K-3 Report Card Information

Standards-based assessment and reporting helps teachers specifically target instruction to meet student needs and provides parents with better feedback about student strengths and weaknesses. The goal of the new report cards is to communicate to parents the progress that students are making toward meeting specific grade level standards and expectations. Standards-based report cards differ from traditional report cards in that they:

  • Identify the most important skills in each content area at every grade level;
  • Have a benchmark-based assessment scale for each reporting period; and
  • Are aligned to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards and district curriculum.
