Mark your calendars: The first I-CANyons student progress report of the school year will be issued the week of Nov. 17-21, 2014. This is a new student report, updated from last school year’s document to be more user-friendly based on feedback received from parents and teachers. Parents can expect an I-CANyons progress report for Term 1 and Term 2, and an End-of-Year Summary issued after Term 3 to reflect your students' mastery of standards.
This upcoming I-CANyons Student Reports will communicate your student’s progress toward content mastery with a 3, 2 or 1:
- 3: On Track at this Time - Student is on track to master this standard by the end of the school year.
- 2: Progressing - Student is making progress toward meeting the standard at this time; sometimes demonstrating skills needed to meet standards, at other times showing a lack of understanding or ability to apply the concept or skills.
- 1: Insufficient Progress - Student is showing risk of not mastering the standard by the end of the year and is receiving intervention support.
At the end of Term 3, the I-CANyons student reports will communicate your student’s mastery of content in the following ways:
- 3M: Mastered – Student has mastered this standard.
- 2NYM: Not Yet Mastered – Student has mastered some but not all of the skills necessary to consistently apply this standard to future learning.
- 1NYM: Not Yet Mastered – Student will require on-going intervention to master this standard.
