Gradebook How to: Prevent "holes" & transfer grades for students with schedule changesby Margaret Griffith
Who: Teachers can follow this document when they get a student who has been enrolled in another class and has grades that need to be brought into their gradebook.
Principals/Administrators can follow this document to see grade differences in Teacher's Gradebooks and approve any change requests that have been made and are pending.
When: Use this documentation at the end of each grading period.
Why: Students' grades will not average properly if grades are not all in the same grade book. When a student begins the year in one class, has grades and then moves to the next class, those grades need to be moved along with the student so that the student's average accurately reflects this student's work.
Student's Report Cards will be inaccurate as well as Transcripts. End of the Year labels that are affixed to the AAR will also not be correct.
Once complete, the PEIMS Clerks can then run reports such as cards and transcript labels.Transferred Grades and Grade Change Requests.pdf 1.35 MB (Last Modified on June 8, 2012)
