    Abstract

    The purpose of this study is to explore views of prep-school students towards portfolio assessment in their writing courses. It has also intended to find out exam preference of the participants. The participants of the study are 140 Turkish EFL students enrolled in the intermediate and upper intermediate prep classes at the School of Foreign Languages of Anadolu University. A portfolio attitude survey, semi-structured interviews with the participants and their instructors, and two open ended questions form the basis of the study. The results indicated that the subjects of this study generally prefer to be evaluated by the traditional paper and pencil tests; however, most of the subjects believe that portfolio assessment also contributes to their English learning processes. It was also found out that a number of the subjects have negative attitudes towards portfolio assessment in their writing courses.
