In Classroom, a gradebook is a collection of assignments which are linked to students using student groups. You may configure your gradebooks to coincide with the way you work. You can have one gradebook for all your students, one gradebook per period, one gradebook per subject, etc.
Consider the assignments you give to your students and the way in which you grade them. If you teach the same subject, like Science, and you give all your students the same assignments, you may want to use just one gradebook. If you teach one subject, but have different assignments for each class or period, you should have gradebooks for each. If you are a team teacher, you may need one gradebook for English and one gradebook for Social Studies. The purpose of the gradebook is to connect students to assignments, and ultimately to grade the students on their body of work.
With Classroom, you have the flexibility to work as you need!
If you are logging in to Classroom for the first time, you will be asked to create a gradebook.
If you have accessed Classroom before, you can create a new gradebook by selecting Gradebooks, then New Gradebook, from the directory tree on the left of the Home screen, or by selecting the Create Gradebook link from the Work section.
You are presented with a blank New Gradebook template. Navigating the form is easy. There are tabs across the top, Details, Settings, Assignments, Interviews, Scoring, and Grading. Selecting any of the tabs takes you to that section of the form. There are drop down lists which contain the acceptable values for many of the form fields. Use the Continue button to step through the form in wizard fashion and use the Cancel button to exit at any time. Make sure you select Save & Continue or Save & Exit if you want to save your work. At any time you can use the breadcrumbs across the top to access previous screens. You can also use your browser's Back and Forward buttons.
Also, many of the fields listed on the form are optional. While this information is not necessary to create the gradebook it will help build a complete and accurate gradebook.
The Details Tab
The Details tab allows you to give your new gradebook a name and description. The gradebook name is the only required field. We recommend you use a good naming convention. We further suggest you add your last and first name to the end of the gradebook name. Classroom provides a way for your district administrators to deposit assessments into your gradebook. Listing your name ensures they give you the correct assessment.
While the other fields listed on the details tab are optional, we recommend you fill them in. You can enter a detailed description of the contents of your gradebook and the student group(s) it serves. If you need more space to see what you have written, increase the text box area using the icon in the lower right corner of the description field.
In Classroom your classes are pre-populated for you by period. Selecting a class from the list will automatically populate both the Course Code and School fields. If you are not using one gradebook for each class (or period) do not select a class from the list.
Adding the course code to your gradebook provides a method for your district to give you some default curriculum in the form of assignments or assessments. You can chose to keep or delete them as needed by turning on or off the toggle Import properties into gradebook (green is on, gray is off). Search for a course code using any part of the name or a selection from the available filters. Make sure you click Select when you have found the course.
Selecting a school will automatically populate your gradebook with the school's start and end dates. If you do not want this, turn off the Import properties into gradebook toggle (green is on, gray is off).
When you have completed the details select the Save & Continue button. You can return to the details tab at any time to make changes or use the Actions available after the gradebook is created.
The Actions may include Reset All Student Passwords and Generate Class Roster Report.
Generate Class Roster Report
The class roster is a list of the students in the class, with some added columns. The default roster includes two extra columns with the header of Y and N. You can remove a column b clicking the - button to the right of the column header, or you can change the column header by typing in the box. More columns can be added by clicking the +Add Columns button. Click the Download Report button to generate the roster.
In the example below the extra title added was labeled 'Maybe'.
The Settings Tab
There are several sections within the Settings tab. Classroom steps you through each one in sequence. Only three of them are required, as indicated by a yellow warning symbol, Student Groups, Class Terms, and Standards.
Student Groups (Required)
Classroom uses the same student groups as Homeroom. You will see any smart or static groups you have created in Homeroom, as well as groups based on your class rosters. You can attach one or more of these groups to your gradebook using the My Groups button. Select the group using the plus symbol to the right of the group name. You may add more than one group. When you have added your group(s), click Add Selected.
You can also attach other groups to your gradebook if needed. For instance, if you are an intervention specialist and you need to administer assessments to the entire seventh grade, you can select that student group and add it to your gradebook using the Shared Groups button. Use the various filters, school, grade, activity, class or teacher, to narrow down the list of student groups.
Delete Withdrawn Students (Optional)
Class Terms (Required)
Terms are those periods of time in which you give your student group their assignments, and on which you grade. Classroom uses a variety of terms that will coincide with what your school has set. If you chose your school in the details tab, the school year start and end dates will already be entered. By default, the All Year, term is listed. You can include as many terms as you like, the only requirement is that the term's start and end dates fall within the school year. If you do not want a term, use the trash can icon to delete it.
