“Starting Report Cards Early” Tuesday November 1, 2016

cb8861436ec20b5d77a699d71ae0d247Report cards go out a week from tomorrow. I remember being shown how to do report cards during student teaching, but this system is completely different.

I have a list of instructions from our computer guy about how to log into the software, enter the grades, and post the scores. But that doesn’t mean I have any idea which grades I should be entering and how they’re supposed to look.

At this grade level it’s a scale from 1–4 instead of letter grades. I know better than to give anybody a “4” because a “4” is “exceeding grade-level expectations” and that shouldn’t happen in the first quarter. I know I’m also not allowed to give anybody a “1” because a “1” means “failing to meet minimum expectations”

So everybody’s going to get a 2 unless I feel that they know what they’re doing, then they’ll get a 3.

I also have to write original comments for every student.

I’m pretty sure I know what I’ll be doing this weekend.

  1. Ah, the joys of report cards. I don’t have to do that. However, whenever my students take a progress test (and they bitch and moan to do it early) I have to sit down with them and individually go over the test. It is so much fun it is like going to Disneyworld (I hope I have mastered the art of sarcastic typing).
