How often do you report back to the students on their standards-based progress? I’m not referring to their grades which probably have little to do with standards learning. How often do you let them know which standards’ goals they have achieved and which they have yet to achieve? How often do you inform them of what they specifically can do to be more successful in the standard’s goals?
Technology even as simple as a digital spreadsheet can be a great tool for keeping track of students’ progress through the goals of a standard and keeping the students informed.
