In 2011-2012, Mendham Township Elementary School implemented a new standards-based grading and reporting system. We will be assessing and reporting levels of proficiency on specific knowledge and skill standards rather than utilizing traditional letter grades.

Teachers will gather data from classroom experiences, assignments, tests, and projects that will provide evidence as to the level of proficiency on each indicator. This information will be shared through a new report card format. This system will better inform families on student progress and help teachers tailor their lessons to meet the needs of their students. In place of letter grades or numbers, levels of proficiency will be indicated using the following system:

Report Card templates are available on the website under the “Report Cards” link.

These templates provide the standard indicators on which students will be assessed.
