What is Standards Referenced Reporting (SRR)?
Standards Referenced Reporting (SRR) is a research-based approach to assessing and reporting student achievement. SRR focuses on what students know and are able to do. Teachers teach, assess and provide constant feedback to students on where they are currently in their learning, where they need to go to meet each standard, and how they will reach each standard. Interventions and enrichment are provided to students based on where they are with their learning and understanding. When a student struggles to reach proficiency, MCSD staff intervene on the student’s behalf to provide interventions and additional opportunities to learn and relearn the standards. If a student demonstrates proficiency on a standard prior to teaching and learning occurring, MCSD staff provide enrichment opportunities to enhance student application of the standard.
