• Encore grades are reported every nine weeks on the report card!

    Parents can log into Home Access To view your progress on a weekly basis.  Since encores work on a 5 day rotation, I will update student grades by the end of every day 5.  That will be student deadline for assignment make up.  Due dates are indicated on Home Access per assignment. 

    Please see my page for more information regarding missed classes:  "I Missed Keyboarding Class" (see link to the left in green) 

    Report Card Indicators:

    E=EXTENDING

    P=PROFICIENT

    D=DEVELOPING

    5th & 6th Grade ONLY Understanding GWAM Assessments on the report card:

    **ACCURACY (errors) comes before GWAM (speed)**  I use the analogy of pitching in baseball/softball:  The ball must first go over the plate (accuracy) and THEN worry about throwing faster (speed). **

    5th Grade GWAM Goal is to key a 2 minute assessment with 6 or less errors and 20 GWAM (Gross Words A Minute)

    E = any GWAM above 25 with 6 or less errors

    P = 20-24 GWAM with 6 or less errors

    D = Any GWAM with OVER 6 errors

    6th Grade GWAM Goal is to key a 2 minute assessment with 6 or less errors and 25 GWAM (Gross Words A Minute)

    E = any GWAM above 30 with 6 or less errors

    P = 25-29 GWAM with 6 or less errors

    D = Any GWAM with OVER 6 errors
