Standards Based Grading

We are thrilled to share that all students in Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades will have a Standards-Based report card every nine weeks, which will replace the traditional report card we have used in previous years. This type of evaluation of student learning greatly benefits our students by clearly measuring their proficiency on defined essential standards in each core content area, along with digital learning, Profile of a Learner (social development), and our fine arts. 
Educational research shows that when teachers measure students’ learning based on standards and not just a numerical or letter grade, then the ability for teachers to target specific areas of student strength and need is much more easily identified. Traditional grading systems are based on an average, which sometimes does not make clear to students and their families exactly what students have mastered or are still working on. Families will receive weekly communication through their students' folder from the classroom teacher indicating how their student is progressing on mastering each standard. The design of this Klein ISD standards-based report card was a collective effort of many of our teachers, specialists, and District Instructional Development Council, and we celebrate our educators’ focus on student learning and providing targeted feedback about student progress.
