This study aims to determine the implementation of portfolio assessment in history learning at SMAN 1 Mawasangka Tengah and SMA Negeri 2 Mawasangka Tengah, Southeast Sulawesi Province. This research uses a qualitative approach with a case study method. The research subjects were history teachers and class XI Social Sciences students at both schools. Data were collected through observation, interviews, and documentation. Data were analyzed using data reduction techniques, data presentation, and conclusions. The study results show that the implementation of portfolio assessment in history learning in both schools is still not optimal. That is caused by several factors, including the teacher's lack of understanding of the concepts and procedures for portfolio assessment, the lack of teacher skills in preparing portfolio assessment instruments, the lack of supporting facilities and infrastructure, and the lack of motivation and participation of students in making portfolios. This study recommends that teachers improve their professional competence in carrying out portfolio assessments, develop portfolio assessment instruments following graduate competency standards, provide adequate facilities and infrastructure, and provide effective guidance and feedback to students in making portfolios.
