Skills Based Reporting
Olympia High School has begun piloting Skills Based Reporting in several classes during the 2016-2017 school year.  Beginning in 2017-2018 many courses will be Skills Based in their designation and by 2018-2019 all courses will be.  So why Skills Based?  At Olympia High School, we believe the following when it comes to assessment for learning:
  • Demonstrate consistent, accurate, and meaningful mastery of learning.
  • Support student mastery through frequent, descriptive and relevant feedback.
  • Communicate progress to all stakeholders.
  • Provide information to students for self-evaluation and growth.
  • Assist in planning for differentiation among students.
  • Assist teachers in reflecting on their effectiveness of instruction.
  • Document students’ learner characteristics.
