Standards Based Report Cards

Why Standards-Based Reporting

  • Standards-Based Grading (SBG) is a refined way of reporting what students know and how they demonstrate their learning of state content standards.
  • The goal of SBG is to better communicate what each student knows and is able to do according to state content standards and separately assess the influence of positive and consistent work habits on student learning.
  • SBG builds a common language between home and schools.
  • SBG provides an understanding of where the student is in developing necessary skills for academic success.

SBG reduces the self-fulfilling achievement stigma students experience when they compare themselves to their peers.
