Assessment at Marshall Springs is ongoing. Subject teachers administer tests and quizzes frequently during the year. More formal examinations are conducted in each subject at the end of reporting periods. While test and quizzes are one way that you will be asked to demonstrate your understanding of your Essential Student Learning Outcomes, you will have lots of opportunities to demonstrate your learning in other ways as well.
Why Do We Give Grades and Create Report Cards in Middle School?
Communication between home and school is very important. Two times per year you and your parents receive a report with information, or feedback, on your achievements and progress in your middle school classes. These reports also serve as official school records/transcripts if you need to move to another school. Parents can expect to receive report cards in December, and at the end of June. As well, parents can access electronic updates via MyCBE / PowerSchool and D2L for their child on a regular basis.
In addition, we have parent/teacher/student meetings midway through our first and second reporting periods. Interviews are scheduled for November, and March. Report card dates and parent/teacher/student conference times are published in our weekly e-letter, and posted on Facebook and the Marshall Springs website.
