Elementary Report Card

August 2013


Brief Background of K-5 Report Cards

  • Manual completion of report cards

  • Changes accommodated as possible

  • Confusion on how to mark cards:

    • Reading

    • Writing

    • Test scores or not?

  • Clumsy to manage


Report Card (RC) Committee Process

  • Committee make-up and work:

    • Principals

    • Teacher representation across grades/buildings

    • Instruction Dept. members

    • Technology Services Dept. members

    • Worked through 2012-13

  • Identified goals & charge of the committee

  • Established beliefs

  • Processed input to develop a mock-up


Report Card Goals

  • Update our Current K-5 Report Cards

  • Interface our Cards with PowerSchool

  • Develop and Implement a Staff and parent Readiness Plan

  • Support and Monitor Implementation


RC- We believe grading should:

  • Be About Achievement

  • Be About Monitoring Progress

  • Be Based on General and Specific Standards

  • Be About Mastery Learning

  • Be Based on Outcomes

  • Be Based on Products and Process

  • Be About Some Things as Opposed to Many Things

  • Include Criterion Referenced Assessments

  • Weight Assignments and Assessments Differently


RC- We believe the purpose of report cards is to:

  • Provide an Avenue for Communication

  • Reflect What We Teach and Student Learning

  • Relate Student Progress on a Learning Continuum

  • Be Simplistic and Require Little Clarification


Developed cards that represent:

  • a focus on the Common Core State Standards (CCSS)

  • a standards-based approach to grading


Where we are in our process:

  • Introducing the grade book to teachers

  • Supporting teachers with shift to standards-based grading

  • Addressing needs of UA

  • Working through a timeline for full implementation of parent portal

  • Working through logistics of report card distribution during the transition period


Next Steps

  • Professional Development

    • Teacher-to-teacher PD

    • Building Coaches identified and trained

    • Instructional Specialists also trained

  • Hands-on time

  • Embedded PD through the school year


Plans for Today

  • Explore the meaning of standards-based grading

  • Look at PowerTeacher grade books for BPS

  • Align an assignment to standards

    • Enter an assignment in Power Teacher

    • Enter student performance on the assignment in Power Teacher


Standards Based Grading

I think Standards Based Grading is…


A Grading Activity


Determining a Final Grade


Why Shift…

Grades should have meaning

We need to challenge the status quo – The student should be able to say “Do I know this? Can I do this?”

Standards Based Grading reduces meaningless paperwork

SBG helps teachers adjust instruction

SBG teaches what quality looks like
