Viewing Class Performance
When you select a Course from Courses on the side-panel (see #1 in the image) it will open with the Students tab highlighted (#2). The Students table lists all student in the course along with their effort category percentages and an “Overall %.”
- The window on the right side (#3) is displaying the active Term. Click on the Term window to change Terms or select a duration (e.g., Last 7 days)
- You may sort the table by any column by selecting the up/down arrow to the right of the desired column (#4).
- The Students table includes a Search window (#5) to easily find a particular student’s performance.
- The Overall % column (#6) displays a weighted average of the four effort categories.
The default weights for each of the effort categories are: Ready 20%, Participation 20%, On Task, 30%, and Behavior 30%. Unscored categories register as zero percent. If one or more effort categories will not be used, set the category’s weight to zero and change the other category weights so that they sum to 100%. (See the Help Center article: “Category Weights.”)
Including Overall Effort Percentages (OEPs) in your electronic gradebook
It’s a good idea to include student effort data in your electronic gradebook even if it does not impact the student’s academic grade. Including each student’s OEP (#6) in your gradebook will allow students and parents to compare and contrast academic performance with in-class effort (see the Help Center article: “Gradebook – adding student effort scores to your gradebook”).
