Comments

The Class - Student Assignments Status allows you to run for a current selection of students. I do not see a student name column so you don't know which assignment belongs to which student in your selection.

Thank you!

Thanks for bring this item to our attention.

This was an obvious oversight on our part. The student name will be include in the next release of the report in January.

Thank you for all of your hard work creating these reports. They are wonderful!!!
I have a question regarding this report. It doesn't give the overall grade for the class, it has the grade level of the student. I love how it shows all the assignments with scores, but it would be awesome if we could see the overall current grade as well. Is that something that could be added?

Thank you for your suggestion. The request has been added to the PSCB enhancement list.

Teacher's Gradebook report says not turned on by Administration. How do I turn it on?

S. Poarch

It would be great to add the ability to select which quarter you want to view assignments for. This could be a drop down at the top or the term can be included in the column so it can be filtered. Thanks!

For this report, would it possible to add a Homeroom selection to this report to be able to see which homeroom students in each section belong to?

Thank you for your suggestion. This request has been added to the PSCB enhancement list.

Good Morning,

When trying to pull up the honor roll report I am not able to see any of the store codes we have set up in the drop down menus and I also cannot see any of our honor roll methods in the report drop down list. How can I get our store codes and honor roll methods to show up as selections on the report? Thanks for the help.

To use this report you need to store the grades and calculate the honor roll first.

Navigate to: System/Grades/Calculate Honor Roll.

After the calculation is completed, you will see the available menu options.

Thank you for all these awesome reports! As we move users away from running reports in the the old custom reports area, will this bundle include Gradebook Percent vs. Letter Grade report?

Thank you!

I need more information on what you want included in Gradebook Percent vs. Letter Grade report. The existing Gradebook - Out of Sync Grades report may be what you are looking for.

The Gradebook Percent vs. Letter Grade report will show current gradebook grades that do not match the percent before they are stored. Thank you!

I now understand what you are requesting. I will add this request to PSCB Enhancement List.

Thank you!

If a teacher marks a student as exempt from an assignment, the report shows a blank. It would be helpful to be able to distinguish exempt grades from missing grades in the report.

Thank you for the suggestion. This will be added to the PSCB enhancement request list.

After looking into the code, found that the ExcludeFromStoredGrades condition is including only those with 0, but 2 is also a valid value.

In order to get them to work I changed the conditions from "= 0" to "!= 1".

I suspect that other reports may have this same issue.

Peter,

Thanks for bringing this issue to our attention. I will update the 5 associated grading reports with the code change you provided.

When running the Honor Roll Report if we run it for a large number of students the entire report runs but it doesn't list the student names after listing 170 students. The remainder of the report is listed but student names are left out. We are running it for all store codes, all methods, and all levels using a current selection of 243 students.

This report has been tested in numerous districts of 1500+ students. No issues were encountered when running the report for all store codes, all methods, and all levels using all students.

You should check the log files on your server to see if you are encountering memory allocation issues.

Class - Grades Search does not show "F" as an option. Base Resources was updated and installed v.1.7 of grading. Any suggestions?

The values for the the multi-select grades menu are auto generated from the grades that currently exist in the teacher grade book.

If the "F" grade does not appear on the menu it would indicate that no "F" grades currently exist in the grade books/year you are searching.

Student Potential/Earned Credit Summary
I have a couple of questions - is there a way to add a term to the drop down. We assign credit based on the F1 grade and it is not showing in the drop down. Also the grade level is only 9-12 could that be expanded to include 7 & 8. We have some middle school students that earn credit and they would like to be able to use this report also.
Thank you

The Student Potential/Earned Credit Summary report is school based only. It will only display credits for grades 9-12 in the current school.

The Store Code dropdown menu is auto generated by the store codes found in Historical grades. If a store code does not appear on the menu, it indicates that the store does not exist in historical grades.

PSCB has no plans to add additional grade levels at this time. You can customized the report if you want to include grades 7-8 from another school.

I don't believe I have actually used this particular report previously, but I was wondering if additional setup was needed somewhere that I'm unaware of. I would love to be able to run the report by specific teacher, but there is no drop-down available. It simply says All Teachers and that is the only option. We split courses at the semester so for example S13 is Biology Semester 1 and S14 is Semester 2. instead of running the report twice per course, ideally we would run it by each Science teacher individually and look at the info that way. Is anyone else having a similar issue where teachers aren't selectable?

Check you plugin version number. Version 1.7 has a Select Teacher filter.
