Understanding Feedback on Student Work


You will notice this year that student work is graded differently than it has been in the past for 1st - 4th grade.  In order to give better feedback about students’ present level of performance, we are reporting on individual standards.  We are giving feedback in the form of levels of mastery rather than letter grades that are based on a percentage of points earned.  


When you see your child’s papers marked with a 3, 2, or 1, here is what that means.


3 = On Target for the grade level standard

2 = Approaching the grade level standard

1 = Emerging knowledge/skills on the grade level standard.


In student terms it looks like this:
