Starting next school year, we will be implementing a new proficiency scale that better aligns with assignments, assessments, and Common Core Standards.
What does a proficiency scale represent?
A Proficiency Scale takes a learning standard and breaks it down into four levels of support needed to demonstrate proficiency. This information is organized in a visual chart that can be used as a learning tool for teachers, parents, and students. In the future, teachers will use this proficiency scale with their students as part of their conversations about a student’s learning progress. This is meant to help teachers and students identify skills to practice where extra support is needed and skill areas in which the student is ready for extended learning. This proficiency scale is numerical 1-4.
