How teachers can help families understand their child’s progress

Learning Heros logo

This report by Learning Heros describes strategies that teachers in grades 3-8 can use to help families truly understand their child’s progress and grade level standards.

Nearly 9 in 10 families, regardless of race, income, geography, and education levels, believe their child is achieving at or above grade level. Yet national data indicates only about one third of students actually perform at that level.

When parents are exposed to a few pieces of understandable and relevant information together, including a report card grade, state test results, and a school performance rating, their thinking shifts – from nearly 9 in 10 believing that their child is at or above grade level before exposure, to just over half (52%). Parents deserve all the pieces of the puzzle regarding their children’s performance presented in a way that’s both clear and actionable.
