I don't see that behavior in my gradebook. When I choose Drop Lowest by Category it gives me one column to choose a category. The only way I can get more is by clicking the small + button.

Thanks for the try ... my version of PowerSchool does NOT LOOK LIKE your screenshot... I guess there are different "Flavors" and our flavor is less tasty than yours.

Re: PowerSchool Gradebook: Check Dropped Low Scores

I still have not gotten an answer - but I'm finding that is pretty typical for PowerSchool ...

Apparently there are various different types of powerschool ... and the one we have does not even have a "Drop Grade" feature ... pretty darned slack --- in my opinion anyway.

Hi Tim, what PowerSchool are you using? Is your gradebook PowerTeachere Pro?

In part, the login page.  This is what regular PowerSchool SIS users see. (see attached)  Judging from the screenshot it looks like you are either using PowerSchool Learning or the Unified Classroom. Those assignments are created in PowerSchool Learning/UC Class Pages and not PowerTeacher Pro gradebook.

Thank you for reaching out in the Community! @tmcknight @molly6 

 

Thank you for jumping in the thread to assist! @JeffG9 @DanM3 

 

I have provided a link to an article within the Unified Classroom Teacher help site that should walk through the steps to drop the lowest score Jeff mentioned above.

Re: PowerSchool Gradebook: Check Dropped Low Scores

Thanks for the try .... I guess some of us are just in the Ghettos ... Power School "Learning" is, I am learning, not like real Gradebooks that the rest of you have 😞

 

Their "annotator" sucks too ... I have another thread going where about 1/3 of my kids "turn ins" show up as blank docs in annotator .. but are there in Google Drive ... problem is ... they are docs that I really need to be able to DRAW on in order to offer worthwhile feedback to the students ...
