Regular Classroom Teacher Setup

Grade Book Setup - Must be done at the beginning of each year before assignments can be created.

Average Calc Setup

  • Setup Assignment Types - Click on link for directions.
  • Setup Calculation Method and Weights - Skip this - Nothing needs to be done in this area if you are using "Straight Average" as your calculation method. That is the default setting.
  • Setup Grading Scales - This should already be done for you, but you need to confirm this set up. Classes must be set up using "Custom Setup 2" BEFORE you can begin creating assignments. Click on link for directions.
