Use Canva's drag and drop tools to design a detailed and fully customized report card

Describe your student’s progress thoroughly with a report card

Report cards help teachers communicate with students’ parents about performance across subjects and overall school activities. Therefore, as an important communications and evaluation tool, report cards need to be clear and well-designed. While computing, deliberating and finalizing your students’ grade is a challenge all teachers have to go through, designing one need not be. Even with little to zero design experience, creating informative and visually engaging report cards is quick and easy with Canva.

Choose from hundreds of professionally-made templates in our library and customize them using our suite of design elements. With our editor’s intuitive and drag-and-drop simplicity, you can focus your time and effort describing your students’ performance and hard work in school as accurately and comprehensively as possible.

Create a report card that reflects your school’s identity

Schools are unique and report cards should definitely reflect this. With hundreds of templates and thousands of design elements to choose from, you’re one click away from a distinct report card you will use every year.

Start with choosing a report card template made by our team of professional designers. From there, you can start editing information by changing the text and colors to match your school’s branding. You can also remain consistent with your school’s identity by inserting your logo and other existing graphics on the report card using our upload tool.

Easily deliberate and collaborate with your co-teachers

A critical part of creating a report card is deliberating the final grade and getting the feedback of your co-teachers. However, a teacher’s schedule can often get too busy, especially during finals week, turning on-site collaboration into a great challenge. Thankfully, Canva makes collaboration as easy as sending or emailing a link to your report card design.

Click on the Share button on the editor toolbar to get your design’s unique link. Choose whether to give them editing or viewing access before sending your invitation via email or just messaging them the link. Anyone you choose to share the link to can then access your design by logging into their own Canva account on any computer, iPhone, iPad or Android device.

Follow your preferred reporting style

With Canva, you have the option to create your student evaluations digitally or use a pen for a personalized, handwritten touch.

Want to go digital? On the design app, click the ‘Copy this page’ icon to make several copies of your report card for your students. Use our text editor to add their names, grades, and evaluations. Save your report card in a PNG or JPEG file and it’s ready as an email attachment to parents or for printing.
