The District Grade Report allow districts to setup customized ‘report card’ style reports. These include Grading Scales (A, B, C, etc.) and Grading Ranges (i.e., 90-100% correct = A). Grading scales for the purple District Subject Tabs (Managed Tabs) can be set up by a District Admin. The grading scales can be customized with point values for each test.
A District Admin can "lock down" the Grading Scales to ensure all teachers use the same values. Step-by-step instructions can be found below the video.
