107 Report Card Comments to Use and Adapt

how to write a report on students performance

Reviewed by Sarah Tino, M.Ed.

See your students' performance at a push of a button

With Prodigy's reports, teachers can easily track student progress and see their strengths and growth opportunities – all while the student has fun playing Prodigy Math!

Learning skills (positive comments)

Learning skills (needs improvement), addition and subtraction, skip counting, place value, comparing numbers, addition with regrouping.

Reading responses

Reading comprehension, response journal, note taking, distance learning.

Just about every teacher agrees: report card comments are important to provide insights and next steps to students and families. But there are few who actually look forward to writing them.

Because every instructor knows working under tight deadlines to create upwards of 20 unique and detailed reports at the end of the year or term isn’t exactly straightforward (or particularly fun). That's especially true in the era of distance learning.

And while no one at your school knows your students better than you do, writing valuable report card comments for each of them can be a huge challenge.

That’s why we created a list of 107 sample report card comments — starters to help you find ideas, inspiration, and insights while writing your own report cards.

The 107 report card comments in this list will help you:

Report card comment starters

You'll notice that the report card comments below can act as a springboard for more fully developed ones. But don't worry, using them you'll be able to take some of these one-liners and turn them into insightful and actionable next steps!

For example, you'll be able to take a 1st grade number sense comment like "Your child is able to add and subtract numbers up to 20 using various manipulatives" and transform it into:

Your child is able to add and subtract numbers up to 20 using various manipulatives. This was evident when he was working independently to solve a real-world problem by adding toys in the classroom toy bin. As a next step, they should continue to add to larger numbers to encourage his skills. You can support him by asking him to add his own toy piles at home.

Or taking a responsibility-related learning skill comment from "Your child is able to take responsibility for her own actions both in and out of the classroom" to:

Your child is able to take responsibility for her own actions both in and out of the classroom. She often checks her agenda and day planner to make sure she has all of the necessary materials to complete work at home before leaving. During indoor recess, she takes time to tidy up everything she was playing with.

Notice the difference?

Compared to a single number or letter grade, report card comments can provide even more value to your students and their families. In other words, a number or letter or grade captures the what , while an accompanying comment captures the how .

Depending on the age group or grade level you teach, a letter or grade letter might be enough. However, research in Phi Delta Kappan, the professional journal for educators, suggests:

Comments that identify what students did well, what improvements they need to make, and how to make those improvements, provided with sensitivity to important contextual elements, can guide students on their pathways to learning success and ensure that all learn excellently.

Tips for teachers to write more effective student report card comments

1. give yourself extra time and start writing comments early.

Teacher at desk writing with paper and pen.

Somewhere around the halfway point to your deadline for report cards, you make your best effort to use time at the end of each week to reflect — and jot down notes — about your students’ performance and class week.

What are their strengths and weaknesses? How are their social skills developing with classmates? How is their class participation - are they an enthusiastic learner? Have they shown great improvement in one particular subject area? Are homework assignments getting done? Have any new challenges come up that affect learning?

Even just a few minutes of note-taking in the weeks preceding report card deadlines will help to ease your stress when the time comes to write your final comments.

Moreover, having a dated log of information detailed throughout the school year will help you remember how students are performing throughout each week, which can be valuable information come parent-teacher conference time.

This will also help to engage and reassure parents who want relevant and detailed commentary about their child’s performance at school.

2. Use free, curriculum-aligned apps for teachers

Use Prodigy to write insightful report cards with a minimum of hassle. Prodigy Math is an engaging math adventure for students where success depends on correctly answering adaptive math questions. 

As students play, you’ll get insights into:

Use one of Prodigy’s eight reports to track student progress throughout the year. When the time comes to write report card comments, you’ll have detailed reports on all your students’ achievements.

Just getting started with Prodigy? No problem! The first time students explore the world of Prodigy Math, they’ll start completing the Placement Test — without even knowing. Once they’re done, you’ll have a snapshot of the grade level they’re at, what they know and specific skills they still need to work on.

Spend more time teaching and less time grading

Prep for standardized tests, deliver adaptive skill practice or test students on a new skill — all while they play Prodigy Math, Prodigy English, or both!

3. Be encouraging, informational and professional

Teacher writing at desk.

Although every report card cannot be glowingly positive, do strive to write in an encouraging and informational tone. As you write constructive report card comments, use encouraging language that focuses on the student’s opportunity for improvement.

For example, instead of describing a student struggling with listening as a “bad listener,” remark that the student “would benefit from listening more carefully.”

