MS Grading Periods Update: Action Required!
Posted by Brad Kamradt on 9/2/2011 12:00:00 PM
BACKGROUND INFORMATION FOR TEACHERS
Progress reporting 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" drop-down menu.
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:
Assignments due before 9/28 => check Progress 1 and Quarter 1
Assignments due between 9/29 and 10/28 => check Quarter 1
Assignments due between 10/29 and 12/7 => check Progress 2 and Quarter 2
Assignments due between 12/8 and 1/13 => check Quarter 2
Depending on how many assignments you have and when they are due, you may want to use the "All" check-boxes 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.
