An Evaluation of Computerized Report Cards in Vancouver Secondary Schools.
Durward, M. Lynne; Ellis, E. N.
Seven Vancouver secondary schools presently using Computerized report cards participated in the study. Parents and school staff members were administered questionnaires regarding the computer generated reports. The study concluded that a report of academic progress was the primary concern of parents and 77.4% of the parents were generally satisfied with the computerized report cards employing the existing system of using letter grades and teachers' comments by subject although both parents (54%) and school staff (84.8%) wanted provision on the report card for two or more comments per course. Teachers and administrators believed that more students received comments under the computerized system than under the manual system, but that the range of comments was narrower, and the number of comments per course for each student was less with computerized report cards.
