Standards & Report Cards

St Croix Central is proud to announce that we will be adopting standards based report cards for the 2014-15 school year in 4K through 5th grade.The purpose of the standards-based report card is to provide feedback that is more detailed so parents can see the progress their children are making toward specific end of the grade level targets/standards.  This type of report card helps parents and students gain a better understanding of what’s expected at each grade level.  The information from a standards-based report card better enables parents to guide and support their child in being successful in school.

For more information, please see the documents below or contact your child's teacher.

Rubrics and Learning Targets

What is a "rubric"?
A rubric is an easily applicable form of authentic assessment. A rubric simply lists a set of criteria, which defines and describes the important components of the work being planned or evaluated. A rubric should give clear guidelines to a reviewer on how to evaluate or "grade" a project presentation. Since the criteria for assessment are clearly defined in gradations from poor to excellent, different reviewers can arrive at similar conclusions when comparing a given presentation to each of the graduated criteria on a rubric.
What is a "learning target"?
Learning targets are short term goals or statements. Your learning targets should clearly state what you expect students to know and be able to do at the end of the lesson(s). At SCC we sometimes call these "I Can" Statements.
