Re: Report card ratings

    I have worked in schools where the report cards were a report of
    where the child is on the continuum of learning (mastered,
    developing, etc) with no indication as to how they compare to what
    is expected or how they stack up to the other kids. I have also
    worked where the report compares the child to the district's
    expectations (exceeds expectations, meets expectations, etc) and
    doesn't indication how much they know, just how much in
    comparison to the expectations.

    Which type of reporting do you want and which will be most useful
    for the parents? There are pros and cons to both types.
