Graded Coursework

Manage Graded Coursework

If you want to be able to track student grades for a specific assignment (coursework) you must enter the coursework into the system as a graded item.

This will allow you to associate the coursework with a grade category so that the system knows how to calculate the student's grade. Once you have created a graded item in the system, it will appear in the Gradebook section for the course so that you can enter grades for each student.

Once graded and non-graded coursework has been entered into the system, it can also be edited and deleted.

► Title - Enter a name for the coursework that will make it easy to identify.

► Grade Category - If you want this coursework to be graded, you must choose a grade category from the list of grade categories you defined in the grade category section of SchoolFront.

 Assigned Date - This is the date on which you will issue the coursework to students.

NoteOnce you have created an assignment with a max score and saved it, in the gradebook you can enter a score higher than the max, for instance if you wish to award a student extra credit. 

► Description - Describe the assignment (e.g. provide instructions).

 Private Notes - These notes will be visible only to you and those on the teaching team. Parents and students will not be able to see these notes if they login to SchoolFront.
