Renaming “Progress Reports”

January 10, 2010

Most schools have some kind of “report” that is a written description of each child’s learning and development, that goes home and is filed away at school several times a year.  At ACS, we currently call these “progress reports” but are beginning to realize the insufficiency of this title.  For one, our “reports” are starting to focus more on the group, and where the child fits in that group.  Also,  we no longer are simply trying to fit children into a predetermined box (although we do have objectives, which can be found here).

The “progress reports” are more about what we, as teachers, have learned about each student – this includes their learning styles, individual aesthetics, personalities within the group, and, yes, strengths and areas that need growth.

So, what would you call this kind of written account?
