Final Grade Setup Page 2
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.

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.
