Subject-Specific Criteria for QuickSchools Report Cards

January 28, 2012

Most Report Cards simply display marks and/or letter grades for each subject being evaluated. But some schools want to show evaluations based on additional criteria.

In the example above, we’ve created a report card for Alvin DeSilva using the “Three Four Galore” Report Card template. Alvin is taking English and Math. And under English, you’ll notice that he also received evaluations for Reading, Writing and Speaking. You can configure your own criteria for specific subjects, as this article describes.

The first step is to select a Report Card template that has a section for “Subject-Specific Criteria”. If you go to the “Report Cards” > “Setup Report Cards” menu, you can click on “Change Template” to select a different report card template. The selected template will appear on the left, with configuration elements on the right. Look for the “Subject-Specific Criteria” section on the report card.

Once the module is turned on, you will see a new “Setup Subject-Specific Criteria” sub-menu appear next to “Setup Report Cards”. Clicking on it will show the screen below. You’ll notice that this module has 2 sections. The top section shows all the subject templates, while the bottom section shows all subjects, and the subject templates assigned to those subjects.

Once you have created a few subject templates, you can then use the table below to assign these templates to specific subjects. Just click on the third column next to the subject name. A dropdown will appear. Then select a subject template from the dropdown, or click on “—CLEAR TEMPLATE –“ to clear the template.
