In Gradelink, Terms are grading periods that correspond to a portion of the academic year. Terms are defined by a Start Date and an End Date, which means you can structure your academic year however you'd like: Semesters, Trimesters, Quarters, or something different altogether.

You can create new terms whenever you want, which means you don't have to wait until the end of the current school year to start preparing for the next. 

Transitioning between terms is easy: you can copy classes and students from one term to the next, and then all you need to do is mark the new term as active and mark the old term as inactive. Gradelink provides tools to accommodate your school’s unique needs and helps ensure that preparing for the new school year will only take a few simple steps.
