The Subject-Based grading screen is designed to make entering a class’ worth of grades and comments quickly and efficiently – without opening a single report card! And, like everything else about QuickSchools Report Cards, it’s entirely customizable. Not only can you configure it to your liking with Subject-Specific Criteria, but also when we create a custom template, we can make all sorts of special grading and comment fields available in the Subject-Based grading screen.
To use the Subject-Based Grading Screen…
1 – Go to to to the Report Cards module
2 – Select the “Subject-Based” tab
3 – Select the teacher name & class
Now, you’ll be at the Subject-Based grading screen! Depending on how your Report Cards are configured or customized, the screen might look a bit different. Subject-Specific Criteria will appear in the Subject-Based grading screen, and depending on the Report Card template, the screen will be configured differently as well. In addition, if your template draws marks and grades from the Gradebook, these will already appear on the screen, and if your template has room for comments, there will be space for these as well. Though there are all sorts of ways the Subject-Based grading screen can look, here are a few different examples.
Classic White – this public template is a popular choice, and very flexible. Currently, it is configured to show marks, grades, and comments.
St. Monica Catholic School Template – this private template is a great report card for showing conduct grades alongside academic grades. It also has space for exams and semester grades.
Carden Arbor View School Template – this private template shows a work ethic grade alongside academic grades. While it supports letter grades, it is currently configured only to show marks. Also, at the specifications of the original design, the Subject-Based screen does not show a line for comments as those are only entered directly onto the Report Card.
The Subject-Based grading screen can be a very convenient way to enter many grades and comments at a time. At the same time, it can be customized along with the Report Card to allow you to enter just about any information you would like. Of course, if you need any help or would like to request any customizations, feel free to chat us anytime! 🙂
