from 1 to 6. Often, the individuals themselves describe their competences. In other instances, the competences have been described in advance, and the individuals are merely required to assess their competences on a certain scale.
Documentation through self-assessment enables individuals to reflect on their own competences and makes it possible to describe them in a systematic way.
