The following are some examples of different progress report options for schools that use our District Edition which features hierarchical standards. In these examples the highest level of standard is referred to as a Parent Standard while the directly assessed standard/target is referred to as a Child Standard.
Example One: Parent standards and Child Standards are displayed, separated by course.
1. This is the course grade, and can be removed from the report if needed. The course grade is calculated as a weighed average of the underlying Parent Standards, OR each Parent Standard can be treated equally in the average. This decision must be made school-wide. If the former is chosen, the weight of a Parent Standard is equal to the sum of the weights of the underlying Child Standards.
2. These are Parent Standards. The score for Parent Standards is calculated as a weighted average of the underlying Child Standard scores. The weight of a Child Standard is equal to the sum of the weights of its underlying assessments.
Child Standards are listed underneath the Parent Standards. Habits of work are displayed separately for each course.
Example Two: Only Child Standards are displayed (no Parent Standards) separated by course:
Here again the course grade can be removed if needed. In this example, the course grade is calculated as a weighted average of the underlying Child Standard scores. No Parent Standards are shown on this report.
Example Three: Only Parent Standards are shown, no Child Standards, separated by course.
In the example above, course grades again can be removed, but if displayed they are calculated either as a weighted average or straight average of the underlying Parent Standards as in example one. No Child Standards are displayed here, though the score printed for a given Parent Standard is derived from its underlying Child Standards. In the case that there is not enough information yet to calculate a score for a Parent Standard, a U will be displayed in place of a score.
Example Four: Parent Standards and Child Standards are displayed without course headings, and no course grades are given.
This example is compatible with cross-curricular models where no course grade is needed and Parent/Child standards may be scored by more than one teacher and in more than one course. Only Parent Standards and underlying Child Standards are displayed, with no separation for what course they were entered into.
This is only the beginning of the available options, but the above examples are our most commonly chosen formats. A few other common custom options include:
- removing the colorful mastery bar
- adding teacher name next to the course
- displaying assessments and scores underneath each Child Standard (only available on examples 1, 2, and 4
- Removing the "calculation method", such as Power Law, that is displayed next to the performance indicators
- Displaying school name and letterhead at the top of the report
- Adding a custom message, or legend, to the top of the report.
