[OFF] Teaching: portfolios?

[I'm hoping this is at least minimally appropriate for ADS-L, as a number
of people on the list teach courses similar to the one I'm asking about.]

This semester, it turned out that many students in my 200-level Language
in Society class are seniors, postgraduates pursuing a second degree, or
nontraditional students. Instead of the fairly structured requirements I
had planned (in-class quizzes) I'd like to ask them to do something more
meaningful, so I'm wondering about having them assemble portfolios. I've
never tried that before. Does anyone have any words of advice, especially
on guidelines to provide and how to grade them?

[Apologies for cross-postings.]