Select additional terms with the Add Class Terms button. Select the terms from the list using the plus symbol to the right of the term name. Once you have chosen the terms make sure you click Add Selected.
If you need to change the date of a term for any reason, double-click in the date field and enter the new date in the form MM/DD/YY. Alternatively, you can use the date selector (calendar icon).
Quickly go to any month or year using the forward or back buttons, or by clicking on the name of the month. Reset by using Clear or change the date to Today. When complete, select Close.
Assignment Dates (Optional)
Assignment Dates can be used to automatically set the open date, due date and close date for every assignment created in the gradebook. Just pick the number of days, and the application will do the rest. If you would prefer not to have default dates for your Assignments, you can clear them out by deleted the numbers and saving the changes.
Assignment Categories (Optional)
Categories can be used to assign a 'weight' to a grouping of assignments. This weighting can then be used to calculate a suggested grade for students.
The categories are free form and created by the teacher and assigned per gradebook. Once the categories are created, they can be assigned to each assignment. The ultimate goal of using the weighting to suggest grades needs a final configuration of Suggestions Ranges, which will be explained next.
Click the Add Assignment Category button to add a category. The category consists of a Name, a Color and a Percentage Weight, and optionally default color bands.
The color is used on the Grading Class Terms tab to help indicate the various categories.
The percentage Weight must sum to exactly 100%.
The Color Bands, if set, will become the default color bands for any new assignment that is associated to the category. For example, if your Homework assignments are always worth 10 points if turned in on time or 5 points if turned in late, the color bands can be set here and need not be reset every time a new Homeroom assignment is created. In this example, click on Color Bands, fill in the required information and click Go.
Update the Name / Label, Color, Min, Max scores for the bands and choose the Passing band. Click Continue. For more information on creating color bands read this article.
When done, click the Save & Continue button.
Suggestion Ranges (Optional)
These ranges are used to give a suggested Class Term Grade for the student based on the sum of the student scores and the various weight of the categories the scores were achieved in. The ranges could be for a letter grade (A - F) or number grade (1 - 4).
Start by deciding how many thresholds you will need, these can be added to or removed later.
For each range, choose a Grading Selection (these are determined by the district) a Color and the Min and Max scores. When adjusting the Min and Max it is always best to start at the bottom (the highest numbers) and work your way up.
Ranges can be deleted by clicking the trash can icon, or added clicking the + icon. Click the Save & Continue button when done
To move beyond Suggestion Rages with out creating any, choose another page from amongst the tabs, or click cancel to exit the Gradebook.
Classroom is at its heart a standards-based gradebook. So we consider it best practice to attach standards to your gradebook. However, we want to provide you with flexibility, so, we have also given you the option to disable the standards on a gradebook. Either selection is what makes this section required.
To disable the standards, select the toggle Disable Standards Requirement (green is on, gray is off).
To add standards to your gradebook, select the Add standards button. Search for the standards and then add them using the plus symbol to the right. Click Add Selected when you have chosen all the standards for your gradebook.
For more information on browsing standards, read the article Using Filters to Browse Content.
Non-Academic Measures (Optional)
Many districts grade students (especially at the elementary level) on character traits that have a relationship with academics success. In Classroom, we categorize these as non-academic standards (measures). They are determined by your district, and may be part of your grading requirements.
To add a non-academic measure, select the Add Non-Academic Measures button.
Choose the measures you want to add by selecting the plus symbol to the right of the name.
Make sure you select Add Selected when you are done.
Classroom provides teachers with an option to organize curricular delivery; integrated or block. An integrated curriculum means the class has a mix of lessons while block means time is spent on one specific lesson or subject. In the block system, students take only one class at a time, focus on that content area, and master it before proceeding to the next block. Use the Curriculum section of Classroom to outline the blocks you will use in your gradebook. Students do not have access to this information.
There are two modes, View and Edit. Select Edit Mode to begin a new block.
You are presented with Classroom's text editor and file manager (MoxieManager). Enter your curriculum, include any links or documents you may need to reference throughout the year. You can add additional blocks by selecting the Add Block button or remove them with Delete Block.
If you chose a course code in the details tab, this area may already be populated for you. Your district administrators can use the course to create a gradebook template, and within that template they can add the district approved curriculum for the course. You can chose to keep it or delete it as needed. If you are a new teacher, or new to teaching the course, you may want to review it and use it as a starting point for your lessons.
