General Questions:
How do I make a grade change after a posting period?
Go into Educator Access Plus/My Gradebook.
Mouse over Grade Posting Status to get the dropdown list to appear, and under Previous Grading Periods choose the grading period they need to make a change for (ex. 1st 9 wks)
Highlight the gradebook they want to make the change to and click "Change Grades"
Teachers will then be prompted to enter a reason for changing the grades.  Once they enter their reason, they click Yes to proceed.
They will then be taken to that gradebook.  They will have 2 hours to make any changes they need.
Once they are done, they can click the Back button, and it will take them back to the Grade Posting Status Screen - the button on that gradebook will now say "Complete Grade Changes" - click that button.
This will close their gradebook and allow the change to be processed.

How do I verify that my grades are ready for post (determined by your campus administrator)?

Click on My Gradebook
Click on Grade Posting Status drop down/ Grade Posting Status for Progress Report 2
Check the boxes you have completed or use the Mark All as Completed
*This will signify to the office that you have completed your grades for posting, however, grades will be auto-posting.

How do I show students their progress report grades by ID only (from the gradebook)?
Go to Display Options
Click Student Display
Click radial button to Suppress Name Completely
Click Student ID
Click Save
*This will allow you to show only ID#s and grades to students as a class if you choose.  You can also use the same settings if you wish to Print, but instead Go to Reports/ Grade Sheet Reports and Clone a template, and uncheck student name but select student ID.

How do I show dropped students in my gradebook)?
Go to Display Options
Click Student Display
Click radial button to Show Dropped Students
Click Save
*This will allow you to see any dropped students and their grades.
