How to transfer calculated marks from your grade book to the elementary report card. Instructions for Homeroom, Music, PE, ELL & Reading Teachers.



This article will show you how to transfer marks calculated from grade book assignment scores to the report card. Only homeroom teachers and specialists (Music, PE, ELL & Reading) will be able to use the Report Card Preview - Standards screen to transfer marks to the report card. If you use the grade book for a math class, the homeroom teacher will see the calculated marks and will be responsible for transferring them to the report card. Follow up with the homeroom teacher to make sure they do so.

To Transfer Marks

1. Open the Report Card Preview - Standards screen.

Note: the old  "Report Card Preview" menu item
will be removed starting in the 19-20 school year.


2. The Report Card Preview - Standards screen functions in the same way as the old Report Card Preview screen you may be familiar with, but the layout is simply a list of all report card standards without the content area headings. Just like the old Report Card Preview screen, transferring all student marks to the report card will overwrite any corresponding marks already on the report card. Transfer all student marks from this screen before making any manual adjustments to individual student marks.

3. Click the green "Transfer all student marks..." button at the top of the screen. You will see a warning message about overwriting existing marks. Since you haven't entered or adjusted any student marks yet, it is safe to continue.
