Gradebook / Grading Scales for Kindergarten

May 23, 2013

With QuickSchools, you can set up /use a Kindergarten grading scale for your Gradebook.

Creating the Kindergarten Grading Scale

If you have access to Grading Setup (administrators can use the Features Page to configure access), just click on the “Add Grading Scale” button.

You can setup different scales for different subjects. The easiest scale is to simply assign a number to a letter grade assessment. Here’s an example:

This method is for an administrator to create a shared grading scale for all teachers in the school. Individual teacher can create their own grading scales as well, but these would not be shared.

Using the Kindergarten Grading Scale

Once the grading scale has been set up, you can go to the Gradebook menu, and start using the new grading scale. Here’s an example of a gradebook for Kindergarten:

You’ll see from this example, that you can use the Gradebook not only to assess specific skills or evaluations, but you can also add public and private comments. Public comments are available to parents via the Parent Portal. Just make sure that after selecting the appropriate grading scale, when you add a new column, the total marks for the column should match the highest grade in the grading scale (so in this case, the highest grade of “E” is 3 points).
