Example of a report card
In the fall of 2013 we rolled out a revision to our existing standards based report card. This revised report card better reflects the common core state standards for ELA and mathematics. It also improved the synchronization with our adopted curriculum in ELA, math, science and social studies. Finally, it provided an opportunity for us to change the marking scale to reflect a 5 point performance level descriptor instead of the existing 4 point scale.
This was done to align with the PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) performance level descriptors. (PARCC is a consortium of states that developed our new K-12 state common assessments.) This work is a positiveProf. Various formats are used including letter grades, numbers, checklists and teacher comments that indicate how a child is performing in different areas.
For each report card period, teachers usually write descriptive comments for every student. If only negative statements are written, the parent may feel overwhelmed and thus be unable to help their child. The block will expire shortly after those requests stop.

As a teacher, it is our duty to be truthful, but we also need to be tactful. A committee of parents, teachers and administrators worked to improve our reporting system. The goal was to provide a communication tool which accurately reports what each student knows and is able to do, as well as, provide information on what students will be learning next.
