PSCB - Customization (Quick Lookup Tabs - Assignments/Stats)

Note: This plugin has been moved to a new location and is now available for download at PSCB Development.

Version 1.9


This customization adds two tabs to the Quick Lookup screen.

The Student Assignments page includes the following.

• A list of assignments, scores and codes for all classes using the current term display preference.

• A filter option to select and view assignments for a previous grade reporting term.

The Student Stats page is an update to the Student Stats V 3.1 plugin previously published by Brian Andle and includes the following sections.

• Grades and Attendance Summary.

• A Daily Attendance Summary listing Days Absent, Days Tardy, Days Present, Days Membership and Days Enrolled.

• A Class Grades Comparison using the current term display preference.
The data table displays the student's average, the class average, course average, student/section difference and student/course difference for all currently enrolled classes. The data table will only show classes that are set to be stored.

• A listing of the Last gradebook update for each of the student's classes.

This plug-in has solved a big problem for us. Is there a way to set the default Term or can the plug-in be modified to default to the current term? For example our screen is defaulting to Q4. I can't find any documentation except the 2 screen shots on the page.

The customization defaults to the Active Term set on the Current Grade Display page for each school.

To set the Active Term navigate from the Start Page to:

School: Setup / Grading: Current Grade Display

Hi - Is there a way for this to show on the PowerTeacher side? (or am I just missing something). Works great on the admin side. Thank you.

Sorry - I found it, it's under "Student Stats" on teacher side...Thanks!

I already have the PSCB reports bundle and many of the reports but would like to install the Quick Lookup Tabs. I tried to install the plugin and found that the extra tabs were not visible. That's when I read that it should be installed before the reports bundle. If I disable all the PSCB reports and the Home Page and Base Resources will that allow the Quick Lookup Tabs features to be visible or will I need to uninstall all those plugins first?

I answered my own question. I deleted the Base Resources, installed Quick Lookup and then re-installed Base Resources. I now have the tabs.

The PSCB contains some awesome reports. I like having the link under Reports on the left. Thanks a ton to all the contributors!.

Does anyone know of a report/custom page that will pull the quick lookup screen with classes and grades from both school enrollments? School do not want to switch tabs and print two separate pages.

Hi, I am reviewing students' data on the Student Assignment Tab and the category column is blank. All categories are set at the district office and are required for grading. Is there a way for me to figure out why it is not pulling here? Thanks!

Which grade book are you teachers using?

PowerTeacher gradebook or PT Pro gradebook.

Rob Staats

I am having the same issue. It would be very helpful to see the category being used.

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. Categories will be included in the next release of the plugin.

Version 1.7 (2019-09-30)

Student Assignments
- Report results now display both admin and teacher created categories.

It would be a great addition if there was an additional tab that included basic student profile information such as the following. I Don't understand why such a screen is not default in PS?

SSID (State ID)
Student Phone
Student E-mail
Locker Info
Graduation Year
Home Language

Contacts (ALL)

Schedule (Current)

Enrollment History (Transfer Info)

Schedule (Current Term)


Thanks for all you contribute!

The information you are requesting is available in the PSCB - Customization (Student Dashboard) plugin.

The plugin is available for download at PDS.

The Student Dashboard includes all the following in a single location. The page can also be set by the user to be the initial default screen.

Grades & Attendance
Grades Comparison
Historical Grades
Cumulative Info
Test Scores
FY Requests
FY Recommendations

Thank you!

I have this plugin installed but cannot see the attendance piece. Odd?

Do any of your schools have a have a 2019-2020 July start date?

Rob Staats
PSCB Development

No, but I did just install the update. Unfortunately, I had not noticed if attendance was there previously. I am catching things now because I am documenting all the plugins we have installed, where they live (if applicable) and what they do.

Hence, the misspelled (which I have noticed that I misspelled-doh!!) postings :)

After installing this login, I am missing the attendance and grade comparison charts. We are still using PowerTeacher gradebook and our attendance mode is Meeting - Period to Day. Could this by way these charts do not display?


The next release of the PSCB - Customization (Quick Lookup Tabs - Assignments/Stats) plugin is currently under development and is scheduled for release in late November.

In this update the attendance and grade comparison charts are being replaced by data tables and will include:

- Expanded daily attendance stats and information.

Grade Comparison (Each enrolled section)
- Student Average
- Class Average
- Course Average
- Student / Class Difference
- Student / Course Difference

PSCB Development

PSCB reports are not compatible with the older PowerTeacher Gradebook.

The PT Pro Gradebook is required for all grading reports.

Rob Staats
PSCB Development

It seems the Absent and Present categories are reversed when I installed this plugin.

We cannot see anything on the student assignments page since updating to V 1.8
Does anyone know how I could fix this or is there a place that I can download the last version of the plugin?

Navigate to: Start Page > School Setup > Current Grade Display
Confirm that you have entered the Active Term.

The Class Assignments Tab defaults to the Active Term set in this location.

If the Active Term was blank you will not see any assignments until you select a term from the dropdown menu.

If the Active Term was entered and no assignments appear, that indicates that no assignments have yet been entered for that term.

Rob Staats
PSCB Development

Thanks Rob. Our active term is set and there are definitely assignments in for Q2. I am not sure why nothing is showing. It is an issue for all schools. Do you happen to have the old install that I could roll back to the last version?
Carrie Drew

Since this issue has not been reported by any of our 30+ testing districts using V1.8, it would be beneficial to the PSCB Development to explore this issue with you via a conference call.

If interested, please contact me via email:

I noticed a stray s at the bottom left of our quick lookup page. We've had this plugin installed for a little while (since January). If I removed customization, the s went away so I knew it was a plugin putting it there. I just took an online class on how to customize PS and started looking in all of our customized pages for this stray s. As it would turn out, I found it on one of the pages in this plugin. quicklookup.PSCB_Custom_Tabs.content.footer.txt
There is an s at the very beginning outside the first script tag. Just wanted to let someone know in case it's still there for someone else.
We have version 1.8
Thanks, Ginger

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The typo will be fixed in the next release of the plugin.

Rob Staats

It's a great plugin I just have something.
Not all the courses appear in the student stat comparison are I need to check something or it's related to enrollment or something.
Only two courses appear out of 11

Osama Yunes

In grade comparison section, the course name will only appear if the class has entered assignments for the selected store code.
