Common Core and State Standards Tracking Just Became Easier with MMS For Schools™
Use MMS to define Standards, associate Standards with courses and assignments, grade Standards, and produce Standards-Based Report Cards. Grades for the Standard may be manually entered or computed automatically by the grade book. Final grades for the Standard may be manually entered or calculated based on:
- Power Law
- Most Recent Assignments
- Simple Average
- Manual Determination
Because Standards measure specific skills, Standards grades provide administrators, teachers, students, and parents with a more detailed picture of a student’s strengths and weaknesses than the traditional overall average grade for a subject. For example, instead of a B in Mathematics, a student may receive individual performance evaluations against twelve skills that a student at his/her grade level are expected to master in Mathematics.
Computer Resources LLC, a long-time developer of K-12 student information system software, is pleased to announce that their flagship software, MMS Generations, with its integrated Teacher Grade Book, now facilitates the tracking and analysis of state or school-defined standards as a measure of a student’s competency in any given subject.
Students of yesteryear brought home report cards displaying a range of grades from A to F to demonstrate their knowledge. Today’s 21st century learners are held to a more precise standard.
Standards are definitions of skills that students must master in a given subject area. The skills and expected degree of mastery varies from grade level to grade level. Because standards measure specific skills, standards grades provide administrators, teachers, students, and parents with a more detailed picture of a student’s strengths and weaknesses than the traditional overall average grade for a subject. Standards tracking is part of a growing trend in education, where the analysis of data generated within the classroom is a key element in measuring and demonstrating success for students and teachers alike. MMS now makes it easy to link specific standards with courses and assignments, automatically average standards grades using widely accepted methods (including Power Law), generate standards-based report cards, and more.
