@QiangY 

Thank you for reaching out and we are glad to assist you from PowerSchool Community!

 

Final Grade Setup defines the final grade bins (or final grade reporting terms) available for each class in a given school year. This also includes the date ranges that determine which assignments are associated with a final grade. It is critical when creating terms in the correct order, from largest to smallest starting with the full year.

 

Using the setup in the image below as an example, teachers assign a year-long (2016-2017) class would see Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4, S1, S2, and Y1 as available final grades. Teachers assigned to Semester 1 classes would see Q1, Q2, and S1 as available final grades.  Teachers assigned to Semester 2 classes would see Q3, Q4, and S2 as available final grades.

Terms should not overlap if they are equal terms. According to the above setup, teachers are able to set up a separate calculation for each final grade. This setup also allows administrators to store grades at various intervals throughout the year, not just at the end of a scheduling term. For instance, at the end of the first semester, administrators can store Q2 grades as well as S1 grades. I suggest confirming the Years & Terms are set up correctly within the district.

 

If you still face the issue, I recommend reaching out to the PowerSchool Designated Support Contact within your district who will be able to look into the process of creating Final Grades for a student and help troubleshoot if the start/end dates of the term overlapping.

Re: Add Final Grade

Hi,Reshma。Thank you for your detailed explanation。

After I  correct the  final grade starting/ending time, do I need to do anything else to correct the incorrectly displayed grade? For example, recalculating all grades?

Once you get your Final Grade/Reporting terms corrected, based on the assignment due dates the teachers used, some of their assignments may now be in different terms. Be sure the teachers know that you have changed the dates and that they may have to adjust due dates to ensure the assignments are in the correct terms.

 

After this is done, teachers should definately use the Recalculate Final Grades function--even if nothing has changed in their gradebooks.

 

The Recalculate Final Grades function is innocuous and can be run at any time, but it currently cannot be run from the Admin side--teachers will have to do it themselves.
