    Assessments and Report Cards
    Due to the nature of the language teaching in elementary school, Magnet language teachers do not assign numerical grades when giving a report card grade. What appears on your child’s HISD report card is the student’s conduct grade in their classes. In an effort to communicate your child’s progress in Chinese class, the Magnet department has designed a rubric which outlines various levels of proficiency in the foreign language.
    The Progress Report Card (twice a year – December and May)
    What makes this rubric unique is that each student evaluates him or herself by circling any of the four flower levels, from the underground seed to a full flower in bloom. The student circles a choice for each category based on how they interpret their own progress. The far right column is the teacher’s evaluation of the student. Please note, that in the lower grades, student work is mostly oral participation and listening skills. The upper grades involve oral, listening and written work.
    * Listening and comprehension: This is how much the student understands when spoken to in the target language. In most cases, children understand more than what they can say in a foreign language.
    * Oral Proficiency: This is how much the student can say in the target language.
    * Class Participation: The student is evaluated based on his participation be it individual (repeating words when told, singing along, raising hand to respond …) and involvement in group work.
    * Assessments: The student is evaluated both by oral and written exams, formal and informal.
    * Organization: All students learn that coming to class with their supply bag and pencil is being prepared. Students in the upper grades are taught how to maintain a neat and orderly notebook. Returning their language folder is also taken into consideration.
    * Conduct: This is the grade that appears on the student’s report card.
