Standards-Based Grading and Report Cards (K-5)

KCS uses PowerTeacher Pro to produce standards-based report cards to communicate about student learning to students. Standards-based grading provides an accurate, consistent and effective process for reporting levels of student mastery according to state standards.

KCS (K-5) has implemented Standards Based Grading to reflect the standards students are expected to learn. Research demonstrates that traditional approaches to grading are inconsistent and often incorporate factors other than attainment of knowledge and skills. Our goal is to create a common grading system that is aligned to the North Carolina Standard Course of Study and is based on students’ level of mastery rather than percentages or traditional letter grades.
