Report Cards for Primary (K-3/K-8) Schools

April 12, 2013

It’s true that we at QuickSchools are very proud of our versatile and easy-to-use online gradebook. But for schools that evaluate students not based on marks or test scores, you can very easily bypass the gradebook, and include standards-based evaluations and assessments directly into the report cards. Let’s see an example.

Here’s an example report card that includes several standards and commentary for subjects being taught to the student:

Sample Primary Report Card

This was created using our readily-available “Family Verbose” report card template. The standards-based evaluations can actually be dropdowns, and they can be customized for each subject via the “Report Cards” > “Subject Specific Criteria” menu (if enabled):

To select this template for your school, simply go to “Report Cards” > “Setup Report Cards” menu, and click on the “Select Template” link:

From there, you can choose from a variety of template. Select the one appropriate for your school and marking period (you can use different templates for different marking periods, as well as for different grades):

Finally, if you’re interested in setting up standards for specific subjects, you’ll need to turn on the “Subject-Based Criteria” available at the bottom of the screen:

For more information on how to set up standards in your report card, please come chat with us. You can also check out this article from a previous blog post:

In summary, the QuickSchools Report Cards Module is very versatile, and easy to configure. If you don’t like any of the readily available templates, or if you have trouble deciding which is the best for you, please contact out technical support staff. If you send us a sample of your existing report cards, we can either recommend a template for you, or build you a custom template at no charge. And you can do all this during your 30-day QuickSchools trial, so you’ll know EXACTLY what your report cards will look like before paying a single cent.
