Your standards-based report card allows your teachers to use jmc's gradebook options and share proficiency results at the end of the term with the office, families and students. With jmc, you can easily build a report card worthy of hanging on the refrigerator!

At jmc we break the process of assembling a standards-based report card into three easy-to-follow stages.

  1. Knocking out Standards-Based Report Card prerequisite items

  2. Creating a Standards-Based Report Card

  3. Evolving your Standards-Based Report Card

Knocking out Standards-Based Report Card prerequisite items

Before the jmc Forms team gets involved with creating your standards-based report card, there are a few items to take care of to make sure all of the pieces are in place for success. Simply address these items before moving on to create your standards-based report card to make sure you are ready to roll!

  • Identify a report card expert within your school who will act as the liaison between your school and jmc's forms team.

  • Purchase the Standards and Benchmarks module in jmc by contacting sales@jmcinc.com.

  • Identify priority standards for each grade level and subject area.

  • Create courses that correspond with your standards-based report card areas on the Schedules > Course > Edit Course Data page.

Creating a Standards-Based Report Card

With the prerequisite items taken care of, you're now ready to create your standards-based report card. During the creation process you will establish the look and feel of your report card and communicate your content and formatting needs to the jmc Forms team so they can help set your vision into action.

  • Download and complete the Customizing your district's Standards-Based Report Cards form and submit to the jmc Forms team.

  • Review a draft of your standards-based report card with your district team, collect consolidated feedback and submit to the jmc Forms team for round one revisions.

  • Review the second draft of your standards-based report card with your district team, collect consolidated feedback and submit to the jmc Forms team for a final round of revisions.

Evolving your Standards-Based Report Card

Priorities and philosophies change over time and your standards-based report card can evolve along with them. Make adjustments to the content or formatting of your report card or add new elements to maintain a fresh and current look for your school.

  • Review your standards-based report card at the end of the school year and identify changes needed to the content and formatting.

  • Submit any changes via the priority standard and formatting form in June to ensure standards-based report cards are ready for the upcoming school year.

  • Develop a training plan for teachers new to your school and grading system to make sure everyone stays on the same page.
