If grades will be entered by teachers via the Teacher Portal, the Portal Options date range must be entered. The Support Standards-Based Grade Reporting option must be selected to support this on the secondary teacher’s Grades page and in their gradebook.
For each grading window for Secondary schools, there are options for Require Comment, Require Work Habits, Require Citizenship, and Can Mark Page as Complete. These options work in conjunction with the Missing Mark Listing report.
Teachers Entering Grades (Using Teacher Portal)
Teachers use the Grades page in the Teacher Portal to view or update their students’ grade reporting grades. They can access this screen by clicking on the Grades node on the navigation tree. All students for whom the teacher is currently able to enter grade reporting grades will display. This includes students in classes where the teacher is "co-teaching" or sharing the class (i.e., the teacher's number is populated in the Master Schedule Tch#2 or Tch#3 field).
A message will display in yellow indicating the period of time that a teacher can post to grades. Click the mouse on the Period drop-down to select a different period. The yellow highlighted column is the marking period for which the teacher can enter grades.
The page will change from View only to Edit mode by clicking on the Edit All Records button. A drop down listing will display to the right of the Valid Marks, Citizenship, Work Habits and Comment fields. Select the applicable values.
Select the applicable values from the dropdowns.
Any data changes made on the page are effective immediately. When done editing or adding data, click the mouse on the Done Editing button to change back to the view only display.
NOTE: Any data changes made on the Grades page in the “Edit all Records” mode will be effective immediately regardless of clicking on the “Done Editing” button. The “Done Editing” button merely changes the page back to view only display.
A teacher may also enter grades for an individual student on the Grades page located under Student Data | Grades in the navigation tree. When a teacher edits grade records on this page, they are limited to entering only the grade records which are assigned to them, and only the current mark.
