When the Dashboard opens, there are a few areas of information to be aware of:
If you have more than one child linked to your account, you can switch between them by pressing the profile menu at the top right of the screen.
You can change the "Term" view by pressing the menu to the right of Class Overview. It is recommended to leave the term set to the full year term (i.e., 22-23).
Each class tile will display the current percentage mark. Elementary classes do not use traditional percentage marks, so class tiles will display either an image icon, or two hyphens indicating that no percentage grade exists.
Scrolling down the page slightly will display the Assignments section - upcoming assignments, recent assignments, and assignment status (late, missing, incomplete, and late).
Scrolling further down the page will display the Attendance section and the School Bulletin section (announcements from the school).
To view more information within a specific class, press on the class tile to open. There are a number of areas of information that can be expanded.
The various reporting terms are listed at the top of the screen (i.e., R1, R2, R3, R4). The current reporting period should already be highlighted, but you may switch between them to view progress from one reporting period to the next.
The teacher's name and a link to email will be listed just below the reporting periods.
The current percentage mark will be displayed just beneath the word Grade. Elementary classes do not use traditional percentage marks, so two hyphens will be displayed indicating that no percentage grade exists.
Next will be a summary of all Absences in that class. Elementary attendance is taken in the Homeroom class and will only be displayed in the details for that class.
Below the absences section is the teacher's course comment for the reporting period in view. This is usually a general comment from the teacher regarding the overall progress of the child during that reporting period. Press the comment to view it in its entirety.
The various class assignments are listed below the teacher comments. Press the assignment to expand the view to include the assignment-specific teacher comment (if entered) and the assignment description (if entered). Assignment marks will not be displayed for elementary classes or junior high CTF courses (Career and Technology Foundations).
*HINT: For elementary classes, you will often see the word "Excluded" on an assignment. This simply means that the assignment is excluded from contributing to a percentage grade, which elementary classes do not use.
Viewing Class Outcomes (Standards) and Grades
From the class details screen, press the Standards tab (to the right of the Assignments tab).
From the list of learner outcomes (standards), press each one to view the description of the outcome in its entirety, along with the evaluated grade.
E=Excellent, P=Proficient, A=Adequate, L=Limited C=Consistent, F=Frequent, O=Occasional, S=Seldom
