Standards-Based Learning System (SBLS) - Page Under Construction

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
