Report Cards

I started filling in grades on the sixth graders' report cards. They are pretty much finished, except for a few who turned in late assignments that I still need to grade. I am pleased, but not thrilled, by the grades. In each class, a handful of students achieved 90 or better, and a handful failed (below 75% in our school). That means my results approximate a bell curve, which is not a specific aim in my grading, but makes me feel like the grades are reasonable. I would actually be perfectly happy if a larger number of students received 90 or above and fewer failed, as long as I felt that they had all done good work on challenging assignments.

Thank goodness for having today off and catching up on some work!
