We mostly listen at ours. This year I think we will also be discussing what direction we would like to head in educationally and how they perceive our son as a learner, what his needs are in the classroom, etc.
Our school gives quite extensive reports twice a year with the activities and whether they've been presented, mastered, or not yet presented, so we have a good picture of where our son's in terms of learning at when we get those. It's more the general overall picture that we look for in the conferences.
