  • The overview screen acts as your editable web view of the report card. Here you can view or override the subject grade and enter marks for each skill/standard.
  • The subject grade is generated based on assignment scores, OR can be manually entered on this overview page.
  • Click in the grade/mark box to pull up the scores from the selected grade definition.

Categories and Weighting

  • Add the categories you use right to your subjects on the subject edit page
  • Use your predefined categories, or type in your own
  • Use weights to adjust your grading by category, or just use the categories to sort assignments
  • Assigning a weight tells the system how to weight the assignments in that category
  • Weights must total 100

We hope you find these informative as you individualize your grade books to what you need for your classes and students!
