Final Grade Setup
Understanding Reporting Terms and Store Codes
Effective August 2017 ● Version 3.0
This document was written to provide schools with a better understanding of how PowerSchool utilizes
grading periods. A form is provided at the end of the document to assist the IT Department with collecting
specific begin and end dates for Progress Reports and Grading periods at your school. Please read this
document carefully and then follow the directions to fax, scan, or e-mail the form to the IT Department.
Reporting Terms and Store Codes
PowerSchool uses Reporting Terms and Store Codes to refer to the containers, or bins, for cumulative
grades.
PowerSchool Administrator users can view and select different Store Codes, under Historical
Grades. Store Codes are used to manage grades that will appear on report cards and transcripts.
Store Codes are also linked to Reporting Terms.
Teachers can view and select different Reporting Terms in their Gradebook, based on the term
assigned to a class/section. Gradebook assignments are averaged under each Reporting Term.

Understanding Final Grade Setup
The IT Department will create a Reporting Term for every final grade a teacher submits using Gradebook.
The term dates seen in the final grade setup preview, below, align with dates shown on the Years and
Terms page. Your school may have multiple terms to accommodate year-long, semester, or quarter classes.
In that same manner, each term will have multiple Reporting Terms for teachers to submit grades. For
example, in the table below, Semester 1 courses would have three Reporting Terms: P1, P2, and S1.
In the process of determining the first and last day for each of your Progress Report Grading periods (P1,
P2, P3, P4, etc.) dates, ask yourself the following questions:
How many progress reports will a student receive before a semester is over?
If more than one, does each work independently or do they need to be cumulative from one
reporting period to the next?
IMPORTANT! Please keep in mind that your choice (independent or cumulative) globally affects the
settings for all teachers Gradebook.
The examples below show how Progress Report 2 (P2) can be used to average a grade independently or
cumulative, from first day of school.

Please use the form below to fax, scan or e-mail the necessary information to the IT Department. Please
also feel free to add additional reporting terms or enter N/A if a term is not needed. *If your school has
any classes that end after 6wks or 12wks, be sure to include those dates in the form.
