· Gradebook resolution issues: For teachers, they need to set their computers at 1280x960 which is the optimum for Gradebook. Also, having the view on the browser set to 100% helps. If not they will be missing pieces of what they can see like the scroll bar, and they will not be able to navigate over to items.
· OTHER Concept: I noticed teachers were using the “Other” concept and putting in like Language or Comprehension. Please let them know that anything they put under the “Other” concept will NOT show up in the Report card. This concept was created for the dual Immersion teachers to use for recording scores for their Dual immersion concepts like Reading –Chinese. It can be used for SPED teachers to track students who they teach w/o having it show in the report card.
· Granite Assignments by Student Report: Thanks to Craig, this report will now allow teachers to select all students from one of more class lists. They will not have to run the report individually for each student.
· Gradebook in Spanish: I will be sending the Gradebook for parents and students out in Spanish so you can pass this out at SEP conference or send it home with students along with the Portal navigation which should be completed soon. Hope this will help your parents set up their portal.
