Copy Gradebook

October 12, 2015

QuickSchools now has a feature that will allow teachers to copy grades from another gradebook into their existing gradebook. Here’s how it works:

Click the Students name on your Gradebook Roster to view students grades

Click the Students name on your Gradebook Roster to view students grades

First, click on the student name on the Gradebook roster. This will bring up an additional menu:

View all courses that the student is taking (or has taken) in the current academic term

View all courses that the student is taking (or has taken) in the current academic term

From here, you can view all subjects that the student is taking (or has taken), including dropped/deleted courses. If you click on a subject, it will bring up a PDF of the students grade from that gradebook (which you can print for your records). However, what’s interesting here is the Copy function. Clicking on it will bring up the copy interface:

From here, there are 2 things you can do. First, right at the top, you can include additional students to be copied from the same gradebook. Just include their names in the provided area. Secondly, you can map columns from the original gradebook to your existing gradebook. If this is a simple section change that you are already teaching, the columns will map automatically based on the column names. However, if you are taking over a class from another teacher, you will need to create the corresponding columns before hand. Or, you can opt to simply create a single column, and only copy over the final grade from the other gradebook:

Once you click “Copy Grades”, the system will let you know how many cells were copied over. If your gradebook already has grades, the copy will NOT override your existing entries with data from the other gradebook.

Finally, you can review the imported cells which are highlighted. And when you’re happy, simply Save to commit your changes.

Do let us know if there are improvements you’d like to see in this feature. Thanks!
