Choice of a Grading Algorithm — Not Urgent!

The design of  Grades2Go™ makes it unnecessary to commit to a Grading Algorithm at the beginning of a school year or Term.  The Grading Algorithm Indicator/Button can be used at any time to experiment with "what if" scenarios before making a final choice.  However, a choice should be made before sending out any Progress Reports to students and parents/guardians and maintained for the rest of the Term.



The Temporary Grading Algorithm window is covered in the next topic.
