Pleasant View's Standards-Based Report Cards

Using a standards-based grading system to better understand student progress

Context

Pleasant View Elementary is part of the Providence Public Schools District, which transitioned to standards-based report cards two years ago.

Once everyone started to understand how standards-based grading worked, the benefits became clear: teachers, students, and families are able to see a more clear picture of student progress.
