What is standards referenced grading?

Students benefit when families and teachers collaborate in the educational process.

Prairie Creek teachers are committed to partnering with families to communicate student progress. Standards/Learning Targets are used to guide the curriculum and measure student progress.

Key Ideas Behind Standards Referenced Grading:

  • Learning targets are taken from standards but written in kid-friendly language
  • Reports student achievement toward learning targets at a given time
  • Goal is for students to master learning targets, with multiple opportunities to show learning
  • Provides teachers with information that allows them to adjust instruction to meet students’ needs, noting students’ strengths and areas for growth
  • Encourages student reflection, responsibility, and accountability

 How do we use standards referenced grading on a report card?

Report cards are one part of our communication system between home and school. The purpose of the report card is to communicate achievement in specific learning goals to students and their families. It identifies students’ levels of progress toward those goals, including areas of strength and areas where additional time and effort are needed. Report card categories are based on major areas of the Common Core/Iowa Core standards in Literacy, Math, Social Studies, Science and Employability Skills.

How does standards referenced grading compare to traditional grading?

Note from the Nurse

CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine for everyone as the first and most important step in protecting against this serious disease. While there are many different flu viruses, the flu vaccine is designed to protect against the three main flu strains that research indicates will cause the most illness during the flu season. Getting the flu vaccine soon after it becomes available each year is always a good idea, and the protection you get from vaccination will last throughout the flu season.
