How Do I Override a Performance Scale Grade?
« on: December 02, 2018, 08:41:32 PM »
Prior to version 4.4, teachers could only type in a new performance scale level for a student.  As of version 4.4, teachers can now override the grade using a grade slider.  This will affect both the grade progress sliding scale and the text of the grade on the report, automatically filling in the text from the performance scale used for the class.  The grade progress slider will then agree with the performance level chosen by the teacher.

The slider is shown below.  To get to the slider, click the Enter button to the right of the student's name in the gradebook.  Simply move the slider to the desired position reflecting the student's progress.



To revert back to the automatically-determined grade, click the "Stop Overriding Grade" button - the grade and slider will revert back to the position determined by the standard algorithm for determining performance scale grades.

Grades which have been over-ridden show up with a dark grey background in the gradebook display to remind teachers that they have over-ridden the grade.
