Determining the Success of Narrative Report Cards.
Hall, Kristy
This study examined the success of narrative report cards, an alternative method of reporting student progress, at an elementary school in Virginia. Surveys about narrative reports were sent to parents of first and second graders, and two teachers at each grade level were interviewed about the reports. Results indicated that both parents and teachers preferred narrative reports to grades because they were more personal, less competitive, and conveyed more information to parents about their children's progress. A series of appendixes includes: (1) a list of alternatives to traditional grading reports; (2) a set of sample narrative report forms; (3) a copy of the parent survey used in the study; (4) results of the study presented in graph format; and (5) transcripts of the interviews with each of the four teachers. A list of nine references is included. (BC)
