FIRST and THIRD QUARTER PROGRESS REPORT

 

Progress Report v. Narrative Report Card:

Our First and Third Quarter ‘Progress Reports’ are intended to inform parents of their child’s academic status at the half-way point of the First and Second Semester.  Working in combination with Schoology and Student-Led Conferences, these Progress Reports give parents in-time information and allow for corrective action (should such action be required) during the remainder of the Semester.  More extensive ‘Narrative Report Cards’ will be provided later, at the end of the Semester.  Narratives will provide information about student achievement around specific learning standards, study habits as well as noncognitive skills such as motivation, perseverance and determination.  Narratives will also include “H,” “P”, “N”, “U” letter grades and text tailored to your child’s learning profile. Narratives are part of a student’s permanent record.

Grading Scale:

Highly Performing – Students that receive a “highly performing” assessment are producing work that is above his/her grade level.  They are either putting in extra effort to go above and beyond expectations, or are demonstrating a skill/knowledge level that is above teacher expectations.

Proficient – If a student is “proficient” s/he is performing and producing work that is at grade level.  If a student is demonstrating proficiency at a skill or with respect to acquiring certain knowledge s/he is “right where they are supposed to be.”

Nearing Proficiency – If a student receives an “N” for nearing proficiency s/he is approaching proficiency but is not quite there yet.  It could be that s/he has not put in the requisite effort or that s/he needs a bit more time and/or instruction to master the content.

Underperforming – If a student receives a “U” for underperforming the work is either nonexistent or completely insufficient or s/he needs substantial intervention to work towards the target proficiency goal.  The progress report should describe with specificity the plan for this student moving forward.

An asterisk (*) after the letter grade represents modified curriculum appropriate for the student’s current performance level (e.g. H*).
