Home-School Communication

The purpose of a report card…

K-9 REPORT CARD

  • is to provide an accurate interpretation of your child’s achievement on graded curriculum.

Key Features of the Report Card

 Focuses on the ‘how’ of learning,

not just the ‘what’

K-9 REPORT CARD

Assessment

4

Students demonstrate their learning: by

doing, saying, making and writing (drawing)

3

Teachers notice students’ learning:

observing students, discussing with students, examining students’ products

Teachers use a variety of methods for recording

what they identify about students’ learning


“All of the individual pieces of evidence are considered as teachers apply their professional judgment to determine which indicator on the report card is most appropriate.”

David Harvey


What are the Indicators & Descriptors?

  • Indicators are achievement levels that show growth along a continuum.

  • Descriptors provide an explanation of the indicators.

Comments

Teachers use comments to:

  • Articulate other relevant information.


Many outcomes cannot be assessed using traditional tests. For example:

The curriculum-based report card is an effective tool because:

  • it provides information that supports students’ learning;

  • it connects directly to the Alberta Education Programs of Study;

  • it is aligned with best practices in assessment.

What to Expect

Teachers and schools will continue to engage in conversations with parents as we assist them in understanding the new report card.  These conversations may include:

  • Grade level parent sessions

  • Meet the Teacher night

  • After school “coffee & cookie” conversations
