Tab: TERM Tasks

  Previous topic Next topic JavaScript is required for the print function  






TERM Tasks lists all Tasks associated with the currently viewed Section and Term.  A Task may be used only once in a school  year, and Task names must be unique (ie a Task name may appear only once).  Note that Tasks can be listed without yet being assigned (see NOT YET ASSG item below).  Tasks can also appear with a strikethrough, indicating that the Task has been excluded from all grade calculations for all students (see Exclude task/grades Checkbox).
