The last part is probably my favorite. It’s all about the reporting tool. How do we, as teachers, inform our students and their parents of their progress? How do we keep track of all of this data for ourselves as well?
*Before I tell you about these reporting tools, please know that they are for ALL teachers. Not just teachers that use standards based grading! If you use traditional grading (i.e., A-F scale) you can also use these.

The great thing about these resources is that I have created them not only for teachers using standards based grading, but for ALL teachers. If you are using traditional grading and report cards you can use them too. I have also included pages in these packs to help you plan and group your students for small group instruction or RTI (response to intervention).
Here is how I use THIS Teacher Data Tracking tool:
Here are some pictures of the pages included in this resource. With this page below, the standards are written on top and color coded for each domain. There are two versions of this page, one says Pre-Assessment on top and the other says Post-Assessment on top. You can type or write your students’ names on the document and either put their score or a check mark under Intervention, At Standard, or Enrichment depending on how well they did on their assessments.
All of the pages in this resource are great for reporting to parents. I plan to use these as report cards or progress reports throughout the year. Once again, all of the domains are color coded for easy organization and the standards are written out for both parents and students to see.
The page below is an another great resource for documentation. You can keep track of all pre-assessments, assignments, formative assessments, and post-assessments for each student. You can also check a color coded box next to each assignment/assessment to quickly see how the student is doing with mastery of the standard, or to quickly place them in small groups for any intervention, re-teaching, or enrichment groups.
Remember, this resource is completely editable. So you can type on the above page instead. I also include a text editable PDF, and I have it set up so that you can just click one of the colored boxes and it automatically puts in a check mark for you!
You can then take the above information, and use the color coded boxes to form your groups using this page below. These pages are also color coded by domain, and have the standards written on top. I plan to use these when forming my small groups for instruction or RTI groups. I typically have so many students going in and out of my class for interventions throughout the day, and so many adults that I need to communicate this info to, so this will help all of us stay organized.
Here are some more pages:
This page is really helpful when planning your intervention, at grade level, or enrichment lessons.
