Standards Based Learning

Our elementary schools are in the process of transitioning to a standards-based report card. Our kindergarteners were exposed to a standards-based report card during the 16-17 school year. Our 1st graders will have a new standards-based report card for the 17-18 school year. Subsequent grades will follow. 
 
Our elementary standards-based report card allows parents, students and teachers to monitor student growth while also receiving specific feedback focused on standard aligned learning targets. Student growth is valued through this model. The learning targets on the elementary report cards were determined by district teachers as the most important learning that students need to master in order to be successful in the following grade level. 
 
When we report student learning in our standards-based system, the following terms are used when communicating progress toward the learning targets: 4 (Exceeds Standard--Demonstrates a deeper level of knowledge, understanding and overall application of the standard.), 3 (Meets Standard--Demonstrates a consistent understanding and knowledge base of the standard. With limited errors, student is able to grasp and apply key concepts, processes, and skills.), 2 (Approaching Standard--Demonstrates progress toward the standard, but not yet achieved it. Demonstrates some understanding and knowledge.), 1 (Limited Progress--Shows no or minimal progress toward the standard. Additional support is needed for the student to develop understanding and knowledge.).
