Proficiency Reports for 3rd Grade Students

The purpose of Proficiency Reports for 2nd and 3rd grade students is to 
  • to monitor each student's progress on each  standard
  • to communicate specific areas of success and need to parents
  • for teachers to adjust instruction to meet students' needs 

The benefits of Proficiency Reports include: 

  • more individualized instruction and learning
  • clearly identified skills and concepts for extra support and extension

Understanding Your Child's Proficiency Report

  • Each student receives a score of 4, 3, 2, 1 for each core concept taught for each nine weeks.
  • N/A will appear in areas that were not assessed in that reporting period.
  • Core concepts are based upon grade level standards.
  • A performance level of 3 indicates that a student is performing on grade level on that given concept.
  • The goal is for all students to reach Level 3-Proficient by the end of the year.
  • The standards are what students should know and be able to do at the end of the school year.
  • All third grade teachers use the same or similar assessment items to determine proficiency for each standard.
  • Teachers meet regularly to ensure consistency from class to class.
