In multiage programs, formal progress reports can vary from report card
methods using progress indicators to narrative summaries of student performance.
Each school chooses a format that is most appropriate to its reporting
needs. Here are two examples:
- Williams Elementary School in Williams, Arizona, uses a multiage
report card that indicates a continuum of student development. Filled out
four times per year, the report requires the use of a different colored
marking pen for each quarter. Each developmental category is filled in
like a bar graph. There also is room for teacher comments.
- The Primary Learning Center at Raymond Central Elementary School in
Ceresco, Nebraska, has developed a narrative
student progress report. It is used to communicate information about a
student's accomplishments, interests, abilities, development, and attitudes.
