Our district did away with writing comments. Now it is a number and it has a description of for example #1=effectively uses time in class. So basically I feel this is boring and really gives no real information to the parents of how the student is doing in details. How if you use this number system code, would I use it for every subject and not sounding repetitive?

phone call or text?

Maybe since you can't add personalized comments, you could make phone calls to tell something each student did that you can compliment. Or send emails? Just a thought. In one way it makes life easier, but I agree, it makes it difficult to give a clear picture of the students.

Thank you...

but to not sound repetitive with the numbers how should I mark them for each subject area?
