Report Cards are one portion of the communication process regarding your student's process toward grade level expectations. The report card reflects a comparison of your student's demonstration of understanding in each subject area to each Alberta Program of Study.
Student achievement on the Report Card is documented in two ways:
Achievement Indicators (numbers from 1-4) are explained on the first page of the report card, please review this chart. A teacher uses observations during learning tasks, conversations during learning tasks, and products (stories, mathematical representations, presentations, etc.) that the students complete and then compares this to the expectations from the Alberta Program of Studies to determine Achievement Indicators that best reflects each student’s understanding. Teachers use the most recent, consistent evidence of student understanding when determining which indicator best reflected a student’s current overall understanding.
Descriptive Comments explain the items the teacher would like you to know regarding both success and areas for growth.
