"What students should know and be able to do."

Agreed upon by educators at all levels of education

Wisconsin calls the Standards...Model Academic Standards/Common Core State Standards District learning priorities linked to Standards

Aligns to Standards Based instruction Sets common, rigorous expectations for academic performance for ALL students across the district Provides a results-focus on learning, not other factors used previously in grading systems

Why Standards Based Reporting?

Emphasizes self-assessment and growth, not competition Makes marking and grading more consistent

Provides a basis for accountability and real-life application of learning Addresses developmental knowledge and skills over time

Parents will see their child's specific strengths and weaknesses within each content area. Students are compared to set criteria based on academic learning, not to other students.

The process is NO SECRET to the students.

Kindergarten through second grade will not receive overall grades. Parents will be able to see how their child performs on the individual standards for each subject area. This easily shows you your child's strengths.

This also shows you where your child is having difficulty.
