Elementary Grade Book: Setting Q1 Assignments to Feed the Q2 Report Card

Last modified on 04/03/2020

How to quickly adjust the settings on your first quarter assignments so they feed into the second quarter report card.

When elementary teachers select Quarter 2 in the grade book, they might see an empty grade book and a message about there being no data to display for the current filters. This is because all of the assignments created during the first quarter are only associated with that quarter. If you would like your quarter 1 assignments to feed into the 2nd quarter report card (and show up in the grade book for Q2) it is a matter of a few clicks.


1. From the Grade Book menu, select "Assignments"

2. On the assignments screen copy the settings pictured below

  • Check the "Show All Periods" checkbox
  • Page size to "50 assignments"
  • Select the "Grading Periods" tab
  • If you want all of your Q1 assignments to feed into Q2, check the "All" box. Otherwise, manually check Q2 for the individual assignments you want.
  • If you have more than 50 assignments, you will need to use the "Previous" and "Next" page buttons to load and adjust your remaining assignments.
