Objective Based Report Cards

April 17, 2016

Objective Based Report Cards

Each quarter (October, January, March and May) students bring home an Objective Based Report card. These report cards have colorful bars in ELA (English Language Arts) and Math. These bars represent standards that the students should master at their grade level and provide parents with where their child is at in regards to specific standards.

Blue Bar = Beginning (below grade level expectation)

Yellow Bar = Developing (at grade level expectation and requires support)

Green Bar = Secure (at grade level expectation and can perform independently)

Each objective is based off required state standards per grade level. All objectives are not taught within the first 8 weeks of school, thus not all objectives will have a colored bar after the first quarter report card. Objectives are assessed over time, if a student scores beginning, they will later be reassessed on the objective.

Report cards all have letter grades for each subject. Letter grades are derived from an average score of all assignments, from that content area, per quarter.

        This report card shows that the student is beginning (blue bar) in one objective and reassessed in the 2nd quarter to see if the student has grown academically. Students should be working at home on yellow and blue objectives. Teachers also reteach objectives for students that are not secure.

        This report cards shows that the student was Secure (green bar) in several areas. It also shows that not all areas were assessed (the teacher had not taught those units yet) in ELA or math, thus there is no color bar for specific objectives. Also note the letter grade for each subject.


If you have any questions in regards to the Quarterly (October, January, March and May) Report Cards, please contact your classroom teacher. We want you to be able to use this information to support your child at home! Thank you for your support and involvement in your child's education.
