OASD Middle Schools Move to Proficiency Scoring

This is PART TWO in a series of communications and resources to help parents adjust to our new progress reporting system.

What will grades look like in middle school this year?
All middle schools in the Oshkosh school district have moved to proficiency scoring this year.  That means parents will want to become parent observers in Canvas in order to interpret grades that will be posted in Infinite Campus. Unlike the elementary, middle schools in Oshkosh use Canvas as their learning management system and gradebook, so assessment details can be seen under Canvas grades. 
Parents typically would see one letter grade in Canvas or Infinite Campus. Now parents will see a proficiency score for each course indicating a level of proficiency, advanced, proficient, developing, or beginning, based on achievement of course standards. No matter what proficiency level shows up for the course, parents will want to go into Canvas to view grades. The assignments listed in grades will show a detailed pattern of learning throughout the units of study. These assignments will be a true indicator of how well students know the content in each course.  The assignment details will contain information on expectations for students to be proficient. Teachers will provide detailed feedback in many different forms, oftentimes visible on comments or rubrics in Canvas. Achieving proficiency means that the student has mastered the skills needed for that standard. 
PART THREE next week:  Watch for a video of how the Canvas grades view will communicate proficiencies on important activities to students and parents.
