Teachers and Administrators,
I need some data on how you do assessment reporting at your school. This survey is quick, and can be totally anonymous. This is for some research I am working-on.
Assessment Reporting Survey

I am unable to complete your survey, as we are a standards-based grading school. 🙂
*For question 1, For how often are you required to report…*
It varies by department and division. In the math department we see regular (1xweek) reporting, but in our English departments, once every two weeks. In our lower grades, they blog once a week about what is happening in class and report once a semester. There are no report cards in the high school, only transcripts, and in the middle school, reports are printed twice a year. The Elementary school prints report cards twice a year.
*For question 3, Are you allowed to enter letter grades only…*
We use 2 different grade scales for achievement (1-7), and for approaches to learning (1-4 – which are never expressed numerically only through the indicators). We also have some pass / fail classes, and some classes which use a different scale (1 to 10, 0 to 5).
*For question 5, how often do you comment…*
Teachers are required to enter an assignment comment when a grade is below a 3. We require all teachers to have a comment at reporting time, which is by semester.
*For question 11, I am primarily a….* I’m K-12 🙂
One other point – we only have formal reporting 4 times a year (quarterly). Teachers are asked to keep their online, live gradebook up to date as they see fit.
I hope this data helps your research
