Design considerations

Design Considerations

  • Years & Terms

    • Semester – Trimester – Quarters

  • Landscape vs. Portrait

    • More space for standard text (65)

    • Larger Font- Landscape

  • Headers vs. Standards

  • Graded or not

  • Shading

  • Lines

    • Gray Boxes

  • Code vs. Text (Code & Text)

    • ^(*;02.LA.01)

    • You or someone else

  • Location location location


    The subliminal message do you send to your community by the placement of your subjects?

    UPPER RIGHT of page #1 is BOARDWALK

    Summative student records

    Summative - Student Records

    All comments- 1 report card in Student Record Folder

    Better Identifier??



    Stay inside the lines

    Teachers will write TOO MUCH!

    Set Max Width to keep text in the box

    SOMEONE must inform teachers of character max count!

    Version 7.03

    Comment Length can be set at the District-List Standards-for all your comment standards

    Content specific comments

    Content Specific Comments

    • Typically reserved for MS Level

    • Requires considerably more Real Estate

    • If space is not available, tech team must change code as needed


    Do elementary PE Teachers write comments?

    To stay within lines Max Width needs to be set for each comment area.

    Object Reports – FIXED BOUNDARIES

    ReportWorks – Dynamic

    Attendance codes chasing ghosts

    Attendance Codes & Chasing Ghosts


    Chasing attendance ghosts

    Chasing Attendance Ghosts


    Check Code to Day Conversion Values

    “sometimes” the EOY process does copy these values from last year and you’ll find this page blank!


    Check Transfer Info for FTEid Value

    If Full-Time Equivalency can be BLANK especially if you IMPORT new students and forget to bring in that value

    Which code to use what will it display

    Which code to use/what will it display?

    ^(*std.stored.high;ELA.5.1;T1;2010) = highest stored grade for standard T1, 2010

    ^(*std.stored.num;ELA.5.1;T1;11) = average stored grade for standard T1 in Grade 11

    ^(*std.stored.transavg;ELA.5.1;T1) = stored number grade for standard T1

    ^(*std.transhigh;ELA.5.1) = stored number grade for standard


    Not assessed this term strategies

    = Not Assessed This Term – Strategies!

    Teachers will have to either:1) leave standard blank

    2) select a conversion scale choice of NA

    3) All standards will be seen by teacher even if correct term is selected – no element refers to term ID UNLESS someone changes the Enable selection

    Not Recommended as this will be a repeatable labor cost

    Be on the same page key assessments

    BE ON THE SAME PAGE Key/Assessments

    Avoid confusion with homebound papers: Curriculum/Admin issue NOT Technical!

    Sending Home Letter Grades and Percentages will confuse Parents and Students

    Multi page reports

    Multi-page Reports

    Duplex Printers - Stapler

    Name of student on each odd #’d page!

    21 st century effort habits of mind essential skills for learning social demeanor

    21st Century EffortHabits of MindEssential Skills for LearningSocial Demeanor

    Elementary – One teacher – all subjects

    Middle School – Multiple teachers – individual subjects

    Standard for each, spacing code is significant for the section below

    Not dynamic space for everything

    Not Dynamic – space for everything

    Have admin consider limiting standards in each content area!

    Battlegrounds between core academics and special subjects

    Generic Standards for all Performance Groups (BCO) and Foreign Language (F,S,C,L)

    G et R e a dyto R umble!

    Strategy – Less standards if

    Class doesn’t meet daily

    Corrections on screen or print

    Corrections on screen or print?

    Create a comment only report for teachers rather than printing entire report cards

    Sample available on DERO Technical Website- Report Cards!

    So what about reportworks

    So what about ReportWorks?

    • ReportWorks is a next-generation custom report development solution:

    • latest version to handle grades and attendance

    • delivering all the benefits of anywhere, anytime web-based access

    • feature-rich environment rivaling the capabilities of third party reporting apps

    • meets the needs of experienced report developers and beginners

    • files listing standards grades are available, however; sharable traditional report card resources limited at this time

    Can I convert my Object Reports?

    Reportworks vs object reports

    ReportWorksvs. Object Reports

    Object Reports are based upon legacy code that is not compatible with ReportWorks!

    My Best Guess

    Q: Are Object Reports going away?

    A: Not anytime soon, $$$$ and time ( 5-8 years – MAYBE!)

    Q: If I need a report card for this fall, recommendation?

    A: Go with what you know, no experience – contract

    Q: Are you planning to create them with ReportWorks?

    A: NO, as I prefer to teach clients remotely and find it far more difficult to teach REMOTELY. Personal Choice

    Q: I have a funky schedule with lots of options for student, what would you use?

    A: ReportWorks is dynamic referencing the CC table

    Report tools for the future

    Report Tools for the Future?

    What is your Best Guess?

    • Traditional – Handwritten

    • Traditional – Electronic

    • Standards

      • Anchor Standards

      • Common Core

      • Rubric Assessments by Term

      • Graphical Progress on Standards

    • Online/Web-based

    • Push Technology

    • Audio

    • Video

    • Cumulative K-12 with yearly progress on Graduation

    • Local/State and National Comparisons

    Caution with numbers too

    Exciting feature, but!

    If a tab measurement contained a portion of the identifier or visa versa, use punctuation to help delineate the difference!

    Cautions with numbers too! (Grade levels and code tabs)

    Oracle Sequencing Error

    Oracle handles page numbers as text fields and has trouble sequencing object reports greater than 9 pages. A sequence error will occur on your print outs... page 10 will be printed as the 2nd page - page 11 as the 3rd page. Work-Around is to re-order your pages in the file. In my 12 page example which prints as 1, 10, 11, 12, 2-9.

    I had place ELA as the 10th page as client wanted it printed second. Math became the 11th page and so on. Email me if you have any questions

    Of course if your report ( standard-based report cards is less than 10 pages, you have nothing to worry about!
