standards based report cards
Standards -Based Report Cards
  • Teams of Rockdale County teachers along with the guidance and support of school administrators and the Curriculum and Instruction Division have developed standards-based report cards for Grades K-5. The primary purpose of these report cards is to communicate the achievement status of student progress toward mastery of standards at specific points in the year.
con t
Con’t
  • These report cards are designed to provide parents with specific, accurate, fair, and useful information about their child’s progress in school. Each quarter, students have multiple opportunities to practice, attain, and demonstrate mastery of the Rockdale County Curriculum Standards. Based on évidence gathered through assessments designed at both the district and classroom levels, teachers are able to evaluate the level of progress students are making toward mastery.
performance level descriptors
Performance Level Descriptors
  • The standard-based report card uses numerical indicators of student performance to indicate progress on the grade level standards each quarter.
what do these descriptions mean
What Do These Descriptions Mean?
  • A score of 3 means that the student is able to consistently demonstrate mastery of the learning goal.
  • A score of 2 often means that the student can sometimes demonstrate the learning goal, but he/she is inconsistent and or may need significant teacher assistance to reach the goal.
  • A score of 1 indicates that the student is generally unable to demonstrate the learning goal even with much assistance and guidance.
  • A score of 4 indicates that the student is able to independently and consistently demonstrate the learning goal AND that the student is able to go significantly beyond the expected level of performance.
how does a teacher grade a child s performance
How Does a teacher grade A Child’s Performance?
  • Using the Georgia Performance Standards as a guide, teacher committees establish curriculum

priorities for each grading period. Quarterly scoring guides provide teachers with clear and consistent

learning expectations. Educational research tells us that effective assessment of student progress

must be balanced in terms of format and frequency. No one assessment experience can reliably and

accurately measure student progress on a particular standard. Therefore, teachers design

multiple assessment tasks and collect evidence of student learning throughout the grading period.

This evidence may include tests, quizzes, teacher observations, projects, district, state and national

assessments, and student work samples. Teachers review these assessments for evidence of mastery of learning when marking student progress for the report card.

CJ Hicks Elementary School Science & Math Achievers Reaching Their Highest Aspirations

“Engineering a World of Health”

School-wide Science Day Student Project Requirements

1. All students must enter only ONE project into the school-wide fair.

2. Select a topic with your child, then sign and return the Science Project Approval Form to your child’s teacher before August 23, 2010.

3. Projects can be in any branch of science but we are encouraging students to identify their project as having to do with one of the following domains of science: Life, Physical or Earth Science related to this year’s theme: “Engineering a World of Good Health”.

4. Grades PreK-2, the project must have a title, brief description of the exhibit, and/or a brief description of the results of the experiment. The attached sheet “How to Display a Science Project provides a sample of how to present the project.

5. Grades 3-5, must follow the scientific method and include a purpose, hypothesis, procedure, and conclusion. The attached sheet “How to Display a Science Project provides a sample of how to present the project.

6. All projects must be on a Tri-Fold board 36"(h) X 48" (w).

slide8

7. Projects must be delivered to school by October 15, 2010.

8. Mark your Calendar! We will celebrate National Science and Engineering Week Oct. 28th and 29th.

9. During Science Day, students will be expected to stand by their project and demonstrate, and or answer questions about their research and project.

10. All projects must be completed at home under parent supervision.

slide9

Safety Guidelines

Please remember that many children will view each project. Please keep safety and appropriateness in mind.

1. No liquids or glass.

2. Safety goggles should be used if appropriate.

3. A safety shield or safe distance should be used if appropriate for the experiment. Take pictures of the experiment or draw a diagram to show your experiment or findings.

4. If you are growing crystals please ensure that they are not poisonous.

5. Open flames, live animals, live electrical current, blood or bacteria, or hazardous materials are not permitted.

Single Gender Classes
  • Every student has the ability to learn, but there is a huge difference in the best ways to teach the genders (Leonard Sax, ).
  • “Scientists have known for years that there are structural and developmental as well as performance differences between male and female brains.
  • MRIs, for instance, indicate that males and females use different areas of their brains when accomplishing similar tasks”

Sousa, How the Brain Learns, 2006

what is the writing assessment
What is the Writing Assessment?
  • The writing assessment for grade five consists of an evaluation of each student response to an assigned prompt. Students are assigned a topic from a prompt bank representing three genres: narrative, informational, and persuasive. Students are allowed approximately 120 minutes to write their essays. The writing assessment must be administered in one day.
writing assessment continued
Writing Assessment Continued…
  • The Georgia Grade 5 Writing Assessment is a test of narrative, informational and persuasive writing. Students will be given either an informational, persuasive, or narrative writing topic. Because topics will be spiraled, students may receive any one of the three writing topics thus requiring them to be prepared to write in informational, narrative, and persuasive genres.
