Reporting

"According to McTighe, reporting documents should distinguish between the following factors:

  • achievement - performance relative to identified learning outcomes based on collected evidence and judged against established criteria
  • progress - degree of growth toward mastery of the learning outcomes, based on a performance continuum
  • work habits - includes effort, completion of assignments, behaviour and attendance"

"... each of these factors should be reported separately.
