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 Graduation Standard while the directly assessed standard/target is referred to as a Performance Indicator.
Example One: Grad standards and performance indicators 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 grad standards, OR each grad standard can be treated equally in the average. This decision must be made school-wide. If the former is chosen, the weight of a grad standard is equal to the sum of the weights of the underlying performance indicators.
2. These are graduation standards. The score for graduation standards is calculated as a weighted average of the underlying performance indicator scores. The weight of a performance indicator is equal to the sum of the weights of its underlying assessments.
Performance indicators are listed underneath the graduation standards. Habits of work are displayed separately for each course
Example Two: Only performance indicators are displayed (no grad 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 performance indicator scores. No grad standards are shown on this report.
Example Three: Only grad standards are shown, no performance indicators, 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 grad standards as in example one. No performance indicators are displayed here. In the case that there is not enough information yet to calculate a score for a grad standard, a U will be displayed in place of a score.
Example Four: Grad standards and performance indicators 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 grad standards/indicators may be scored by more than one teacher and in more than one course. Only grad standards and underlying performance indicators 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 performance indicator (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.
