The grade sheet for Standard Classes can display a "Projected Term Grade" depending on settings configured for your school. The "Projected Term Grade" gives teachers the ability to see what a student's current average grade is based on the grades they have received in previous terms.

The Projected Term Grade appears on the grade sheet when two conditions are met:

  • First, the class whose grade sheet you are viewing must belong to a 'Child' Term.
  • Second, at least one other 'version' of the class in another 'Child' Term must be concluded.

Let's take a look at these conditions in more detail.

The Projected Term Grade will only appear for classes that belong to a 'Child' Term associated with a Parent Term. Finding out whether or not a particular class belongs to a 'Child' Term is easy:

1. As an Administrator, navigate to the Terms tab on the left side of the page.

2. If a Term is a 'Child' Term, it will appear indented beneath a Parent Term. Furthermore, when you select the term, the Parent Term field should be filled in with the Parent Term.

In the example above, "Term 2 2018-2019" is a 'Child' Term that is assigned to "School Year 2018-2019".

Next, you must make sure that there is another class with the same attributes (such as Report Title, Grade Scale, and Class Type) in multiple 'Child' Terms and that at least one of those classes has been concluded.

In the example above, each "Art" class shares the same Class Title, Report Title, and Teacher, as well as other attributes. Furthermore, the "Art" class in Term 1 has been concluded (note the double-asterisks at the beginning of its name). This is important because Gradelink needs to know which classes to look at when producing a projected grade.

You should now see a projected grade column on the right side of the grade sheet.
