We are now required to report out to parents each student's current instructional reading assessment level and expected level. You may do this In one of the following ways:

  • In the reading comments section of the EPR, you may put, "A detailed report of your child's reading progress and current level is in their Friday Folder." (If using this option, please copy and paste this comment directly into your EPR comments.
  • You may record each student's Scale Score and percentile in their reading comments box. Please remember to explain what the scores mean so that parents will not be calling you with questions over the summer.
  • All students will need a copy of their latest STAR report in their last Friday Folder communication, regardless of which method you use to communicate the above information.

New EPR Scoring Language

This grading scale will remain consistent for the second semester of the 2015-2016 school year.

Grading Scale Supporting Language:

  • A score of “Exceeds” indicates a high level of achievement; it communicates that a student has a strong understanding of the content/concepts/skills taught during the semester and can demonstrate understanding independently and with very few errors.

  • A score of “Meets” indicates that a student demonstrates understanding of content/concepts/skills most of the time and with limited support. Student makes few major errors or omissions when demonstrating concepts/skills.

  • A score of “Approaching” indicates that a student requires moderate support to demonstrate understanding of concepts/skills. Demonstrated understanding of concepts/skills is inconsistent or infrequent indicating a partial understanding of the content/concepts/skills. Errors or omissions in work are more frequent.

  • A score of “Does Not Meet” indicates that a student seldom demonstrates understanding of concepts and skills taught during the semester. Student requires considerable support to demonstrate learning of concepts and skills and makes frequent major errors when demonstrating understanding.
