Question

Ken, We have an outcomes framework for our curriculum. Teachers teach and assess achievement in relation to those outcomes. When they evaluate and report they reference the outcomes, we do not report on each outcome.In grades P-8 we have 3 reporting terms. Our current report card states ...achievement in relation to the outcomes addressed during the current reporting period. We are engaged in a reviewing process and are questionng this statement. With current assessment practices and with curriculum design students would/should have multiple opportunities during the course/year to demonstrate that achievement. Can you provide some feedback on whether we should consider removing that statement? Should the final report in June reflect overall achievement in that course? Would appreciate your thoughts!

Yes, because they are outcomes for the course and because standards are usually year-end
standards.
