Student Academic Record

The Student Academic Record domain models the various kinds of student performance reporting.

  • A student transcript contains information about course-level grades and credits. A student transcript consists of a StudentAcademicRecord associated with each Session which has a CourseTranscript for each course taken.
  • Report cards contain information for grading period grades and competencies. A report card consists of a ReportCard entity for each GradingPeriod. A Grade is associated with each Section entity.
  • A gradebook contains grades and competencies for classroom quizzes, tests, homework, and projects. An assignment in a Gradebook is represented as a GradebookEntry. Each student’s score for that entry is a StudentGradebookEntry which can be a grade or a CompetencyLevelDescriptor.

Student Academic Record, Student Transcript Model

A Student has a ReportCard for each GradingPeriod. A Grade is associated with each Section. For early grade levels, a StudentCompetencyObjective is assigned to CompetencyObjectives and a StudentLearningObjective is assigned to LearningObjectives, for example, assigning a “Satisfactory” for “Participates in class discussions." The StudentLearningObjective is either associated to a Section or a Program.

Student Academic Record, Report Card Model

An individual assignment in a gradebook is represented as a GradebookEntry. A GradebookEntry may be mapped to LearningStandards or a LearningObjective. Each student’s score for that entry is a StudentGradebookEntry which can be a grade or a CompetencyLevel.
