I love this plugin. I just deleted the old one and installed the PSCB one. Can you explain why the All tab in Normal View doesn't always include all historical information? For example, for my high school students at one school it only shows through the previous school year. To actually see all on the All tab we have to turn on the Detail View. It was the same way with the old plugin.

The current historical year tab will appear when you first store grades for current school year.

We are showing a "None" tab for records that exist in a termid that does not exist at the current school. For example, our high school has semester and yearlong classes. The middle schools have quarter, semester, and yearlong. A current high school student will have the semester and yearlong middle school grades on the correct year tab, but all the quarter classes show up on a "None" tab. Any idea how I could make the correction?

Very nice!

I'm getting a whole bunch of credit types for some stored grades, but when you click on the grade, the credit type is correct. Any idea why that's happening? We used to add a credit type to indicate the year the class was taken and it looks like it might be pulling all credit types that are in any stored grade for that class for any year.

Confirm that you have installed and enabled the PSCB - Customization (Historical Grades Tabs) v1.2 plugin.

The report results include two Credit Type Column.

The Course Credit Type column will list all credit types assigned to the Course.

The Stored Grade Credit Type column will list the credit type(s) assigned to the stored grade.

I updated the plugin to 1.3, but some of the credit types are still wrong. Courses that are attached to a department are showing correctly, but those without a department are wrong.

Peggy Medema

Does the credit type display correctly if you assign a department to the course?

Just wanted to let you know that there is a typo in the Out of Sync Numeric Grades. When you submit, it shows, "Out of Sync Nuneric Grades" in the base of the report.

Thanks. We will correct in the next release of the report.

Just to confirm... I have the Historical Grades Tab 3.0 placed on here by Jason Treadwell. Do I delete it and then install this one? Thank you!

Yes. Older PDS plugins should be deleted before installing PSCB plugins.

We have the 1.4 version of this plugin installed. On some of the students we noticed that it is displaying what is a school number in the department field rather than the department code. The pattern that seems to fit is the course above the incorrect record has a 5 digit course number that contains an alpha character (which are our athletic and dual credit courses. It seems the next two courses after the 5 digit course pull 43919104 (school number for one of our campuses) and then it seems to correct itself until it gets to the next 5 digit course number. How can I modify the page to get the correct department code? Or even hide the department code if we have to. We love the tabs. I would attach a screen shot but can't see how to do that.

Please send a screenshot to:

Also - Does the five digit course number contain a lower case letter?

Most of the stored grades are showing no department. Where in the historical plugin 1.4 is the department pulled from?

The department is pulled from the following location.
Table: Courses
Field: Sched_Department

I had the old one and have try to update I have PS 19x........but for some reason for the 20-21 I now have 2 20-21 tabs.....and the only way to see grades that have been entered manually from summer is to click on View Detail....and I cannot figure out how to correct this....

I just installed v1.6 and it appears as though the filter isn't working. I don't see any drop down to select or any filters on the columns themselves. We just updated our PS application to 21.4.4.

You need to install and enable PSCB - Base Resources 3.3.

We have a department in our course setup, Hlth & PE. The display when using this plugin is showing as HLTH &PE. Is there a way to correct that display so it doesn't show the & as amp? It doesn't seem to know how to handle the &.

Using "&" in a Department name is not recommended because of the issue you encountered.

I would suggest you change the department name to one that does not include the "&" and then assign the new name to each corresponding course.
