Standards-Based Learning

A standards-based learning system is built around several powerful ideas:

  • All classroom instruction and assessments are aligned to BSD Learning Targets
  • Multiple opportunities are provided for students to demonstrate growth and learning
  • Formative assessment practices provide feedback focused on student growth and support improved instruction
  • Consistent scoring guides (rubrics)  determine a student's level of learning and indicate what a student must do to improve
  • Regular reporting of progress on each learning target occurs
  • Academics and behaviors are reported separately
  • The highest value is placed on teacher judgment and expertise
