Project: Redesign the Report Card

by Liz Dwyer

October 10, 2011

With the fall academic semester in full swing, schools will be sending report cards home to anxious students and their families all too soon. A single letter or number grade rarely provides in-depth insight into a student's strengths and weaknesses. What's the difference between an A and a B in math? If a student earns a C, what does she need to work on? Should report cards include information about effort, attendance, homework completion, class participation, and/or standardized test results?

For this project, we want you to create a visually appealing report card that informs, inspires, and gives context to student achievement.

the OBJECTIVE


Via images and words, redesign the report card.

the ASSIGNMENT

Design a report card that informs, inspires, and gives context to student achievement. Report cards can be for any grade level and can incorporate whatever you see fit.

the REQUIREMENTS


Submit your design here—as a JPG image, 450 pixels wide, and less than 1 MB in size. We'll contact the winners and the runners-up for higher resolution images. The deadline is noon PST on Friday, October 14.

The winning entry will be selected by GOOD's staff and win a GOOD T-shirt and year free subscription to GOOD Magazine.
