Communicating test score results of a student who is performing below the expected proficiency level
Focus on improvement methods
It's a sensitive meeting, no one is happy here. So, you'd better pay more attention on following thing.
Suggest what parents can do outside classroom.
● Talk about the kid’s progress.● Give honest but constructive feedback on assessment outcomes.● Treat each other as integral parts of the planning and decision making team.
Provide ideas to parents on how they can improve their child's literacy skills at home
● Tell parents your teaching plan for the kid.● Encourage and maintain regular interaction between the school and families.● Ask parents to set One Small Goal that can be achieved every day to support their child grow and set up a procedure for follow up.
● Suggest activities to do at home to help improve their child’s understanding of schoolwork. ● Point out academic strengths and weaknesses and how they can help address areas of concern outside of the classroom - particularly if assessment results point to specific things they can do.
● Encourage them to have a quiet, comfortable place for their child to study at home, help them understand the importance of providing books and magazines for their child to read at home. ● Suggest them read to the kids, listen to the child read, and make reading a regular activity at home.
