The unique exercise book from CP to third grade

A unique school notebook

The school books for elementary and middle schools have developed into nothing more than a common school book for compulsory school education..

A student's school certificates include for each cycle :

  • regular reviews of the current cycle
  • the year-end reviews of previous cycles and, in the first year of a cycle, the periodic reviews of the previous year
  • Certificates already acquired: PSC1, ASSR 1 and 2, AER, school certificate “Swimming” (ASSN), etc.

A detailed balance sheet at the end of each period :

  • on the front the level of the students by subject
  • on the back general assessments and projects carried out

This national model is based on an identical format from first to third grade.

At the end of each cycle (CE2, sixth, third)One sheet provides an overall assessment of eight components of common ground using a simple indicator: inadequate, fragile, satisfactory or very good control.

Regular reviews

The periodical review tells parents what their child will be primarily assessed on and what the assessments have revealed.

From CP to CM2The teacher assigns the student to the learning goals in each subject: not achieved, partially achieved, achieved, exceeded. From sixth grade onwardsthe notes can be inserted into the periodic reports.

It says so in the regular reviews :

  • the achievements and progress of the students by discipline, with mention
  • of the program's main elements worked
  • Educational pathways
  • any specific support agreements

To the universityIt goes on to say:

  • individual care
  • interdisciplinary practical lessons, from fifth grade onwards
  • Elements of school life
  • possible additional lessons

A correspondence appendix is ​​included with these reports to facilitate dialogue with families.

In everyday classroom life, grades are not eliminated in either primary school or middle school. Freedom is left to the teaching teams. Thus, teachers in schools that still use note-taking can continue the noted exercises, but regular assessments will require them to re-establish the learning objectives; “Classes without grades” at universities can also continue this practice.

In regular reviewsPositioning on a four-level scale is possible in every compulsory school class. Positioning based on grades is only possible in college.

Periodic reports are only available to National Education for the duration of the cycle and the following year. Only final assessments accompany students until the end of their secondary school education.
