TeacherPlus Now Calculates Semester and Final Skill Grades

After this feature is enabled on the TeacherPlus Management Site (found in the Skills Classic → Skills: Semester and Final Grades area), Semester and Final Skill grades can now be calculated at the same time that Semester and Final Course grades are calculated.

Calculate Semester and Final Grades

 

Once calculated, the grades can be reviewed on the Skills/Standards screen, by clicking Skill Report Card View. In the near future, a separate feature will be added to the Skill Report Card View screen, allowing teachers to calculate the Final Skill Grades directly on this screen.

Note: It's very important that teachers review all calculated Skill Grades in order to ensure that they agree with the calculated grades and to make any necessary overrides.

Feature Fixes

  • The Management Site setting Disable Marking Period Dates is successfully carried over to the teacher application.
  • The Gradebook Blank Spreadsheet Report under Reports → Class prints students in alphabetical order.
  • Changes in the skills settings for Combined Progress Report are now being saved.
  • The Lunch Count time-stamp submission reflects the time on your desktop properly.
