a tool used by teachers to give learners specific feedback on their
language progress over a reporting period
a document given to the learner so that they can keep track of their
progress and use the information to set goals
Note:These reports do not count for citizenship purposes!
1. The student has accumulated 8-10 pieces of evidence in every skill
2. The student has studied at the current level for 200-250 hours
3. The student has been in the class for the whole term (for 200-250 hours), has 8-10 artifacts, and all (or most) of
his/her benchmarks change so he/she will advance to the next level
4. The student has been in the class for the whole term (for 200-250 hours), has 8-10 artifacts, moves up in one or
two skills but will not move up to the next class level (and will repeat the level again).
5. The student has been in the class for the whole term (for 200-250 hours), has 8-10 artifacts, and none of his/her
benchmarks change so he/she will repeat the level again and receive a Learner Report
Note: Students who do not meet the criteria above, will receive a Conference Report.Consult

Follow these steps:
1. Before you begin entering data, download and save the blank form from your email.
2. From your computer file, open the form and click ‘save as’ and give the file a name (e.g., the student’s name)
3. After you have filled out all of the fields, click ‘save’.
Follow steps 2 and 3 for each student file.
If you need to go back and make any changes to a saved file (e.g., Jane Doe's file), click 'save as' and change the
file name (e.g., Jane Doe1). If you do not change the file name, you will lose the changes you have made.
DO NOT fill in the form in PDF Preview OR from within your email program.This will result inA BLANK FORM.
You have space for 1140 characters for the Learner Strengths and Progress text box and 330 characters in
the Suggestions for Learning box.This should be more than sufficient “space” for comments you will be making.

Part-time = 12
Full-time = 25
Weekend = 6
End date is the last day of instruction for your benchmark reporting
period (i.e., the last day of the semester)
For this chart, you should only fill in section A or section B for each learner.
A= ILVARC benchmarks
B = Benchmarks from previous term either from C.I.E.S. or from another school
(PreB, CBL1, 2,3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 or literacyCLBs only)
Again, either A or B, not both!
5End of term Benchmarks based on the portfolio
N/A may be used if a student was not assessed in a skill
(L,S,R,W) because their benchmark was outside the
range of the class. The student’s CLB in that skill will
not change on their certificate.
Summary of brief, specific and objective points on learner’s

You may choose to use beginning or developing to describe

Note: All continuing learners (that is, learners who were in the class from the first day of class) will have the same number of
possible days in a reporting period. Learners who joined the class part way through the benchmark reporting period will have a
different number of possible days.
Multiply the student’s official number of days
attended by the number of hours you teach
per week (see above).This number will be
