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.
|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.
