Abstract

© 2015 Universidad Complutense de Madrid. All rights reserved. The aim of this paper is to present a teaching experience with the portfolio as a competence-based instrument of assessment in translator training. Details are given of the context in which the experience was carried out, the structure of the portfolio and how the assessment was organized. With this experience it was observed that the use of the portfolio mobilizes different skills and types of learning, promotes organization, meaningful learning and self-regulation, and makes the student aware of what he has learned and what he needs to improve. However, the portfolio involves a great workload for both the student and the teacher, therefore it is necessary to provide detailed instructions and assessment criteria, and devote some sessions to its supervision.
