2How the new report card was created? A report card committee was formed.Committee members selected the most appropriate method for grading by developing new criteria that is consistent across grade levelsDeveloped a standards-based report card using Chatham Elementary School’s template and other resources to incorporate the Massachusetts Common Core Standards
3Traditional vs. Standard Based Report Card Traditional Report CardStandards-based Report CardStudents were assessed in each subject area on skills taught.Students receive multiple grades because the subject areas have been broken into broad categories that encompass the standards students are learningPerformance criteria were different in each grade level and based on a different grading system.Students receive grades based on numeric level.
4Similarities Traditional vs. Standard Based Report Card Students’ grades are representative of the student’s progress at the time the teacher marks the report card. Teachers consider the most current assessment data in determining grades.Students still receive grades on effort and work habits.
5Common Core Standards Based Report Card If Monomoy included all Common Core standards on the report card, it would be quite lengthy and not user-friendly for parents.Instead, Monomoy correlated everything taught in our curriculum to standards for reporting to parents.The progress report standards are the same for all grade levels, K-4.
