In standards-based grading and reporting, teachers provide parents with information about both the academic indicators (what their child knows and can do) and academic behaviors that support learning (their child’s work habits that support learning).
This new level of reporting grades provides high quality 1) feedback to students, 2) communication with parents and 3) support to teachers as they modify instruction to help students learn.
Academic behaviors to support learning describe the actions that support the student's academic achievement. Work habits and social
development are an important component of communicating to parents their child’s progress. Factors, such as work habits, task completion, and responsibility in the classroom are the building blocks of character.
