The aims of this research were to determine, by means of both the literature review and the empirical research, the experiences secondary school learners have in the compilation of their learning portfolios and the influence this compilation of the portfolios has on their perceptions of their efficacy; and to make suggestions for the continued use of the portfolio in developing interests of learners. The sample for this study consisted of 744 learners studying Mathematics and Science. The study revealed that learning portfolios are highly influential in developing self-evaluating and self-reflecting learners with high estimations of their own efficacy. The study recommends that schools should develop an inclusive and collaborative approach in their implementation of learning portfolios so that even those learners who expressed negative attitudes towards them can be accommodated.
