Elementary (Grades 1 - 8) Regina Public Schools students receive a Progress Report twice per year that gives an overall course Level of Acheivement. In addition, Levels of Achievement are given for specific outcomes for literacy and mathematics in an Outcome Report. A parent portal is available to all parents in RPS for students in grades one to eight. The following screencasts are available to help with the use of parent portal.
Personal & Social Growth
Regina Public Schools shared values allow students to know how to learn more effectively, develop their potential as independent learners and take ownership over their own learning. Shared values help students to prepare for learning and working in the 21st Century. These learning skills and work habits do contribute to a student’s ability to be successful at school. They are evaluated separately from student achievement of course expectations.
Daily ongoing assessment and Progress Reports are not separate. They inform each other and both are based on outcomes from curriclum. During a study block, students have multiple and varied opportunities to develop, demonstrate, check and refine their understanding. This process is called formative assessment and allows for checking on learning to decide what to do next.
Evaluation is a judgement made about students learning, based on established and shared success criteria. Teachers gather evidence of student learning from observations, conversations and student products (such as reports, projects, tests, assignments) over time and use this evidence to determine students' grades. These evaluations form the basis of Progress Reports levels of achievement to communicate progress to students and parents.
Levels of Achievement
The levels of achievement scale describes the student’s progression toward meeting provincial outcomes. The levels are not used to compare students with other students.
|BE||The student is having difficulty meeting the outcome and requires assistance.|
|PR||Students who are progressing as expected will be in this range. Some assistance is required.|
|ME||The student is fully meeting the outcome. They show what they know independently.|
|ET||The child has full mastery of the outcome and can apply the knowledge. Students with these grades have extensive and deep understanding of the outcome and require no guidance or assistance.|
|IN||The student has not yet demonstrated enough evidence for reporting purposes.|
|AG||The student demonstrates understanding of outcomes that are adjusted in number and complexity. This level of achievement would be discussed with parents prior to the formal Progress Report.|
|EL||The student is focused on English language proficiency. Adjustments have been made to curriculum expectations to address language learning.|
