Standards-Based Reporting

Oak Grove School started using standards-based reporting in 2016-17 for grades K-5. This page offers a few resources for parents that would like more information about standards-based reporting at Oak Grove School.

November 13, 2017 Update:

On Thursday, November 16th, you will be receiving your child's report card for the first trimester.  We wanted to share an update with you regarding the reporting of standards, for report cards in kindergarten through fifth grade.  You will notice that an asterisk will be added to some standards. 

What Does This Mean?

  • Reported by Trimester (shown with an asterisk): Student learning is being reported to indicate a student's abilities based on where the teacher expects the student to be at this point in the year.
    • Example: A student may receive a '3' in Tri 1 and a '2' in Tri 2 as learning expectations increase.
  • Reported by End of Year: Student learning is being reported to show progress towoards the end of the year standard.  With that in mind, please understand that your child may be receiving the Standards Key 2 Inconsistent Progress for some learning targets.
    • Example: A student's scores should increase as they progress towards the end of year standards. 

July 1, 2017 Update:

As we enter our second year of standards based grading (SBG) in grades kindergarten through 5th grade, we will be extending our understanding of SBG to the middle grades with a Year of Learning. Having a ‘Year of Learning’ will allow teachers to continue to use their traditional grading practices for grades 6-8 while taking the time to learn more about the value and implementation of the standards based system. In addition, we will also be hosting our Middle School Standards Based Committee, starting in the fall, to gain an even deeper understanding of SBG and to help provide feedback related to implementation in future years.  

Our purpose in grading is to ensure that parents receive the most accurate information regarding their children’s achievement and we are continuously striving to meet that goal.
