Standards-Based Report CardsConnecting Instruction to Assessment



Why the change?

  • All planning and instruction should be aligned with

    the standards

  • Need to assess end of grade mastery of standards

  • New MA Curriculum Frameworks for Math and English Language Arts, and Literacy in the History/Social Studies, Science, and Technical Subjects.

  • Our current elementary report card is 26 years old.

  • There is strong agreement, at all grade levels, that our instructional practices, our knowledge of how students learn and how we assess that learning is not reflected in the current reporting system.

  • Our current reporting system does not align to those standards in a way that is meaningful and easily explainable.

Traditional to Standards - Based

  • Traditional

    - Test and quiz grades

    - Homework completion

    - In-class assignments

    - Work samples

    - Average of grades

  • Standards – Based

    - What students have learned and how they have

    demonstrated that learning based on mastery

    of state curriculum standards.

    - Aligns grading practices with the content


    - Student growth is measured on a continuum.

Charge to the Committee was to develop:

  • A reporting system that provides consistency between teachers and classes.

  • A reporting system that aligns with the state standards

  • A provides clear information to parents on students’ progress over time regarding proficiency of standards.

Charge to the Committee was to develop:

  • A system that reports growth in a meaningful, fair, timely, and objective manner.

  • A system that provides student awareness of their own learning and strengths and weaknesses

  • Utilize current available technology to support the reporting system.


  • Establish Report Card Committee representing all schools and all grade levels in Sept. 2009.

  • Research and examined existing SBR from other districts.

  • Focus discussions on Social Expectations, English/Language Arts and Math Standards

  • Include focus on Technology Learning Skills.

Today’s goals:

  • To provide you with an overview of the new

    Standards Based Reporting System.

  • To share the thinking and rationale about the need

    to change to the new system.

  • To give you an opportunity to ask questions and

    share your insights.

Next Steps?

  • Principals will share the learning rubrics and Standards Based Report Cards with their School Councils

  • Parent meetings will be held at each elementary school to provide an overview of the new reporting system and to gain input, welcome suggestions, and answer questions.

  • Birch Meadow – Wed. April 6th 7:00 p.m.

  • Killam – Tues. April 26th 7:00 p.m.

  • Eaton, Mon. May 2nd 7:00 p.m.

  • Barrows, Tues. May 10th 7:00 p.m.

  • Wood End, Wed. May 11 7:00 p.m.

Next steps:

  • The Report Card Committee welcomes your feedback and suggestions regarding both the learning rubrics and SBR.

  • Drafts of the SBR will be created by the technology staff utilizing your input and suggestions

  • Develop plans/timeline for professional development and training for the end of this year, summer, and the start of next year.

Next steps:

  • Implement new reporting system pilot Nov. 2011

  • Continue meetings of Report Card Committee in 2011-12.

  • Revise SBR to include Common Core Standards and Technology standards by 2013.
