This paper presents findings from a study that utilized students’ portfolio entries to provide initial insights into students’ views about portfolio assessment. Two Fijian Year 9 mathematics teachers implemented portfolios as a means of assessing student learning for the topic 'Measurement'. While students in one teacher's class had noted advantages in terms of learning new content and skills, their difficulties with portfolio assessment were often bounded by various mathematical content. Students in the other teacher's class provided insight into their perspectives on value of portfolio assessment. Apart from stating the various areas of content, which they either liked or disliked, students in the latter class pointed out many other benefits of portfolio assessment.
