Making sure students have truly obtained the knowledge and skills.
Standards-Based Reporting is a system in which the student is assessed on individual “Performance Indicators” or, in simpler terms, “skills” and “knowledge.”
CAISL uses Standards-based Reporting in Early childhood all the way up to 8th Grade and the goal is to make sure that our students have truly obtained the knowledge and skills they need to progress.
When issued, transcripts have grading “keys” to help interpret what the scores mean within the context of the school.
Learn more about Standard-Based Reporting on the Frequently Asked Questions and the 'Guide to Standards-Based Reporting'.
