SAM: Your Parent-Teacher Conference Toolkit

Posted by Scott Toonder - 3 Months and 10 Days Ago



The data that is constantly being collected and analyzed within the READ 180 classroom can transform parent-teacher night into a truly powerful experience... especially if you know what to have handy.

Here are just a few reports that you may want to have printed out.

Progress to College and Career Report:

Shows:  Lexile progress over time.
 
Power:  Is visual proof of how a student is progressing and, perhaps more importantly, how much farther they have to go.  It can be a great motivator for parent and child alike.

----------

Student Diagnostic Report:

Shows:  A breakdown of the student's areas of weakness in each Zone of the instructional software.  

Power:  Shows parents the data-driven power of READ 180, and therefore can help make believers and supporters out of them.  And it gives parents things to focus on when working at home.  

----------

Recommended Reading Report:

Shows:  Books within the student's Lexile range, categorized by topics the student has chosen. 

Power:  Gives parents a list to draw from went buying or borrowing books for children at home.  And it gives a good sense of the types of books within the student's independent reading level.

----------

Student Reading Report:

Shows:  Grades in both the instructional software and the Reading Counts! quizzes

Power:  Shows parents student performance and where any skill (or motivational!) problem areas might be.

I am reading this on a break during parent-teacher conferences! I agree, these are perfect reports to give parents a concrete snapshot of where their student is. Thank you for the post about these great tools!
