Report cards have become a waste of time. Due to the increase of students per class, teachers have been unable to catch up to the needs of each student.
Another reason I find that report cards are useless is because marks are already recorded online and can be viewed at ease on a computer. The only difference is that there is a comment attached to a report card. However, the “individualized” comments are a waste of space because they lack substance. Sometimes, the comments are hilarious to read because it talks about how well one did on a presentation when there weren’t any presentations during the course.
It just doesn’t make sense to force teachers to complete report cards anymore.
