Standards Based Report Cards

"By comparing one child's performance to a clear standard, parents,

students and teachers all know precisely what is expected

Every time a student attempts a task, the performance is compared

to the standard, not the other students' performances.

The most important advantages for students and families are

fairness, clarity and improved learning."
