I'd like to take a second to show you (parents and students) how to use the standards-based system to your advantage. For example, you might be saying, "So what if I demonstrated a '2' in something? What does that even mean, and what are some steps I could take right now to improve?" Or what if you've demonstrated a '3', but lately you've been feeling bored at school? What can you do to challenge yourself?
Please take five minutes to view the video below and learn how to use this feedback-rich system to your advantage. When you're done, don't hesitate to comment on this post with any feedback you might have about how the system is working (or isn't working) for you so far... or maybe how you plan to use the system to your advantage now that you've viewed this video. Thank you ahead of time for your feedback. It will help me learn and do better in the future.
