Displaying SBG Grades to Parents and Students (D12/E8)

May 29, 2019

If you’re using our Standards-Based Gradebook (SBG) app from our App Store, you have the option of sharing the latest grades and assessments with your parents/students. This is simply done by configuring the app in QuickSchools:

Configure Access for the Standards-Based Gradebook (SBG) App

Configure Access for the Standards-Based Gradebook (SBG) App

There are several options for restricting parent/student access to SBG grades from their respective portals. Here we discuss the available options:

DEFAULT (FULL) ACCESS

  • Show List of Standards
  • Show Grade for each Standard
  • Show Assessments for each Standard
  • Show Grade for each Assessment
HIDE GRADES FOR STANDARDS

  • Show List of Standards
  • Show Assessments for each Standard
  • Show Grade for Each Assessment

Grade for each Standard is hidden

HIDE ASSESSMENTS

  • Show List of Standards
  • Show Grade for each Standard

Assessments are completely hidden

LIMITED ACCESS

  • Show List of Standards ONLY

All Grades and Assessments are hidden

Default (FULL) Access

By default, students and parents have full access to all data from the Gradebook, which includes the following:

  • List of Standards
  • Grade for each Standard (including Calculation Formula)
  • List of Assessments for each Standard
  • Grade for each Assessment

Here’s an illustration of what all users see by default (including teachers):

Clicking on “See Gradebook” for a particular subject lists standards for that subject:

Clicking on a standard will display the assessments for that standard, along with grades for each assessment. The calculated grade for the standard is also displayed:

Hide Grade for Standards

In this case, the school may decide to hide the calculated grade for each standard, especially if you feel like a running calculation is misleading. And if you leave the Assessments visible, what you end up with is the following info for parents:

  • List of Standards
  • List of Assessments for each Standard
  • Grade for each Assessment

Here’s an illustration of parent access:

Hide Assessments for Standards

In this case, the school has decided not to share the details of each assessment, since it might be too much information for parents to handle. And if the school decides to leave the Grade for the Standards visible, what you end up with is a list of Standards and their corresponding running calculation for grade:

  • List of Standards
  • Grade for each Standard

Here’s an illustration:

Hide Grade for Standards and Assessments

In this case, school wants to give only limited access to parents. Parents will only see a list of Standards for each subject, without any grades or assessments.

Here’s an illustration of what that looks like:
