Bulk Sync Gradebook with Report Cards

If you need to run reports on Report Cards prior to locking/publishing, and you have a hard time getting all your teachers to Submit Grades from Gradebook, we have a new feature that allows admins to pull the grades from all Gradebooks into the Report Cards. Check out the new “Sync Grades” button, available when you “Manage” Report Cards:

This process will run in the background, since it can take several minutes to run depending on the complexity of your Report Card template, and the number of active students you have in your report card session.

Scale Score in Gradebook Templates

When editing a Gradebook Template, there is now a column to specify the Scale Score functionality:

This feature is only available if you’ve enabled the Scale Score feature in the “Report Cards” module on the Settings Page:
