Grading Student Work in SchoolFrontSM

The Gradebook in SchoolFrontSM allows teachers to grade or edit grades for student work and also to mark student work as "missing" (MI) and "excused" (EX). Missing work counts as a zero when averages are calculated by the system, and excused work is ignored in the average calculation.

Note: Teachers can also run report for a specific course or student to get a list of all coursework that is missing for the course or student.