A contributor is another educator who has access to view and edit your gradebook. They must initially be added by you. They cannot remove you from your gradebook or delete your gradebook. Once they are a contributor they have full editing privileges, can add or remove assignments, score assignments, grade students and add other contributors. Adding a contributor to your gradebook is an excellent way to share resources with other staff members. It is especially useful if you are team teaching, or if an intervention specialist needs access to your student groups or assignments.
To add a contributor to your gradebook, select Add Contributor.
Search for the staff member using any portion of their name. When you locate them, select the plus symbol to the right of their name to add them. You may add more than one contributor.
When you are done, click Add Selected. To remove a contributor select the X symbol to the right of the name.
Report Card (Optional)
A default report card is associated to the Gradebook. If your district has contracted with SchoolData.net to create a report card configured specifically for your district, you must choose the correct report card from the list of options on the Report Card Settings page.
The Assignments Tab
In Classroom, the word "assignment" is a singular term for any type of coursework or assessment given to the student which could receive some form of a score or grade. You do not have to add assignments to your gradebook, but that is contradictory to the purpose of a gradebook. An assignment does not have to contain any questions, and therefore can simply be a repository for a grade if needed.
The Assignments tab has several sections. The only one that is required is Schedule and only if you chose to add assignments to your gradebook.
Add / Edit / View
As the title implies, you can add, edit or view assignments in this section. You can Add an existing assignment or Compose a new one. If you select Compose, you are directed to the New Assignment template. Read this article for more information on creating a new assignment.
If you select the Add Assignment button, you can choose from your own My Assignment Template Bank or from any of your district's Shared Assignment Template Banks.
In either case, you will be presented with a list of available assignments. You can filter them by using a keyword search, or by selecting any of the options from the More button.
When you find the ones you want to include in your gradebook, select the plus symbol to the right of the assignment name. Then click Add Selected from the lower right corner.
The imported assignments and any assignments you have composed within the gradebook are now a part of the gradebook's assignment list. You can manipulate the assignments by editing them or by using the options from the Actions button. To edit an assignment, select its name or select Actions, then Edit.
The Actions button has the following options to help you manipulate an assignment:
- Edit - use to change the details or settings of an assignment, to alter the questions, to include/exclude student, to score, etc.
- Info - an overview of the assignment, which includes instruction text, standards, and questions
- Export - if you composed the assignment in the gradebook, or added it from a shared district bank, this allows you to push the assignment to your My Assignment Bank for use in other gradebooks
- Analytics - redirects you to the reports area of Classroom
- Delete - will remove the assignment from the gradebook as long as it has not been published and there are no student scores
- Taker - provides a preview of what the assignment will look like when a student takes it on-line
- Clone - makes an exact copy of the assignment within the same gradebook; a unique assignment name is required
- Print - gives you a paper version of the assignment for students to take
- Print Key -
When you are done selecting assignments, you can click Continue to go to the next section of the gradebook.
If you do not want to edit each assignment individually, you can use the Schedule option to set the dates of each assignment window. Select the Set Dates button next to each assignment.
Then enter the Open, End and Close dates/times for the assignment by selecting the month and day from the calendars.
The open date is when a student will be able to see and take the assignment on-line. The end date is when the assignment is officially due and any student submissions before this date will be marked as "Submitted On-Time". The close date allows you to give the students a grace period; they can still take the assignment on-line, but once they submit it, it will be marked as "Submitted Late".
You can also change the dates for an assignment by editing it and selecting the Settings tab, then Dates.
You cannot, however, change the dates of an assignment once it has been published and students have made submissions.
The syllabus provides an outline of all the assignments in a gradebook and is automatically generated when you add an assignment. You can rearrange the order of the assignments by clicking-holding-dragging the assignment name up or down.
You can add hyperlinks to external documents called a Container. These are for reference material, for example, if you are storing documents using Google drive and sharing them with students. If you print the document to a PDF file, the hyperlinks are retained.
The syllabus can be printed and handed out to students. However, if you print to a PDF file you can electronically send it out.
Remember to select Save & Continue as you step through your gradebook and make changes.
The Scoring Tab
Once you have published an assignment w/ questions, students can either take it on-line or via paper and pencil. If they take it on-line, and the questions contained in the assignment are of the type multiple choice, multiple select, or true/false, the assignment is automatically scored. If the questions in the assignment are of the type scored answer, then you need to access the scoring tab of the assignment and enter scores for student submissions.
If your district is using Classroom as a repository for assessment results, you will use the scoring tab to add students' results.
Only published assignments will be displayed in the scoring tab.
The scoring tab gives you a view of the students (along the left), the assignments along the top (hover over the assignment name to see the assignment description), with the scores showing in the body of the page. The Actions button allows the user to change the view of the page as well given access to further functionality.
