It has been proven that student achievement increases when students take ownership of their learning and monitor their own learning growth and track their own academic data. This is based on the educational research of Robert Marzano and the leadership criteria in The 7 Habits Highly Effective People for Kids by Stephen Covey.
It has also been determined, as obvious as it sounds, that attendance in school daily is a vital behavior for student achievement. If kids are IN school, they are learning. Period. When setting up data notebooks, let students record their own daily or monthly attendance with this graph. Directions included for how to adjust the column for the varying number of school days in each month.

What a wonderful graph! As test scores become ever so much more important as far as teacher accountability, it's nice to have a graph showing how often we get the chance to influence the development of those important tested skills. Thanks!
Thank you for all your thoughtful and explicit feedback this morning on all your purchases. I can't thank you enough. I know it would be easier and faster to leave a quick comment like "Great, thanks!" but you have taken time on *your* Saturday morning to write something unique and different, and positive, for every product...thank you! It's definitely noticed and appreciated. Is there ANYTHING in my store you don't have and wish for? Let me know via email.

Thanks I wished I had this from August. Living iin Illinois where teachers are held accountable for test scores (as many states) this also becomes data when explaining low grades and test scores and lack of progress with RTI...simple form awesome idea
