Comments

We are not able to recreate the issue you described and the issue has not been reported by any of 30+ school districts that test our reports.

If the issue is occurring in only a few classes, then the problem is most likely with the traditional grade calculations set for the those classes.

Have the teachers manually reentered the calculation they want to use and submit. Rerun the report and see the proper calculation is displayed.

What determines how a Teacher ends up on this report. We have Teachers that have not updated thiers grades for over 30 days but do not show up.

Thank you

Terry Morrow

1. Are your teachers using the PT Pro Gradebook?

2. What value are you entering in the "Check for Classes that haven't been updated in x day(s)" box?

When I try to run the honor roll report my data comes out really strange...goes way across that page and it not lined up. I also have to hit submit twice to even get any data. I have tried FireFox and Chrome. I also tried to generate the report as a PDF and it just sits there.

What version of Powerschool is currently installed on your server?

Hi, We were running this report and noticed that students who are no longer enrolled in the class are pulling into this report. It makes it difficult to see if the grade is missing or if they are just no longer in that section. Can we add something so those student do not pull into the report? Thanks!

This will be addressed in the next release of the PSCB - Custom Reports (Grading) plugin.

Thanks Rob,
It would also be really helpful to add a department column to this report. It would more easily allow our staff to filter out the teachers they manage and get a clearer sense of how many grades are actually missing. Also we see that Advisory and a few other classes are pulling in that dont receive a grade. Any suggestions on how we can get those classes out? Thanks!

Hi Again,
It would be great to add more filtering ability to this report. All of subject areas are providing comments, so the file is very big and actually slows down PowerSchool. Can we maybe add the ability to select by department before clicking submit to run the report? Thanks!

Hi,
I am curious, which GPA is being calculated in the Honor Roll report. I want to make sure what is being pulled is accurate. Thanks!

The report uses the GPA Calculation assigned to the Honor Roll Method selected.

Hi Thank you again for all of your work on these, it is so helpful!

For the Class - Grades Verification report, students who are no longer enrolled in the class are on the report. Can you add in active/inactive so we can filter them out? It makes it hard to review grade completion.

Thanks!
