Graves County elementary schools are now in their third year of Standards Based Grading. Last year, we began reporting these grades through Mastery Connect. We believe that Standards Based Grading ensures that all state standards are taught to your child. It allows us to pinpoint exactly the standard(s) that need more focus so instruction can be adjusted to meet your child’s needs.
With Standards Based Grading, all standards are analyzed individually. Therefore, any standard your child does not master can be identified and action can take place to help him/her master that particular standard. Our report card through Mastery Connect provides parents and students the truest picture of the student’s ability or mastery levels.
This report card is a detailed reporting on a student’s mastery of standards taught in each quarter as well as standards taught throughout the year. This meets the needs of teachers, parents and students. Parents and students have online access to view the mastery level of each activity, assessment, etc. for each standard taught.
Parents can view a detailed report card online of their child’s abilities. Parent-Teacher conferences are scheduled for October 18th from 3:00 – 6:00, so you and your child’s teacher(s) can review and discuss the report in detail.
Below are the Levels of Mastery that will be on your child’s report card and school work.
Levels of Mastery – Colors Represent Levels:
M = Mastery of Standards (Green)
NM = Near Mastery of Standards (Yellow)
R = Remedial Level of Understanding (Red)
Report cards will be available on October 14th and you will receive an email when they become available. If you accessed your child’s report card last year, your password will be the same this year. If you are a new parent to the system, you will receive an email that has your login and password information. Please check your junk mail if you have not received an email. Please contact us if you have difficulties accessing your child’s report card. If you do not have Internet access, please call the school and let us know that you would like your child’s report card printed and sent home.
