STANDARDS-BASED REPORTING

For each content area (English Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies), learning goals have been created based on state and national standards. The learning goals permit teacher assessment and student demonstration of specific goals at 4 levels.

4.0

  • Above and beyond

  • 3.0 content - apply in new situation

  • Increased level of difficulty

3.0

  • Target learning goal

  • Based on Missouri Grade Level Expectations & Liberty district curriculum

2.0

  • Simpler, but important content, processes, or skills

  • Academic Vocabulary

1.0

  • Making minimal progress toward meeting the standard

  • Students need help to reach the level of understanding

PRINCIPLES OF LEARNING

The Principles of Learning are a belief system that serve as the foundation of student learning in Liberty. The principles guide instructional decisions made by teachers, encourage student engagement in learning, and assist teachers in offering specific feedback to students and families.

  • Students learn in different ways.
  • Students learn in different time frames.
  • Mistakes are necessary and productive in learning.
  • Problem solving and critical thinking are integral parts of learning.
  • Students must have ownership in their own learning and data.
  • Students must understand the purpose of their learning.
  • Students need more frequent and specific feedback.
  • Students’ scoring is based on achievement of a learning goal, not attitude or effort.

If the learning goal is to ride a bicycle independently, the target learning is reflected in Level 3. In order for students to meet a Level 3, learning may begin at a Level 2 where the skill and/or academic vocabulary is introduced. The expectation for students is to progress to the Level 3 through teacher instruction, feedback, and student ownership in the learning.

The Level 4 indicates to students and parents that application of the learning goal is going above and beyond the Level 3. For example, not only is the child independently riding a bike successfully, but he/she can also perform bike stunts. It is important to remember that Level 3 indicates that the student is successfully meeting the content goal and achieving grade level expectations.

The Level 1.0 indicates that the student needs help to reach the level of understanding.

According to the Principles of Learning, student achievement is expected to occur in different time frames. While some students will display understanding of a skill from the beginning of learning, other students will need more instruction, practice, and time to meet the learning goal. This belief in student learning means that it is acceptable to begin at a level that requires support and progress at the student’s own pace towards the goal.

Your goal is to ride your bike by yourself.
