Why are report cards important for a school or college?

A student report card is the best way to communicate the student's progress, statistics and teacher concerns to parents. A report card acts as an official document which gives the student's performance statistics at a glance. By reading a report card one can understand a lot of things about the student such as their interests, likes, dislikes, inclination and much more. Therefore a well designed report card is of utmost importance for any educational institute.

Creating report cards for students can be a daunting task for teachers. There are numerous challenges faced by teachers and educators while creating report cards. The format used in the report card makes all the difference. Choosing a format that communicates the right amount of information to the parents is important. Most of the student report card formats available on the internet are very complex, they make things even more difficult for educators and parents.

Many times the teachers have a hard time doing all the manual work as a prerequisite for the reports. The huge amount of manual calculations and data entry are time consuming and tedious. Long and mundane student report card formats do not communicate the information in the right way. Parents find it hard to make any meaningful information out of the data presented in the report card. Such report formats lack elements that can portray information at a glance and parents are deprived of getting meaningful insights.

How to create report cards that are informative, concise and attractive?

A perfect report card should not be too long and dumped with data. An ideal report card should have elements that are easy to read. Meaningful insights should be easily inferred from a report card. A report card should have the common student details such as personal, class details. Along with usual school or college information, student marks, a student report card should have graphical elements such as graphs and charts.

Educators should include graphs, pie charts, line charts to effectively communicate data that matters to parents. Graphs can be used to show student progress over time. Comparison with the class average, toppers. Charts can be used to display distribution of marks over subjects. Bars and charts can be used to indicate the level achieved, level of interest in a particular subject or activity. A report card should include detailed teacher comments or remarks for subjects and activities which can put teacher feedback into words.
