    Standards-Based Report Cards

     Teachers, schools, and entire districts have put their faith in standards-based grading, an innovative, albeit complex and sometimes controversial, method that aims to make grades more meaningful. A standards-based report card contains an overall grade for each course .  As well, while traditional end-of-course grades are the final products of many factors, including quizzes, homework, behavior, and attendance, with standards-based grading nothing but mastery matters. Standards-based grades account for nonacademic elements very minimally or not at all. This article describes how standards-based grading works and discusses some pros and cons regarding the controversial method

    Standards-based report card:
    A standards-based report card lists the most important skills students should learn in each subject at a particular grade level. For example, in writing, a second-grade report card might list these skills:

    Writes in complete sentences
    Uses capital letters, periods, question marks and quotation marks correctly
    Uses the writing process (prewriting, first draft, revision, and final draft)
    Writes a friendly letter with a greeting, body and conclusion


    The marks might show whether the student is advanced, proficient, basic or below basic for each standard or they might be numbers representing whether students meet, exceed or approach each standard. Students usually get separate marks for effort and work habits, which are important for parents to keep tabs on even if these characteristics aren't included in the assessment of the student's academic skills. You can go here teacherease.com for more more information.


    Standards-based report cards different from traditional report cards:

    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 basic multiplication facts, while another is teaching multiplication of two- or three-digit numbers, 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 standards.
