Presentation 2

  1. 1. Standards-Based Elementary Report Card Slide Cast Presentation #2 Office of the Associate Superintendent
  2. 2. WELCOME • Welcome to our CCSD Slide Cast Presentation #2. • This presentation highlights the new Standards-Based Elementary Report Card (SBERC). Office of the Associate Superintendent
  3. 3. In this presentation, you will: – Review the definition of a SBERC – Review “grading” in a Standards-Based Learning Environment – Levels 4, 3, 2, and 1 – Explore the nuances of our new CCSD report card Office of the Associate Superintendent
  4. 4. Achievement Levels Office of the Associate Superintendent
  5. 5. What is a Standards-Based Report Card? • A standards-based report card highlights the most important skills students should learn in each subject at a particular grade level. In a standards-based learning environment, students receive marks that show “how well they mastered each skill.” Office of the Associate Superintendent
  6. 6. How is a standards-based report card different from a traditional report card? • On a standards-based report card, students will receive a mark for the skills associated with each learning area/standard. With a traditional grading system, teachers would calculate an “average” for a content area. By averaging, it is difficult for parents and students to see the particular skill that may require attention or additional work. On our CCSD standards-based report card, a student will receive a mark for each standard. Office of the Associate Superintendent
  7. 7. What is a trimester marking period? • Our new standards-based report card is based on three marking periods. Teachers will use marking period rubrics to evaluate student progress. These rubrics will provide consistency between teachers and schools because all teachers will be using the same rubrics. Office of the Associate Superintendent
  8. 8. Will there still be some parts from the former report card on the new SBERC? • Yes. You will note that our new report cards still maintain some areas noted in the previous report card. For example, included in the new report cards are Personal and Social Development and Work and Study Habits. On a standards-based report card, these are not included in the assessment of the student’s academic skills. Office of the Associate Superintendent
  9. 9. Will there still be conference opportunities available to discuss my child’s progress? • Yes. In the Fall and Spring, parents can still meet with their child’s teacher to discuss progress. Now, teachers will be referencing a rubric to show particular areas of strength and growth opportunities. Office of the Associate Superintendent
  10. 10. Will parents be able to view the curriculum maps and rubrics? • Yes. Parents will have access to these resources from the curriculum webpage at www.ccsd.edu/curric. Office of the Associate Superintendent
  11. 11. Will parents see letter grades, such as A, B, C, D, or F? • No. Teachers will use a rubric and convert letter grades or percentages to a 4, 3, 2, or 1 value should they have an assessment with a traditional score on it. Office of the Associate Superintendent
  12. 12. How can parents learn more about the elements of the report card? • The Curriculum Office has developed a series of Slide Cast presentations describing all facets of the report card. By visiting the curriculum website this information will be available. Office of the Associate Superintendent
  13. 13. What if parents would like to learn more about the new SBERC? • Informational meetings will be conducted on the following dates at the Chestnut Grove Administration Building: 6/1/09, 8/11/09, 8/13/09, and 9/21/09. Office of the Associate Superintendent
  14. 14. Conclusion • This concludes our second Slide Cast presentation. • Our next Slide Cast presentation will explore the connections between and among curriculum maps, grade level rubrics and the report card. Office of the Associate Superintendent
  15. 15. Thank You • I must always take a moment to thank our committee members for their dedication to student learning and the growth of our district. Office of the Associate Superintendent
  16. 16. Office of the Associate Superintendent
