Grade Entry Parameters can be changed to show just seniors on the Add/Modify Course Grades screen making it easier to enter grades for just the seniors in a course.
If your district uses Numeric Grades you should confirm the Report Card Parameter settings:
Convert Rankbook Alpha Grades for Numeric = No
*(Yes converts Gradebook/Rankbook numeric grades to alpha)
When grade entry is completed for seniors, be sure to repeat the steps above to set the Grade Entry Parameters to Grades 9, 10, 11 only for end of the year grading for the rest of the students.
Reminder! After all end of year grade entry is completed, be sure to adjust the Grade Entry Parameters to include Grades 9, 10, 11, and 12 so that you are ready for the next school year.
