A Sample Standards-Based Gradebook

Standards-based gradebooks communicate the student’s strengths and weaknesses relative to the course standards. In addition, practice completion is reported, though these assignments do not count toward the student’s final course grade.

In this sample gradebook, the student has a strong understanding of several standards, including the ability to cite text evidence. Two current areas of growth are “determining author’s point of view” and “analyzing author’s claims” — deficiencies that may be due in part to a missing reading-response practice activity.
