Standards-Based Report Cards Glynn County Schools 1 st -3 rd Grades
Why a New Reporting System? To provide more specific information to students, parents and teachers To plan individual learning lessons which address grade- level expectations not yet mastered
Example of a Traditional Report Card Reading – S or 93 Math – N or 78 Science – S or 84 Social Studies – S or 82 What does this tell you about a childs learning?
What are Grade-Level Expectations? Skills that a child will be able to demonstrate by the end of the school year
Where did the grade-level expectations originate? From the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS)
How will the GPS be used? Teachers will have a standards checklist based on grade level expectations Teachers will utilize these expectations to guide instruction These grade-level expectations will be included on the newly designed report cards
Example of a Standards Checklist First Nine WeeksReading Applies knowledge of letter- sound correspondence and spelling patterns ELA2R1a,b,d,g Demonstrates the ability to read orally with speed, accuracy, and expression ELA2R2 a,b,e Aquire and use grade-level words to communicate effectively ELA2R3 a,b,e Uses a variety of strategies to gain meaning from grade level text ELA2R4b,c,e,h,I,j,k,l,n Task 1 Task 2 Task 3 Task 4 Task 1 Task 2 Task 3 Task 4 Task 1 Task 2 Task 3 Task 4 Task 1 Task 2 Task 3 Task 4 Student Name 8/14 Doe, Jane (example) P
Key for Grading Grade Status Scale Performance Level Descriptors : Grades reflect assessments per term (not averages) (E) Exemplary The Student has demonstrated consistently the required knowledge and skills of the standards. Achievement is exemplary. On a traditional report card, E would translate to an A. (M) Meets The Student has demonstrated most of the required knowledge and skills. Achievement meets the standards. On a traditional report card, M would translate to a B.
Key for Grading (P) Progress The Student has demonstrated some of the required knowledge and skills. Achievement is progressing toward the standards. On a traditional report card, P would translate to a C. (N) Not Meeting Standards The Student has not demonstrated the required knowledge and skills of the standards. Extensive remediated is required. On a traditional report card, N would translate to an F. (*) Not Assessed On the report card, standards indicated with an asterisk will be standards not yet assessed during this term. However, a grade will be given by the end of the year.
Grading Student Work Graded papers will look different when they come home. The teacher will score the assignment with the number of problems correct on the top and total number of total items on the bottom with teacher comments. Example: 8 (number correct) 10 (total number of items)
A parents essential question will change… From: What grade did you get? To: What have you learned and how does this relate to grade- level expectations?
