Grade reports for high school students
Most grading is online with students and parents having real-time access to grades 24/7; however, many do not take the time to check these grades or have meaningful conversations about them. I created this free grade report to send home twice each semester. Students fill them out, and I write a 1-2 sentence comment at the bottom. Parents responded very positively to these grade sheets, and students had to evaluate their behaviors and create strategies for improvement. I was surprised at the honesty in the student evaluations. It also takes the pressure off of me because the students are the ones commenting on their behaviors. I just write a quick positive note at the bottom.
