    Hi Lisa I am a Teacher in Australia. I really like our school
    reporting system and I believe it gives parents a clear
    understanding of what their child is capable of doing and
    where they stand in class. We use the following codes for
    report cards:

    Extensive A - (Achieving more than generally is expected)
    Thorough B- (Achieving more than generally is expected)
    Sound C- Achieving what is generally expected
    Basic D - Yet to achieve what is generally expected compared
    to other students of a similar age
    Elementary E- Yet to achieve what is generally expected
    compared to other students of a similar age

    I hope it helps. Thank You