If appropriate, frame a negative comment in terms of what students are doing well -- and consider how this more successful characteristic can help them bolster performance in other areas.

4. Use a consistent format

Lead your report card comments with the positive comments, followed by areas that need more attention.

Choosing the right format for reporting information will simplify the entire process, while resulting in a clearer and more organized final product.

If you are unclear about your school’s format for report cards, request samples or consult with other teachers or staff members to clarify.

5. Be honest

Being open and honest about a student’s performance requires tact and consideration with regard to how you  express  those comments. Be transparent, and remain mindful that your goal is to improve your students’ learning experience.

Openness and honesty are key to ensuring that experience is the best it can be. If possible, discuss what  intervention strategies  you can use to help improve the student’s learning outcomes. 

As elementary teacher Donna Donaghue remarks in her book  A Guide for Beginning Elementary Teachers: Getting Hired and Staying Inspired :

If there is a problem, most parents will be grateful to you for telling them and will want to help you correct it as soon as possible. Many problems that show up at school are also problems noticed at home, so your comments will not surprise parents. Ideally, at some point prior to receiving the progress report, parents have already discussed the problem with you.

6. Move on if you get stuck

how to write a report on students performance

If you get stuck completing the comments for a particular student, move on to your other students and return to it later. You will likely have more trouble completing comments for students who have multiple areas needing further improvement and attention.

Feel free to move on and return to those students periodically or as you find the right language to express your insights.

7. Keep parents and guardians in mind

Teacher sitting with student in class.

While every report card comment is ultimately about your student, think of your students’ parents or guardians as much as possible and offer suggestions for their participation.

In fact, if you can, keep parents up to date on an ongoing basis. This will help ensure they don't get caught off guard by any of your comments.

As you make note of your students’ strengths and weaknesses, endeavor to include practical insights into how parents can involve and support their child at home. If possible, make reference to how you use  differentiated instruction  to support the student in question.

Simple examples of tips for parents include:

As high school educator and teaching comprehension expert Anne Goudvis writes in her book Strategies That Work:

It is important that you include the parents in your comment so they know the child’s education is a joint mission. Sometimes you need to sound firm so that parents know you need their help and that you will not allow their child to continue inappropriate behavior.

8. Try not to repeat yourself

Teacher writing report card comments on desk.

It is unlikely that your students or parents will compare their report card comments, but it is still a best practice to aim for unique commentary for each student that reflects each, individual learning outcome.

9. Proofread, even if you don’t want to

Report card time is perhaps your busiest period of the year, and it is understandable that you want to simply get them over with.

Despite this, you should make sure to double check all your comments before hitting print and handing them out. All your communications to parents are a reflection of you as a teacher, and should mirror the care and attention you show your students in class.

10. Notify parents

how to write a report on students performance

Make use of your school’s parent portal or email system to let parents know — as needed — that report card time is coming up.

This will help parents be prepared, and will also ensure that any important questions they may have are addressed before the final report cards are delivered.

Did you know?

If you're using Prodigy Math in your classroom, you can connect parents to follow their child's progress. A free parent account comes with a monthly report card and insights into classroom learning, helping them stay informed of how their child is doing in class. They can also send their child an encouraging message to cheer their child on as they play and practice skills in Prodigy!

11. Use specific examples with the help of direct observation

Student and teacher working together in class.

Record and use classroom anecdotes in your assessments. No matter how involved you are in your students’ progress, it can still be difficult to produce specific examples related to their performance if you haven’t recorded them along the way.

When you notice a positive or negative skill, ability, strength, or weakness in a class activity or assignment, be sure to note it down so that you may refer to it in your report card comments. Likewise, consider noting a sample of a student’s work every week or two.

To help with ease of access, keep ongoing files of this work in a personal folder or use a digital tool such as a Google Doc.

Putting this into practice is a time-saver and helps prevent last-minute stress. A strategy like direct observation and note-taking (as soon as possible) is far more reliable than trying to recall information and behaviors from weeks or months prior.

12. Try using tech to help

Writer's block happens to all of us, including teachers. If the report card comments in this article didn't help, fear not, there are still plenty of tools and resources to give you a helping hand.

One new option for teachers is using artificial intelligence (AI) to assist with report card ideas. For example, teachers can use tools like ChatGPT to generate examples for their specific needs.

When using chat technology, try to keep your prompt concise and easy to follow. A good template prompt to follow is:

"Write [number] report card comments for students studying [subject] in [grade]."

Here are some more specific examples to help get you started:

Alternatively, you can use spreadsheets and report card builders to manually piece together a report card based on a template of comments.

