When new courses get synchronized to Edsby they aren't automatically part of any reporting periods by default.
In many cases this doesn't matter until it is time for teachers to start filling out their report card sheets. However, teachers that want to set up "weighting buckets" for their gradebook can only do so if their class belongs to a reporting period.
Adding classes to a reporting period
Users must have an Edsby role of School Admin or School IT to create reporting periods and deploy report cards. To do this:
- Open the Classes Zoom
- If not deploying to every class use Filters to narrow list to only those requiring a report card. You may also use the Gear icon to pick and choose explicit classes from the list.
- In the Classes drop-down menu choose "Add to report card":
- In the Reporting Period Setup form, use the "Add to which reporting period" field to select the current term. All other parameters can usually be left at their default settings.
- Click "Save"
