says:

I believe trimesters are best. Three high quality standards-based expanded format report
cards a year provide sufficient formal information for parents and are manageable for
teachers. Also 13 weeks is enough time for a quality teaching/learning process and to
collect sufficient summative assessment evidence to be able to determine accurate,
meaningful grades.
