SB Report Cards

[youtube width="525" height="419"][/youtube]



Report cards at Lone Oak Elementary Schoolreport student progress toward specific standards (Kentucky Common Core Standards), instead of letter grades.Teachers collaborated to create rubrics to determine whether students are making no progress, making progress, meeting standards, or above the standards that will help them continue to the next grade level.


A standards-based report card lists the most important skills students should learn in each subject at a particular grade level.

Instead of letter grades, students receive marks (See below) that show how well they have mastered the skills. The marks might show whether the student is consistently beyond grade level expectations, meeting, showing progress but not meeting or showing little or no progress. 


EP = Excellent Progress:                                  Demonstrates a complete understanding of concepts and skills.Independently applies
                                                                                  skills with consistent accuracy with  no explanation after introduction.

SP = Steady Progress:                                        Demonstrates a basic understanding of concepts and skills. Applies skills
                                                                                   with minimal assistance.

PA = Progressing with Assistance                   Demonstrates  and  applies skills
                                                                                  only with additional/supplemental instruction.

TBC=To Be Covered:                                        Curriculum will be covered next grading period


On many traditional report cards, students receive one grade for reading, one for math, one for science and so on. On a standards-based report card, each of these subject areas is divided into a list of skills and knowledge that students are responsible for learning. Students receive a separate mark for each standard.


The marks on a standards-based report card are different from traditional letter grades. Letter grades are often calculated by combining how well the student met his particular teacher's expectations, how he performed on assignments and tests, and how much effort the teacher believes he put in.  Letter grades do not tell parents which skills their children have mastered or whether they are working at grade level.  Because one fourth-grade teacher might be reviewing reading out loud accurately, while another is teaching reading for comprehension, getting an A in each of these classes would mean very different things. The parent of a child in these classes would not know if the child were learning what he should be to meet the state grade level expectations (standards).


Standards-based report cards should provide more consistency between teachers than traditional report cards, because all students are evaluated on the same grade-appropriate skills.  Parents can see exactly which skills and knowledge their children have learned.