Important tip: When using AI chat technology, make sure you don't submit any personal details about you or your students. Instead let the tool use a placeholder like "Student".

Key considerations for report card comments at the end of the year

Report card comments should aim to deliver feedback to students and parents that is  personalized, detailed,  and  meaningful .

Writing report card comments doesn’t have to be stressful. Use these strategies to create livelier, more meaningful evaluations.

Effective report card comments emphasize and discuss:

Effective report card comments are personalized – customized to each, individual student – and discuss:

Effective report card comments are expressed with clear and simple phrasing, using:

Report Card Comments: Final Thoughts

how to write a report on students performance

Common Sense Education observes that "effective parent communication is crucial in helping students learn. But, for busy teachers it can be challenging just to keep up... Transparency and equity are key to managing any communication between home and school."

Personalized report card comments that are clear, precise, and meaningful are essential for informing students and their parents about what students have learned, what their strengths are and how they can effectively progress.

Among the pressure and deadlines of writing report cards, it can be helpful to keep these key goals in mind.

Get inspired by the report card comment examples — and strategies for success — above to ensure that precision, clarity, and meaning shine through in your report card comments.

When it comes time to hand out your report cards, you can do so with the full confidence that you are doing yourself — and each of your students — the justice your hard work deserves.

Student progress report: monitor students performance and progress.

Measuring students' performance or progress is not only beneficial for students, but also for teachers who have taught students for many years. Understanding students and their motivations for studying are essential in order to bring about significant improvement. Student progress report will allow the faculty to analyze and determine what needs to be changed in the teaching system. This will enable them to guide students in learning better.

Here are seven ways that student records or student progress report can be used to improve learning.

1. Student Progress Report assesses both teacher and student The teacher can better understand each student and get to know them personally by keeping a student progress report. The teacher can monitor the student's progress to see if they are making significant gains. This allows the teacher to learn about students' weaknesses and personality traits. This information will help students, teachers, parents, and other people to concentrate on the weaker parts of the student and less on the stronger subjects. Each student's data is unique, so it would be helpful for teachers to know each student individually in order to provide accurate feedback. The student's track record can impact their growth over the years.

Teachers have to keep track of every student each month, which can be a burden and a time-consuming task. The faculty may miss some students and run the risk of making mistakes. Teachers can use Study'n'Learn's performance and progress analysis to quickly see how students are performing. They can also give feedback that is specific to the student's learning style.

Teachers can also analyze how well their students do each semester. This allows them to determine if there are any improvements that need to be made in their teaching methods, thus improving their performance.

2. Student Progress Report Encourages Students To Perform Better Teachers can track students' progress regularly to help them reward students based upon their achievements, rather than recognizing students who have excelled in class or received the highest marks. This encourages students to strive to be better than others and not just to beat the highest-scoring student.

This helps to eliminate the feeling of competition or comparison among students and encourages knowledge sharing and mutual assistance with the syllabus. This will ensure that everyone in the class does better than ever before. The students will be motivated to improve their performance by comparing their progress. The teacher can help students become better learners throughout their lives.

3. Promotion of Extracurricular Activities Can you believe how many artists have been lost due to stage fear? Students can see their overall growth by tracking their records according to how they behave, what they do well, and whether or not they participate in extracurricular activities. The teacher can encourage students to get involved in sports if they are not active. This will make it easier for students to become self-confident adults. It is possible to judge other characteristics of students such as their shyness, fear, or lack of confidence. This will help students overcome these traits early in life.

Parents can access their student tracking records to help them understand their child's school behavior. Parents can then participate in their child's school activities and help them reach their goals.

4. Encourages Collaboration Between Parents and Teachers Parents can quickly contact teachers to discuss their concerns and weaknesses by assessing the performance of their students. Teachers can communicate easily with parents about the progress of their students based on data and help them to understand their patterns in order to help the student become a better learner at school.

5. Easy communication between students and teachers Based on data from the system, teachers can easily learn about students' performance and guide them. A teacher can identify students with problems in particular subjects, and then assist them individually. This helps students to focus on their weak points.

6. Improving Schools Toward Excellence Schools can use the data from students to identify their needs and make changes. Students change every year, and old methods of teaching are no longer relevant. Schools can use the performance insights in Study'n'Learn to determine which systems and how they should be improved, thus making it easier to make learning opportunities for students.

Studynlearn's Test Analysis: You can ask students to test their knowledge and see their performance based on: How many questions were attempted How many questions were marked correct or incorrect How many videos were watched Total study time duration Not only this, but you can also track chapter-wise performance, overall subject performance, review tests, and show students correct answers with question's solution.

