This report does not appear to be working for me? I found a student that had missing and exempt statuses in their quick lookup but when I run this for the student I get "No Records Found"

There used to be a gradebook categories report with this bundle. Is there one somewhere that does work with PowerTeacher Pro?
Thanks,
Doug

A PTP gradebook categories report will be included in the next update of the Grading Reports bundle. The target date for this update is mid September.

Is there an update on release date? Thank you!

Is there still a possibility that the custom grading report bundle will be updated to include a report to identify term and category setup in the PTPro Gradebook? We are a large district and this report was helpful in the previous custom grading report bundle with PT Gradebook.

A final grade setup report for PowerTeacher Pro is currently under development. It will be included in the next release of the PSCB - Custom Reports (Grading) bundle. No release date has been set yet.

Good morning,

The Entry/Exit does not work for the exit portion. Is there something that changed?

It would be great to have the Class - Grades and Assignments report to be viewed with more than one section. For example, we have 6 sections of Art and I would like to check all of the assignments for Art. Can we make it so that we can choose more than one section at a time? Thank you!

In the Class- grades and assignment scores, we have noticed students that have switched classes remain on this report. We have removed the old scores from the DDE and the data still lives on the report. It makes it difficult for us to evaluate a class. Can we get that removed?

In the Class- grades and assignment scores, we have noticed students that have received an Exempt for an assignment, it pulls as a blank on the report. It makes it look like the student is missing the assignment rather than excused from the assignment.

It also does not pull if no grades have been entered for an assignment. It would be super helpful to see that an assignment has been created and there are no grades. We track the amount of assignments teachers are making.

Can we update that as well? Thank you!

This not a reporting error. The Class - Grades and Assignment Scores report displays assignments and scores from the teacher gradebook. The report is designed to show all assignments for both active and inactive students in the class. We may add an Active/InActive Students filter in the future.

It is not that they are inactive. They have switched classes/sections. We have removed the assignments and grades associated from the DDE and the student's data remains in the old section. Thanks!

The Class - Grades and Assignment Scores report is currently designed to show only assignments that have scores.
Assignments with no scores will not appear.

We will place your request to display all assignments on our enhancement list.

Regarding blank scores, a future update will also display assignment icons that have been entered for an assignment.

A Grade Book Categories report will be include in the next release of the PSCB - Custom Reports (Grading) bundle. Several new grading reports will also be included.

The schedule release date for the updated grading bundle is 11/1/2018.

What exactly is the Gradebook - Missing Grades reporting? I ran it for an elementary school that does not record grades in PTP for grades K-2 but students are scheduled in classes. Only 41 records were returned. Seems like they would be on that report at least.

This report lists missing/blank grades in the Teacher's PT Pro grade book. The report is intended for use with teachers keeping a "traditional" grade book in PTP Pro. It is not intended for elementary schools that use standards base grading.

Thank you Rob. We do not use standards base grading at our elementary schools. Reading, Math, Sci, Soc. Studies get 0-100 set up on a numeric grade scale.

I just have two suggestions, one that I found useful and one I think all would find useful.
- Either outright exclude classes/sections that do not store grades, or have the ability to exclude them from the report in the parameters. Without this feature, it's adding a lot of classes that don't use the gradebook, home room, study hall, etc. This would clean up the report.
- Include a column for current section size. If for some reason a class has 0 kids in it, faculty lunch, a schedule placeholder, teacher's duties, etc. the gradebook setup for that class is not as necessary so could help identify ones that could be ignored. I had classes like independent studies that would be storing grades but the kids were dropped from it, so just implementing the first suggestion would not completely address the need for class size to appear on the report.

Thank you for your suggestions.

In the next update of the plugin, courses that do not store grades will automatically be excluded from the report results.

Not yet sure about implementing your second suggestion.
