    Abstract

    This research study explores the characteristics of the portfolio as an instrument for highly-skilled immigrants to facilitate the identification, assessment and recognition of their actual competencies in order to define guidelines for portfolio design and implementation. The two research questions that guided the research process are: 1. What are the characteristics of the portfolio instrument and its use by highly-skilled immigrants that facilitate the identification, assessment and recognition of their actual competencies? 2. What are the characteristics of portfolio design and implementation that enhance the acceptability and prospective use of the portfolio instrument in the current evaluation and recognition practice?
