Thank you for using TeacherPlus Gradebook! We've released several new features, improvements, and feature fixes in this release, including our long-awaited Teacher Defined Fields feature. Highlights of this update include:
|Teacher Defined Fields||Fields have been added to each Teacher’s Gradebook that they can customize to store a variety of data.|
|Student Sort Order in Reports||All Reports will now sort in the same way as the Student list in the Gradebook.|
|All Marking Periods setting for "Save as Excel"||When saving to Excel we have added a setting to export either the Current Marking period or all Marking Periods.|
|Missing Students in Skill Analysis Screen||Fixed an issue that would hide Student names in the skills entry screen if they were hidden in the main view.|
|Marking Period Dates and Period Attendance||Period Attendance will now display properly even if some Marking Periods don’t have a beginning date.|
Teacher Defined Fields
Each Teacher now has 10 fields they can define to contain any information they may need to capture and store in their Gradebook. The easiest way to access these fields is to create a new view (or edit your existing view) and use the “Rename” button to define your own fields. Then you can add them to the view. These fields will persist through each Gradebook and data entered for students in 1 Gradebook will follow them to any other Gradebooks that the teacher has.
Student Sort Order in Reports
We have changed the way Students in reports sort to match the way they sort in the main grid of the Gradebook.
Auto Save Implemented in several screens
We have improved several screens in the Gradebook Manager to automatically save data as it is changed. Those screens are:
- Semester and Final Averages
- Demographic Fields
- Time Zone Settings
All Marking Periods Setting for "Save as Excel"
When exporting an Excel document, we have added a dialogue box that will ask if you want to export the currently selected Marking Period or All Marking Periods.
Missing Students in Skill Analysis Screen
Fixed an issue that would hide Student names in the skills entry screen if they were hidden in the main view.
Improvement to Marking Period Dates and Period Attendance
Period Attendance will now properly display if all Marking Periods don’t have a date assigned to them.
