HS Grading Periods Update: Action Required!
Posted by Brad Kamradt on 9/1/2011
BACKGROUND INFORMATION FOR TEACHERS
periods have been added to Genesis. Gradebook assignments created before
this update may not be visible to you. For peace of mind, you can view
your assignments by selecting Q1 or Q2 in the Gradebook "Period"
After following the steps below, you will be able to view your
preexisting assignments in their correct grading period(s). This should be a one-time fix so long as your Gradebook Setup was performed as prescribed during the 8/16 initial training, with new assignments being added to grading periods by their Assignment Due Date.
BEFORE CONTINUING, please
confirm under Gradebook => Gradebook Setup, that your "Grading
Period Default for New Assignments" is set to "Assignment Due Date."
NEXT STEPS FOR TEACHERS
(See reference screenshot below.)
To fix your preexisting assignments, select “Assignments” from the Gradebook menu.
Then, click on the "Grading Periods" tab. Set the filters for "Grading Period" and "Page Size" to "All" and "50 Assignments."
Next, check the grading-period boxes for each of your assignments per these guidelines:
Assignment due dates on or before 9/14 =>
Check Progress 1-1, 1-2, Quarter 1, Progress 2-1, 2-2 and Quarter 2
Assignment due dates 9/15 through 10/5 =>
Check Progress 1-2, Quarter 1, Progress 2-1, 2-2 and Quarter 2
Assignment due dates 10/6 through 10/28 =>
Check Quarter 1, Progress 2-1, 2-2 and Quarter 2
Assignments due dates 10/29 through 11/16 =>
Check Progress 2-1, 2-2 and Quarter 2
Assignments due dates 11/17 through 12/07 =>
Check Progress 2-2 and Quarter 2
Assignments due dates 12/07 through 1/13/2012 =>
Check Quarter 2 only
Depending on how many assignments you have and when they are due, you may want to use the "All" checkboxes to select an entire column.
IMPORTANT: To save your changes, you must click the "Save Grading Periods" button. ALSO, you will need to repeat this process for every class section in which you have preexisting Gradebook assignments.
