Question

Ken,
My question is regarding how to grade and report Kindergarten and early primary. Our report cards right now have a 5 point rating scale and we are finding, as are other districts in the province, that using a 5 point rating scale does not always work for some of the developmental outcomes or outcomes that are either a got it or not type of outcome. What is your advice on this? Do you have any suggestions or examples of report cards that address this issue?

It seems to me that for Kindergarten a 2 or 3 point scale would be sufficient. We shouldn't try
to fit square pegs into round holes!
