A critical element of any student's learning experience is the need for informed and meaningful feedback to those invested in the student's progress. Reporting on student progress must have a well-defined purpose for it to be meaningful. Our school has identified four primary purposes for reporting student progress:
To document student progress and the effectiveness of instructional programs.
To prompt teachers to make periodic, formal assessments of each pupil's progress.
To enable each student to gain a positive sense of his/her intellectual, social, emotional, and physical abilities and growth toward effective citizenship.
