Is there a setting that will allow PowerSchool to to calculate any missing score as a zero? (This would include an assignment that has 20 scores, yet 2 students haven't turned in the work. I put in the 20 scores but leave the other 2 blank. I want blanks to calculate as if a zero is in place. Therefore my students will see the affect of the missing work and know it's missing if there is no score).
You could create a Special Code in District Grade Scales and connect it to a grade scale.
Enter a zero and a missing mark (!) if you want the gradebook to calculate and student/parent will also know the assignment is missing.
