The Standards Based Report Card Template is an easy self-creating module which enables a school website to create a standardised report card for every grade level. Report cards are also created for every age group, for example: pre-school (PN), K-12 (KG), High School (HS), College (CA), Online Education (OEM) (ED), Career Development (CD), and Math (Maths). These cards may contain text, diagrams, images, and graphs; as well as complex data such as assessments, achievements, and scores. The data may be presented in various reports, charts, or tables. They may be printed, plain or highlighted, plain, or customized with one or more graphics. They may be printed on different quality products such as glossy paper, heavy card stock, or regular paper; and even emailed, faxed, or mailed in digital form.
The card templates are prepared by a specially trained user and downloaded into the website. A wizard provides guidance on how to use the software and shows the various controls and menus available. New blank values, new fonts, and new logo options can all be selected by the user. One click is all that is required in most cases to complete the process of customising the template.
A standardized report card template contains a document that is the basis for grading and assessing student performance. This document is usually the same for all subjects and grades are based on the content within this document. The document consists of a Subject heading which identifies the subject area, an overview of the objectives of the Learning Outcomes, procedures for delivering learning objectives, definitions of terms, and other details relevant to the Learning Outcomes. Within this document there will be a number of examples of past grading results, and a summary of grading procedures and criteria which are used in the current grading process.
Most report cards follow similar formats, but there are those which contain innovative formats based on the individual assessment of students. Some may use a vertical bar for reporting scores, whereas some report cards have a horizontal bar. Some may also include a combination of the two. The best way to identify what format is most appropriate for your own grading system is to read your specific document and identify the type of scoring format that is commonly used within your organization. There are other specifications that you should consider, such as the actual number of points that need to be achieved for a particular mark to be awarded.
An example of a report card that incorporates a format with a vertical bar and a report grading information is shown on the web page showing the example of the report card found on the web page. This report card has an area where there are four boxes which are divided by a line through the top of the page. The first box, labeled F(3), is the lowest grade that can be awarded for a given test. The other three grades are A, B, and C. The first three grades are based on the individual assessment of the student while the fourth grade is determined by the national curriculum. When a student submits their report, the results of their testing will be entered into the grading section of this report card. Depending on the format used in your organization, the student may not see the results of their reports until they enter the corresponding text boxes onto the appropriate page in the print preview that accompanies the grading system.
Some report cards feature a grading system with a grading toolbar that allows the user to enter the various results as they occur. For example, the grading results for a math test can appear on the page in either a table format or a panorama format depending on the layout of the document in question. Once the user has entered their results, they can choose to view the entire report or only select specific items that are relevant to their needs. The next screen that they see is the Grade Dropdown list. If a student has crossed the “gone over” line, they will be removed from that grade grouping and be required to again start the grade form.
The final step of the standardized report cards template is the Result Detail panel where they can change the grades they have been given as well as click on “Submit” to submit the entire report to the appropriate organization. At this stage, students will be able to access the grading results for every lesson. Grades are based on a variety of different criteria which includes the student’s level of comprehension, their demonstrated learning ability, and their participation in the lesson. Students are also able to set a maximum score which is the maximum number of points that they believe they can achieve.
In order to ensure that there is uniformity across all reports across all organizations, the SBS uses a centralized database of student data. Students are prompted at every step of the way with the same formatting that they would see on a standard report card or a teacher report card. Although the results are compiled into standard grading reports, they are not presented in a way which is the same as what would be found on a standard grading rubric. Instead of using tick marks, stars, or lower or upper case letters, students are encouraged to enter a specific code. After entering the code, they will be able to view the grading results on that particular subject. This is the only way in which a student will be able to identify which grades are reflected on their report cards and which grades were awarded for their work.
