Q: How do I create and distribute Standards-Based Progress Report?

A: You can create Progress Reports in any class through the Progress Reports area of the Reports tab.

The Standards-Based Progress Report tool is a great way to review students' progress and share this information with them and their parents. Progress Reports can be created and then published when you are ready to share them with the students in your class. Students and Parents in the roster can then be notified of the available Progress Reports using the Email Roster feature.
