Configuring a Conduct Section in Report Cards

October 1, 2018

Report Card season is coming up fast. Have you configured your report cards in QuickSchools? For first timers, or schools looking to update their report card formats, here’s a tip on how you can add a Conduct (sometimes called “Behaviour”, “Citizenship” or “Character Development”) section to your report cards. This section is more typical of elementary/primary grade levels.

There are 2 main ways of setting up a conduct section, and they both have their own benefits and drawbacks:

  • Set up “Conduct” directly on the Report Card Template (Main method)
  • Set up “Conduct” as a Subject

Some key differences are discussed below:

“Conduct” directly on Report Cards “Conduct” as a Subject
Configuration

The Conduct criteria is configured ONCE directly into the Report Card configuration.

Configuration

You have to create a “Conduct” subject, and link it to the appropriate teacher and students.
You then need to create a “Subject-Specific Criteria” template for your Report Cards that contains your “Conduct” criteria.
Finally, the subject template will need to be applied to all “Conduct” subjects.
NOTE: From term to term, if new Conduct subjects are created, you’ll need to re-assign the subject template to that “Conduct” subject within the Report Card session.

Usage

Teachers need to use (and can only use) the main “Report Cards” menu to save evaluations for each student. This means that teachers have to open each individual student record card to enter evaluations

Usage

In addition to the main “Report Cards” menu, teachers can use the “Subject-Based” screen to submit evaluations for students, which is a lot simpler.

Restrictions / Limitations

Report Card Template must support Report Card Level Criteria. Most templates support this.

Restrictions / Limitations

Report Card Template must support the “Conduct” type Subject-Specific Criteria. Example template is “Contemporary Quarters

Other Drawbacks

None. This is the main method.

Other Drawbacks

Since Conduct appears as a subject, the Conduct subject will need to be hidden / ignored as appropriate from other modules like Transcripts or Master Scheduler
