RP w/Correlations -   2016-17 templates used to display correlations.  

Standards-Based v. Traditional

The Reports of Progress were developed by teachers to better capture a student's achievement toward grade-level standards and expectations.  

What is the purpose of the new Report of Progress?

The purpose of the Report of Progress is to communicate student progress toward achieving the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).  The Report of Progress will identify areas of strength and areas where additional time and effort are needed to meet these standards. 

What is the difference between a traditional "report card" and standards-based "report of progress"?

The chart below outlines the major differences.  PVUSD is choosing to replace the title "report card" with "Report of Progress" as a way to solidify the transition to the new templates.  

Traditional Report Card                                                                      Standards-Based Report of Progress
Reporting based on subject area.                                                

Reporting based on grade-level targets that indicate what students should understand and be able to do as defined by standards (the CA-CCSS for English Language Arts & Literacy and Mathematics).

Grades are given for each subject area, such as reading, writing, math, etc.

Subject areas are sub-divided into a list of concepts/skills that students need to master. Each item listed receives a "mark' indicating progress toward mastery.                 

Work habits may be calculated in with the letter grade (missing assignments, late work, homework, effort, etc.).

Work habits are reported separately and are not calculated with marks given to indicate a student's proficiency in a standard(s).

Often measures how well students do in comparison to classmates, typically applied when using traditional percentage-based grading.

Report should measure how well an individual student is doing in relation to the grade-level standards/learning targets.  The purpose is to give parents (and the student) a clear understanding of their child's strengths and weaknesses in specific areas/concepts.
