Google Classroom/Aeries - Allow sync for ALL assignments even if "Is Grading Complete?" box is checked
When using Google Classroom, if a student completes a missing assignment, it will not import to Aeries if the "Is Grading Complete?" box is checked. But if we do not check that box, then the overall grade is not calculated properly (the missing assignment does not count as a zero as it should - a student with many missing assignments will look like they are getting a much higher grade). It would be VERY helpful to have the Google Classroom and Aeries sync update scores without having to uncheck and recheck the "Is Grading Complete?" box all the time. Please help!
And the fact that Aeries used to import all scores, regardless of "Grading Completed" being checked or not makes it all the more frustrating that we now have to beg for this to be a feature.
Many of my students have assignments that need to be made up and students are allowed to retake tests and fix errors on other assignments. This makes things very difficult to go back and forth with who did what with what assignments. Previously I was updating assignments just in Aeries when students did work outside the due date, then when updating if I had not changed it in google before importing it would change those grades back to zero so, I would just update in google and problem solved. Now it does not work that way and I have to not only update in google but also in Aeries if I do not uncheck the graded complete. This would not be a big deal but I have over a 100 students and I have at least 2 grades to enter everyday and sometimes more depending on the assignment and Chapter. This is very time consuming for something that was not the case in the beginning, please fix it so that grades can be updated even if grading is complete, this effects the students as well as the teachers ability to allow students the opportunity to make up and fix work. Thank you for your attention tk this matter and sorry for the long comment.

Please help us by making this fix in Aeries. I also think that there should be a 'Save' button as well for us when importing grades into Aeries.(Edited by admin)
If anything just add a function box that allows us to click on and off all assignment grading completed so that before importing grades we could click it off and then after importing grades we can click it on.... The box could be placed in the upper left corner of gradebook where the other function boxes are like override, filters, and trend.
Please fix this issue.
