How do you do grades?

How do you assign grades, keep track of student abilities, etc?
Using a traditional grade book is hard for me. I don't think scores in a grade book and percentages and all that is really appropriate for kinders. What do you do?

I assess one-on-one for reading and math. I get my best information that way. I will take grades for writing, penmanship, and work habits.

We have no grades for K. Our report cards and midterm progress reports are 100% assessment. As in, every line on each represents an assessment. There's no cumulative scoring or anything based on class work or homework.

We have to input scores on a gradebook, but I don't use them for report cards. I agree that they don't tell me much. We use a 1-2-3-4 system where 1 is below basic, 2 is basic or almost there, 3 is at grade level, and 4 is exceeds. I use my one on one assessments to determine the grades. We also have some places where we just record the hard data, like how many letters and sounds that they know, how high they can count, etc.

We went to a standards based report card this year, so we do not use "grades". I assess one on one for almost everything, but I do use ESGI for sight word assessing and include those results in with the report card.
