The Importance of Students’ Report Cards

The students’ report card (สมุดรายงานประจำตัว, which is the term in Thai) is a written representation of the students’ performance in class. Usually sent home at the end of a grading period, the student’s report cards enable teachers, students, and parents to follow the students’ performance throughout the year. This also encourages students to correct study habits, adjust their behaviours, and make positive changes to achieve academic excellence.

Parent Involvement 

Parents getting involved ensure that kids are reminded of the value of school and why they must do well at it. Parents get involved in their children’s academic lives when they receive school report cards to review and sign. This way, parents get to know their child’s academic achievements as well as their in-class behaviours.

Communication Link 

Students’ report card links teachers, students, and parents. Everyone involved gets the same information and understand the student’s performance in school. This way, information is consistently passed between all parties and supports communication between teachers, students, and parents to the advantage of the student’s education.

Student Awareness 

School report cards enable students to see how they fare in class as well as the teacher’s remarks of them. With school report cards, students are rewarded with positive comments and reminded of their improvement needs, thereby encouraging them to make positive changes to improve their performance.

Teacher Tracking

Students’ report cards enable teachers to track their students’ performance in class reports and understand the students’ strengths and challenges. In doing so, educators can come up with approaches to support the students to perform better. For instance, the students’ performance after the grading period may suggest that most students in the classroom fare poorly in math. The teacher can then determine the best ways to readdress the lesson with the class.