75 Sample Report Card Comments (Plus a Printable Version!)

Help has arrived for report card time!

"Your child has come so far in math! Focusing on two-digit addition is the next step."

Each progress report and report card provides an opportunity for you to give parents insight into their child’s performance beyond a letter or numerical grade for conduct or academics. Parents want to know how their child is doing, but they also want to know that you get their child. Report cards also help students understand what they are doing well … as well as areas where they could improve. The best way to get these points across is via meaningful comments. Need help? We’ve got 75 sample report card comments below that are sorted for students at every level: emerging, developing, proficient, and extending standards.

Tips for report card comments

Before using the list below, it’s important to know that teacher comments should be accurate, specific, and personal. The comments below are structured to allow you to fill in the blank for a particular subject or behavior, and then expand the comment. Sometimes you might require an action like a meeting with the parent. Other times you may be encouraging the student to further accelerate their studies. Either way, these sample report card comments will establish the how that attaches to the what of any number or letter grade you are documenting.

Report card comments for students whose skills are emerging:

It’s often difficult to know the cause of why a student’s skills are still emerging. In these situations, parents can often help you get to the bottom of it. Be specific about areas of difficulty in these comments, and don’t be afraid to ask for a parent’s help. Here are some ideas:

Your student may need additional assistance with [skill/subject]. Completing classwork and homework is the first step to improving.

Encouraging a phone call with parents:

There are some times when a child doesn’t turn in any work to be assessed. This situation is exceptionally difficult to handle with report card comments and should probably be mentioned ahead of time. Write something positive about the child’s personality while requesting a parent meeting or phone call. Some examples are:

Your child has a wonderful sense of humor/is helpful/is kind but fails to turn in their assignments. Let’s meet to come up with a plan to move forward.

Discussing behavior problems:

Sometimes there are behavior problems attached to emerging students. Parents want to know how their child has behaved, even if they are not surprised by the behavior. Behavior can be even more difficult to write about than academics. Be careful to avoid personal attacks or statements that can make the parent or child feel judged. For difficult behaviors, stick to statistics and/or basic descriptions. Try things like:

Your student needs to slow down in order to produce quality/carefully done work.

Report card comments for students whose skills are developing:

For students who are still developing, focus on any improvement while also providing suggestions to keep the momentum going. Try these comments:

I would like to see your student pay closer attention to [subject/topic] in order to get a better grade.

Your child is enthusiastic but still doesn’t understand [topic]. Additional work on this topic would be incredibly helpful.

Report card comments for students whose skills are proficient:

Let the parent know all the positives about their child and perhaps encourage students to dig just a little bit deeper.

I appreciate that your student does their best every single day.

With a little more effort, your child could move up to the advanced group in [the subject where effort is lacking].

Report card comments for students whose skills are extending:

Positive behaviors deserve just as much (if not more) attention as negative behaviors. These comments can be the most fun to write. Begin with a simple stem and then fill in the personal details that will make the parent smile. Example sentence starters are:

Your student avoids careless errors through attention to detail.

Showcasing students as role models:

Students who excel at helping out others deserve to have their skills mentioned in comments!

Your student relates well to classmates and is appreciative of different perspectives and experiences.

While all of these comments can supplement the grades on a report card, you don’t have to wait to use them. Sending notes home between progress reports and report cards with little comments like these can bolster the parent-teacher relationship. Write them in communication folders or on postcards for that extra school-home connection.

Report cards, which are written by these teachers, provide parents with vital information about the progress of their children in the activities carried out at school. The short remarks for students come in various formats, and usually include the report of teachers comments on students’ progress.

Inspiring Remarks For Weak Students : Teachers Comments On Students’ Progress And Performance

Inspiring Remarks For Weak Students

So as not to sound discouraging, it is usually a tough time finding the right words to use when writing a remark for a weak student. This is because the comment or remark is not meant to discourage but to encourage the students and spur them up to do more.

Teachers should, therefore, be careful when writing reports for weak students as the aim of the comment may not be actualized.

The aim is not to buttress only the weakness of the student, but to offer help to improve the situation. This will challenge the child to aim to do better. Teachers comments on students’ progress for weak students should therefore be written carefully.

Below are sample comments for students performance that will guide you in writing encouraging remarks for weak students.

2. Your child would do better in his academics if he gets more focused. He seems to be easily distracted and inattentive.

8. ____ struggles with solving problems in math. I believe that if he gives more time to his assignments and projects, he will do much better.
