Entering Skills Grades

Skills grades are grades that are not calculated. Teachers manually enter marks for these subjects based on summative assessments by entering skills grades. Skills grades use E, P, I, or N marks.

 

When are Skills Grades used?

For grades K, 1, 2, and 3, Skills Grades are used for both Progress Reports (mid-term) and Grade Reports (end-of-term). Progress Reports only print the overall subject grade (Religion, Math, and Integrated Language Arts), not the standards. Grade Reports show only the standards attached to those grades.

For grades 4, 5, and 6, Skills Grades are used on Grade Reports for the individual standards attached to the overall subjects. (The overall subjects are averages of the assignments entered in the gradebook.)
