The fourth level of the five-level curriculum structure for FCPS Program of Studies (curriculum, course or grade, standard, benchmark, indicator).
A list of comments available for the progress report that have been revised, reviewed, and edited by classroom teachers and content specialists.
Assessments typically administered before or during the learning process to provide information about what students know and can do. Teachers use insights from this process to design the next steps in instruction.
The new student information system that will replace SASI— Integrated Student Information System.
Demonstration of the acquisition of specific skills, knowledge, content, or process.
Information that will accompany the progress report that outlines specific grade level concepts and skills for each progress report standard.
Progress Report standards
The "big ideas" that are taught in each content area. The standards contained in the Commonwealth of Virginia's Standards of Learning (SOL) and in FCPS' Program of Study (POS) are very specific and the set of standards is very comprehensive. If FCPS included all standards in the POS, the progress report would be quite lengthy and not user-friendly for parents. Instead, FCPS correlated everything taught in our curriculum to the progress report standards for reporting to parents. The standards are the same for all grade levels, kindergarten-6.
Program of Studies (POS)
FCPS approved content taught for each subject and grade level.
A scoring matrix for performance tasks, projects, or essays that includes specific descriptions of performance of a given task at several different levels of quality. Teachers use rubrics to evaluate student performance on performance tasks. Students are often given the rubric, or may even help develop it, so they know in advance what they are expected to do (from the ASCD—formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development—Lexicon of Learning).
Expectations for student learning and achievement.
The current student information system—School Administrative Student Information.
Assessments administered after instruction to determine what students have learned.
