I would also like to see how other schools are designing standards based report templates that can easily be printed, exported, mail merged.
We worked with MBA and Power School to install Report Card Creator. https://mba-link.com/. This was HUGE! you can easily design new update report cards in Power School for standards based report cards. We are able to adjust the report card for different schools (ES/MS/HS) and for different semesters. I am really pleased with how this is going to revolutionize how we report to parents.
One click distribution of report cards to families,
Past report cards available to teachers, admin, and families.
Color and photos of teachers and students easy to add to template.
no limit to characters in teacher comments.
More ideas coming soon as we get trained and use this new feature.
ALSO a Covid tracer plug in for FREE!
Thank you for reaching out to PowerSchool Community!
To assist you further, would you please provide more details such as what would be the fields you would like to see within your report?
I'd be happy to share my template with you but it would need a lot of massaging to work with your standards. I have a different one for each grade. I've attached our 5th grade report card - remove the .txt from the end of the file name before importing into PS.
For our SBG report card, I had teachers enter their standards into a spreadsheet the way they wanted them in PowerTeacher. Keep in mind: using lower level standards to determine grades for higher level standards only works for 2 levels. Sometimes the state standards go 3 or 4 levels down but those won't roll-up when calculating. I imported the standards then created object reports using standards objects.
Examples of our K-5 RCs are attached. We are also transitioning to SBG at middle school and I can upload examples of those if you're interested.
Thank you so much for sharing this. I would love to see the middle school versions if you don't mind. We're struggling with the upper grades. Thank you so much!
Middle School has been challenging. We started off using a 4pt. standards grade scale and no traditional grading. Teachers found that a 1 or a 2 didn't really light a fire under anyone like an F did. So we ended up with this hybrid model. Parents can also login to the public portal and see grades on all the lower-level standards that roll up into the ones on the report card.
