To create report cards for students with the new Report Card Types, the students need to be tagged with the corresponding Report Card Type before the Standards Based Grade Reporting table is initialized. On the Standards Based Grade Input page under Standards Based Grades in the navigation, click on the Report Card Type dropdown. Select the appropriate code. Queries can also be run to populate the STU.RC field before the Standards Based Grade Reporting table is created.
Add-On Report Cards
Schools can now assign certain students an extra Add-On report card in addition to their regular report card. These students will receive two report cards each grading period. This feature is useful in situations where schools wish to provide additional grades for certain students; such as students participating in a language immersion program, GATE, or EL students. Only the 2-column Portrait report cards support the Add-On report card feature.
To designate a Report Card Type as an Add-On report card, the Code (COD) table Amount value for the STU.RC code record needs to be set to either a 1 or a 2. Report Card Types that have a 1 in the COD.N1 field are Add-On report cards that will re-print the teacher comments from the default report card onto the Add-On report card. Report Card Types that have a 2 in the COD.N1 field are Add-On report cards that hide the teacher comments on the Add-On report card. Additionally, if the only information on the back of the Add-On report card is the teacher comments and the COD.N1 = 2, then the entire back page will be blank.
When the Standards Based Grades are initialized for a new mark period, students that are tagged to receive an Add-On report card in the Student Data Report Card Type (STU.RC) field will receive both the default report card standards and the Add-On report card standards. Teachers will see the Add-On report card standards below the student's default report card standards. In the below example the ELD Add-On report card standards are listed at the bottom of the teacher's Standards Based Grades page for the student.
School staff will also view/update the Add-On report card standard on the Standards Based Input page.
Students tagged to receive the Add-On report cards will receive two report cards each grading period. The first report card will be the default report card and the second report card will be the Add-On report card and will include the Report Card Type description from the Code (COD) table in the title.
