107 Report Card Comments to Use and Adapt

- Tips for writing effective report cards
- Key considerations for effective end-of-year report cards
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:
- Instill a growth mindset in students
- Build stronger home-to-school connections
- Write stronger leads and use livelier language
- Choose the right phrasing when writing positive and constructive report card comments
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.
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:
- Which skills students are practicing
- How far they’ve progressed through the curriculum
- What they’ve mastered and where they need more support
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
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
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
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:
- "Encourage your child to read. It doesn't have to be on your own either. Dedicating time before bed to read together can help make it seem like less of a chore."
- "Find homework help for your child if needed. Myself and other parents who are also getting homework help for their child are great resources to get started."
- "Ensure that your child completes their homework by creating a homework routine with your family where incentives like TV or computer time come after homework."
- "Help your child with organization skills at home. If a room in your house could be tidier, try using that as an opportunity to sort things like toys or dishes and utensils."
- "Help your child prepare for math tests by focusing their skills in addition and subtraction. If they don't like studying with traditional worksheets, try a digital game-based learning tool to help get them excited about the process."
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
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
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
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:
- Write 50 report card comments for students studying social studies in 5th grade.
- Generate 20 report card remarks commending a student for a positive attitude to learning.
- Create 10 report card comments that focus on a student needing to improve their attitude to learning.
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:
- The specific, notable strengths that a student has shown and should attempt to continue to show
- The specific elements of knowledge, skills, and other outcomes recognized in the curriculum that are the most pertinent to a student’s achievement or development in the period of assessment
- The major next steps for improvement that will: identify the student’s most important learning needs, offer next steps for students and offer specific recommendations for how parents and guardians can help the student’s learning habits and skills (or the development of those habits and skills)
Effective report card comments are personalized – customized to each, individual student – and discuss:
- The student’s learning preferences, willingness to learn, and interests
- Detailed evidence of learning or skill-development gathered from in-class observations, and/or student assignments
Effective report card comments are expressed with clear and simple phrasing, using:
- An encouraging and/or positive tone
- Language that is easy to understand for both students and parents, as opposed to educational jargon used from the curriculum
Report Card Comments: Final Thoughts
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.

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 could use some extra practice in [subject]. Please have them study [skill] for [time] each night.
- Your student hasn’t yet had the chance to master [specific skill]. Review sessions are available [time frame].
- Your student may need additional assistance with [skill/subject]. Completing classwork and homework is the first step to improving.
- Your student needs more practice with [specific skill]. Please check that they have completed their homework each evening.
- We will continue focusing on reinforcing your student’s positive efforts.
- Your student should put more effort into [subject area] to avoid incorrect or incomplete assignments.
- Your student would benefit from more active participation in small-group activities.
- This semester/trimester, I would like your student to work on …
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 student is always respectful, but I am concerned about their work. When can we meet?
- Your child is inquisitive and engaged in class, but they have quite a bit of missing work. Please call me to discuss some strategies.
- 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.
- Let’s work on strategies that will help your student follow through on their assignments.
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 struggles with [DESIRED behavior]. We will continue to work on this behavior at school.
- Your child struggles with [UNDESIRABLE behavior] and needs to focus on [DESIRED behavior].
- When your student is focused, they are a pleasure to have in class. Let’s meet to discuss strategies to keep them on track.
- Your student often struggles to focus in class, which harms their ability to engage well with class activities and assignments.
- Your student needs to slow down in order to produce quality/carefully done work.
- Your student needs to follow classroom rules more closely throughout the school day.
- Your student has exhibited [UNDESIRABLE behavior]. We will continue to reinforce appropriate behaviors.
- Your student exhibited [UNDESIRABLE behavior] [this many] times this quarter. Let’s work to reduce the incidence of this behavior to [goal] times.
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:
- Your student has come so far in [subject]! Focusing on [important skill] is the next step.
- Your student has made so much progress! They still struggle with [important skill], so that should be our next focus.
- Your child has done well but I am concerned that their lack of [listening/focus/motivation] has contributed to a lower grade than I know they could achieve.
- Let’s work on motivating your student to reach their potential.
- I would like to see your student pay closer attention to [subject/topic] in order to get a better grade.
- If your student works as hard on [important skill] as they have worked on [improved subject], then they will be caught up in no time!
- Your child is very engaged during whole-group [subject instruction] but struggles to work independently.
- Your student’s persistence is exemplary.
- When motivated, your child does well on class assignments. We need to extend that motivation further.
- Your child has improved significantly but still needs to slow down and check their work to make sure that all answers are correct.
- Your student is struggling to understand new concepts in [subject]. Paying closer attention to the assigned reading and class lecture would be beneficial.
- The hard work is paying off! Let’s keep it up when we start working on [next skill].
- Your child is enthusiastic but still doesn’t understand [topic]. Additional work on this topic would be incredibly helpful.
- Your child requests a great deal of adult assistance when completing school work. Let’s work on encouraging independent work.
Report card comments for students whose skills are proficient:

- Your child excels at applying what they learn in the classroom to real-world and real-life situations. With a little more work, they could really go far!
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:

125 Quick Report Card Remarks And Teachers Comments On Students’ Progress In English
Teaching is a great profession, which some rather refer to as a ‘calling’. Teachers, just like parents, are a very important part of a child’s life, having a great influence on their perception of themselves and life in general.
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.
Typically, the teachers comments on students’ progress under his/her care are about individual students’ strengths that should be encouraged and weaknesses that the student should improve upon.

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

100 Sample Report Card Comments and 5 Strategies for Simplifying Report Cards
April 7, 2020 by Evan-Moor | 1 Comment
I don’t know any teacher who looks forward to doing report cards. This time always seems to be packed to the max with additional testing days and long to-do lists. Despite this, report cards are an important tool that schools employ to show parents how their child is progressing in school and should be completed with careful consideration.
Report card comments should be personalized for each student and provide meaningful feedback to help parents understand their child’s progress. The most important concept to remember when writing report card comments is to frame each statement in encouraging and positive language.
Here are a few tips to help you provide honest and valuable feedback while being encouraging and professional, including 100 sample report card comments that you can use today.

5 strategies for simplifying report cards, 1. employ the sandwich feedback technique:.
- Always begin with a positive comment and end with a positive comment. This approach can help parents receive any negative feedback with the understanding that you “see” their child and are approaching his or her learning with a “growth mindset” and not criticism.
2. Highlight areas of growth
- Every student has areas of growth throughout the school year. Find an area he or she has improved on and mention it. It could be in a field of study such as reading comprehension, fluency, math facts, handwriting, asking important questions or a personal attribute such as persevering, helping others, leadership in the classroom, etc.
3. Expand on areas of improvement
- Highlight important areas for improvement and provide practical advice/examples of how to work on this at home. Provide simple strategies that parents can implement that will give them a tangible tool to help their child at home. Even if you think the parent won’t or isn’t interested, it is a good idea to provide documented options for your school files.
4. Be transparent
- Being honest about students’ progress takes careful consideration. Be tactful in your comments and back up your observations with specific examples. (I recommend taking notes on students’ progress throughout the semester and using this documentation during report card time.) This is also a great time to include helpful strategies/ resources and offer advice on how parents can support their student at home.
- Always proofread your reports before sending them. Report cards reflect you as a teacher and should be treated with the same consideration you show your students in the classroom.

Report cards are used to show parents what students have learned, areas they excel in, and areas for improvement. Although report card grades reflect how well a student is performing against a set of standards, I would refrain from any comparisons on report cards. Every student matures and develops at a different rate, and it is important not to focus on how well children compare to their classmates, but rather to highlight how they are excelling in their personal goals/growth.
