NON-TERM Tasks lists all tasks for the currently viewed Section that are associated with Semesters and the Year as a whole. Term Tasks have their own Dashboard Tab.   A maximum of three (3) Non-Term Tasks can be associated with each Semester and three (3) with the Final (Year) Grade, for a maximum of nine (9) Non-Term Tasks  Their use is configured in School Grading Schema, including assigned weights.  It is important to realize that Non-Term Tasks are not a factor in Grading Algorithm calculations, which apply only to individual Terms.

 

Non-Term Tasks are handled in much the same fashion as Term Tasks, except that each has a unique preassigned Task Code (Codes for Term Task use can be freely created).  The nine (9) preassigned Codes are:

 

S1 Exam

Sem 1 Exam

S1Add1

additional Sem 1 Task #1

S1Add2

additional Sem 1 Task #2

S2Exam

Sem 2 Exam

S2Add1

additional Sem 2 Task #1

S2Add2

additional Sem 2 Task #2

FinalExam

Final Exam

FinalAdd1

additional Final Task #1

FinalAdd2

additional Final Task #2

 

When a Section is first added, or when first opened in a new school year, each Non-Term Task on the grid must be Defined (ie associated with an existing Task in the Task Archive).  Undefined Tasks have an  alert of the form <Double-click here to define xxxx xxxx> in the Description column.  Double-clicking it opens the Course Task Archive, from which a Task can be chosen.

 

Like Term Tasks, any Non-Term Task can be excluded from all grade calculations for all students (see Exclude task/grades Checkbox).  Excluded Tasks appear on the Grid with a strikethrough.
