Moving to Real Time Reporting

Access our Parent Guide to Real-Time Reporting

In 2018/19, 11 schools across five areas in the jurisdiction were selected to prototype RTR, which provides parents and students with ongoing feedback throughout the year. Nine additional schools have elected to participate in Year 2 of the cohort, which also aims to investigate how RTR can better inform teacher practice while providing timely performance information to parents and students. Beginning Sept. 1, 2019, this prototype will include an additional 15 schools from K to Gr. 8/9.

What does RTR look like?

  • Teachers assess a student’s level of understanding of curricular outcomes/learning targets.
  • Students have the entire year to learn the curricular outcomes, which supports the long-range development of a learner.
  • Evidence of student learning is continuously demonstrated through both PowerSchool’s Public Portal and myBlueprint, a student-driven online portfolio.
  • One summary report card will be published in June, as opposed to every 90 days like a traditional report card.
  • Teachers can use early assessment results to improve instruction strategies and student learning.
  • Based on feedback during Year 1 of the prototype, RVS made significant changes to what users will see in PowerSchool.

Where did report cards go?

Schools prototyping RTR have eliminated the practice of issuing physical report cards three times a year. Instead, a real-time assessment summary will be accessible to parents and students all-year round via the PowerSchool Public Portal. Parents can access a digital version of this summary by logging into PowerSchool and clicking on the “Standards Grades” tab. Printed report cards will be issued once a year, at the end of June.

What is myBlueprint?

myBlueprint online portfolios engage students in the process of learning and self-discovery. Students can use their portfolios to set goals, reflect on their abilities, interests and passions and document what they discover about themselves using pictures, videos, audio and/or journals. A stream of posts allows family members to view the student’s classroom activity and comment on their progress.

How can parents support their child?

Parents can gain deep insights into their child’s learning by regularly reviewing both the myBlueprint portfolio and the real-time assessment summary in PowerSchool. Parents also are encouraged to support the concept of risk-taking and mistake making at home by asking questions like:

  • What mistakes did you make today?
  • How did you grow from them?
  • What learning targets are you currently struggling with and what support do you need to be successful?
  • What would you do differently if you were to complete that project again?
  • Where are you now and how will you improve?

Accessing PowerSchool’s Public Portal

Parents with an existing PowerSchool account can access the Public Portal using the same login credentials at
https://ps.rockyview.ab.ca/public. Schools also will be sending out letters in September with instructions on how to create an account and view assessment information.
