DashboardSel_YearGrades

 

 

YEAR Grades summarizes all Term grades, provides for entry of Non-Term task grades, and calculates (projects) Semester/Final grades for all students in the current Section.  Displayed data columns depend on the School Grading Schema and correspond to the entries in NON-TERM Tasks.  Until Posting is performed (header shows [POSTED]), any column can be edited in a number of ways:

 

Calculated Term grades can be overridden, and Midterm grade information can be easily attached to any Term column.

Non-Term task grades are entered in a similar fashion to Term task grades, with identical Mark Tools. A grade can be entered on the grid as any Grade Type (Percent, Points, Letter, Pass/Fail), no matter what the default suggests.  All data is automatically refreshed whenever any cell is changed (with the exception of Quick Entry mode, which requires ReCalc or changing to another mode to update the entire grid). Comment text can be attached to any grade cell, with or without grade entry.

Calculated Semester grades can be overridden

Calculated Year grades can be overridden

Preformatted and free-form comments can be attached to Term/Midterm, Semester, and Year columns

 

Grades2Go™ automatically creates a number of useful summaries of YEAR Grades data as part of the display:

 

Section YEAR Averages (bottom of each column)

Section Distribution Histograms (last rows of all columns)

 

In addition, formatted Reports are available within a few clicks of the mouse. Reports are printable/emailable as PDF's:
