WPS K-5 Standards Based Report Card

Reporting Student Progress

Reporting on the progress students are making in the classroom is an ongoing practice. There are four formal reporting periods during the year; two parent-teacher conferences which take place in the fall and spring, and two written report cards issued in January and June.

Beginning in SY19-20, all elementary schools will implement a standards based report card (SBRC).  The purpose of the SBRC is to clearly communicate student progress and performance towards Massachusetts’ grade-level standards and expectations to students and families. The SBRC ensures that student learning is measured against a consistent set of academic criteria. Students are assessed using end-of-year grade-level expectations. They will receive an indication of their performance as outlined in the chart below. 

Performance Indicators
Students are assessed using the end-of-year grade-level standards.
M   Meeting the standard consistently and independently. 
P Progressing towards meeting the standard.
B Beginning to progress towards meeting the standard.
N Not yet demonstrating progress towards meeting the standard.
* Asterisk indicates that this standard has not been assessed during this particular term. Some units of study are taught at different times of the school year.

All subject areas, including Social and Emotional Learning, will be assessed using these performance indicators.
