  1. Grading Window Timeframes

    We get many districts asking for specific grading windows close times (i.e. 8am, or 3pm). It would be great if the grading windows under Portal Options could accommodate an exact date and time the user could specify. Right now since it defaults to midnight, we have to manually go in and close a window if a site wants it to close at 8am on a particular day.

  2. Honor Roll Report - Do not print excluded students on the report

    Currently, if you have students on a Grad Track that is excluded from the Class Rank calculation, those students still print on the Honor Roll and Class Rank report, listed at the top with blanks in the Class Rank and Class Size columns. These students should be excluded from the report and not print at all.

  4. Teacher Portal Grade Screen: alphabetical student sort

    After some of the updates that were put in place at the beginning of the 2020 school year, the order of student names on the Teacher Portal Grade Screen changed from a straight alphabetical list of the students in that period to a list organized first by section, then alphabetical by student.

    This new order makes it awkward for many of our teacher to enter Citizenship, Work Habits & Comments by student, as they are used to seeing their period roster listed alphabetically and not split by section. They need to scan multiple 'sub-lists' on the page to find a…

  5. Grade Reporting and Transcripts - Support Inactive Valid Marks.

    We wanted to remove the + and - (B+, B-, C+...) grades going forward. We cannot do it because the Valid Marks for the current year are used to determine the cumulative GPA. Grades in previous years that had the + and - were being excluded from the calculations. We had to add them back. If the system would support inactivating valid marks, we could leave them there for calculation purposes, but no one could use them going forward.

  7. Attach files to report card comments

    It would be useful if teachers were able to attach files (such as a progress summary export from student software) to report cards, in addition to the existing comments they can input, for parents to access when viewing the report card through the parent portal.

  9. Grade Reporting Codes and Descriptions should limit the Description characters.

    Grade Report Cards - When entering Grade Reporting Codes and Descriptions, Academic Marks, the description allows you to enter many more characters than will print on report card legend.
    The form should limit to the number of characters than will fit/ print on the GRD report cards.

  11. Copy grades to history should overwrite instead of creating a duplicate

    At the middle school, after grades are completed, our office staff would click on copy grades to history to update transcript.
    Oftentimes, they would click on the button again and the transcripts end up with duplicate grades with the header that says "work in progress."
    When this happens, we would reach out to support for a SQL query that we can run to clear the history.
    Is it possible for this function to be disabled after it's run the first time? Or if it's run the second time, could it overwrite instead of create a duplicate one?

  13. Allow teachers to make actual comments on grades instead of the limited choices

    Many times the 3 options allowed does not even begin to describe what I really want to convey to parents or what really should be on the report card.

    Create a new option called Manual and when chosen allows a teacher to enter a freeform textbox up to 1000 characters to enter whatever they want. Disk space is cheap. To put it in perspective:

    If every teacher in the district, writes a comment for every student for every grading period (6 teachers x 11500 Students x 8 grading periods x 1000 characters ) this would equate to 552 Megabyts or…

  15. Print Grade Report Cards - Need Larger message code field

    I would like at least an option to make the number of characters in the message code field larger on report cards. Due to the change in grading during COVID, we needed to address this as a message to parents on the report cards. The field does not allow for more than one line of characters. The message we needed to relay would have been about 2 1/2 lines so it was cut off. This meant we had to run all of the reports cards through the copy machine to copy the message that we needed on the bottom of…

  17. 2-Mark Standards Based Grade Report Card

    Allow for a 2-mark Standards Based Grade (SBG) report card. Currently the report card formats are fixed to either 3 or 4 marks. This does not accommodate elementary schools who are semester based, or issue grades only two times per year.
