This year there will be a new scoring system used to grade student work. The Progress Key chart is consistent with the scoring key of the NYS assessments. |
Previously, your child received an E, S, P, or N for a grade and effort was reflected with a numerical value 1-4. However, in order to be consistent with the NYS assessments, a new scoring system has been put in place. Hopefully the charts below will help eliminate any confusion.
|Progress Key (traditionally known as a grade)
||Meeting Standards with Distinction
||Partially Meeting Standards
||Not meeting Standards
Effort Key (amount of effort used to complete task)
N- Needs Improvement
Guide to Weekly Reports
Every Friday your child will bring home a weekly report to keep you informed on how your child is doing in Kindergarten. The weekly report will contain an overall ELA, Math and behavior score for the week.
Grades: The grades reflected in the weekly reports are the same as the report card.
4: Meeting Standards with Distinction
3: Meeting Standards
2: Partially Meeting Standards
1: Not Meeting Standards
If your child received a 4 or 3, your child is meeting the targets for the week. If your child received a 2, your child needs to practice the target that they are struggling with. If your child received a 1, this is a target that needs to be discussed with the teacher.
Behavor: This will reflect how your child behaved and worked in the classroom
