Our report cards are standards based meaning that they are reporting on where your child is in their mastery of concepts. Traditional report card grades are more commonly determined by work completed and not necessarily the student’s understanding levels in particular content areas. Instead of letter grades (A, B, C, D, F) our standards based grading is communicated using a continuum of mastery. We use a scale of 1-4. A “1” indicates that students have little understanding of a concept, and therefore cannot demonstrate any mastery of it. As students learn and progress, they may demonstrate partial mastery, and score a “2” meaning they are approaching mastery. Once they meet a target, they score a “3” noting they are proficient. The “4’s” are reserved for students who exceed the learning target. If you see an “X” on the report card that means the concept was not yet taught and/or assessed. Also keep in mind that many of the concepts included in the report card are taught throughout the year. If your child scores a 1 or 2 at the beginning of the year, that is to be expected because most likely the material is new to them. As the year progresses, they will continue to learn and grow and move closer to mastery.
During distance learning many of the ways we communicate and share information with you has changed - including how you will receive and view report cards. The marking period ended on Friday, October 30th and teachers have been taking time to carefully assess your child’s learning, thoughtfully write comments and complete report cards. These report cards will be available to you on Monday, November 16th via the Aeries Portal.
