GKIDS Rubric
Mrs. Love recently had a parent conference, in which the purpose was to explain GKIDS and the Kindergarten report card. Mrs. Love explained the student's score with her parents, and the mother requested to obtain the GKIDS rubrics, so that she knows what her daughter will have to demonstrate in order to receive a "Meets" in each category. Would it be appropriate and/or ethical for Mrs. Love to give her access to these rubrics?

Giving the parent access to the rubric would be appropriate considering we need to clearly relay expectations to students and parents on grades. Students must understand the assessment domains and criteria to know what kind of work they are expected to perform. Furthermore, parents that are informed can work with their children to ensure that they are meeting the standard.

I agree with this case study. I will utilize this information once I become a teacher.

Absolutely! In older grades, even as low as third, it's important that the students know what is being expected of them. Granted, in kindergarten they might not understand, but you never know. Always let your parents know what your expectations for your students are. If this includes giving them rubrics then by all means allow your parents to have access to anything you can. The only thing I would recommend you check it whether or not GKIDS allows their rubrics to be given out. Some major tests have rules against things like that, but if there is nothing written on the rubric or in the information go for it. If nothing else, consult your team leader or an AP and see if you can get any information from them regarding the distribution of rubrics.

I think Mrs.Love should give all the parents access to these rubrics to insure her students and parents are both hold responsible for their achievement.

I think it would be appropriate AFTER you gave the initial GKIDS evaluation. This way you have a true reading on what the students prior knowledge is. After the assessment, I would definitely think it would be appropriate to allow parents to look at the rubric. Kudos to the parents for wanting to help!

There may be many more parents like the one that you speak of. They wish to know exactly what is expected of their kindergarten children, especially since it has changed so very much since the parents were kindergarten age. You may want to consider hosting a parent information meeting at the beginning of the year, just before or just after the first report card is issued. With your teammates, and an instructional coach if you have one, you could explain the report card, share some sample rubrics, and provide additional online resources that help parents to understand. You could host one during the morning hours as long as coverage has been gotten for your classroom and then offer another in the evening for working parents.