Use the Actions button to:
- Score Assignments - allows the users to give the students overall scores for the assignment.
- Order Newest to Oldest / Oldest to Newest - changes the order the assignments are displayed in starting from left to right. This selection is a saved preference across all of a users gradebooks.
- Show / Hide Assignment Points - displays / hides a row below the assignment name which shows the total points possible for the assignment. This selection is a saved preference across all of a users gradebooks.
- Show Student Percent / Points - display the percentage or points the student received on the assignments. This selection is a saved preference across all of a users gradebooks.
- Refresh - update the assignments listed and display student submissions in real-time
- Filter Assignments - show published assignments which are closed, past due or still open
- Filter Students - select certain students to score
- Download Template - download an XLSX file in which you can enter the final or overall score for each assignment being displayed
- Upload Scores - upload a filled in template, it should contain the final score for each assignment
Optionally your district may have some report / download options:
- Download Gradebook Assignment Scores - your district may have a default report that displays the gradebooks students, their individual scores and their term scores, if they are available.
To enter the scores for a single assignment which includes the assignment's questions, select the assignment name. The students are listed on the left and each question is listed in its own column. You can alternate the titles of the columns by selecting the toggle Questions/Standards/Labels/Question Text which is the button to the immediate left of the Filter Students button.
There are three options for entering student scores:
- By individual question for all students
- Score in Grid for all questions and all students
- Download/Upload a Template for all questions and all students
Scoring by Individual Questions for All Students
Select the title of an individual question to enter scores for all the students on that one question. If it is a multiple choice or true/false question, use the drop down arrow to select from the options.
If it is a scored answer question, for example an essay, or a question based on a scoring rubric, enter the students' results in the cell on the far right. You can apply a single score to all students as a baseline using the Apply 1 Score button. If the student took the assignment online, you will see their answer in a text box below their name.
When you are done be sure to select Save & Close. You can return to the scores at any time to modify them if needed.
Scoring Using Score in Grid
Select the Score in Grid button from the upper left of the Scoring window.
The students are listed on the left and the questions are listed in columns. Assignments can have a mix of question types and the Score in Grid view allows you to clearly see them all as well as easily enter results.
This is very similar to a spreadsheet and has many of the same data entry features. You can move through the rows and columns using the tab key, or the shift+tab key; the enter key or shift+enter. You can use the arrow keys on your keyboard to move up and down through the options in a cell. You can click into a cell directly to enter a score or use the cell's arrows to select from score options.
If you enter a score that is outside of the allowed range for that question, for example, a 5 when the points on the question can only be 0 through 4, the cell will be encased in a thick black box and you will receive a warning message. You will not be allowed to save any score that is out of range.
If the question uses symbols for scoring, like >A, B, C ... Z, Z+, you can use the cell's arrows to select from the symbol options.
Multiple choice and true/false questions also have options using the cell's arrows. The correct answer is indicated with an asterisks. You can also type a letter choice in each cell.
There are also visual clues on how students are performing on each question as the cells will take on the color of any performance levels, for instance, red for not meeting and green for meeting standard.
Once you have entered all the possible scores, the students' final scores are calculated for you. The status of the students' submissions are listed on the far right.
You must select Save in the upper left corner to save all scores you entered. If you try to exit without saving you will receive a warning message.
You can return to the Score in Grid at any time to add or update results as needed.
Scoring Using a Template
The final option for scoring student assignments is using the Scoring Template. The sequence is to select the Download Template button, enter scores, save the template, and the select the Upload Scores button.
This is a standard spreadsheet, however, it is locked so that you do not accidentally erase or change student names or Student IDs. If you need to copy and paste scores from another source, like the results of ScanTron bubble sheets, please contact us at email@example.com for assistance.
Roll over the title of any column to see information about the question, including scoring ranges. Enter scores directly into the cells. If there are student submissions from essays or word problems you will see their answers in the "QN Answer" columns. You can add scores to the "QN Score" columns.
When you are done entering scores make sure you SAVE the template. We suggest you use a good naming convention for the template, especially if you will be using many templates to load scores.
Now upload the scores to Classroom by selecting the Upload Scores button.
Once the file upload is complete, the scores will be visible in Classroom and you will receive an email telling you whether or not the load was successful.
Classroom Assessments Visible in Homeroom
Only district approved assessments or assignments created and scored in Classroom will be visible in the Homeroom Assessments widget. Please contact your district data administrator for information on how to link a Classroom assignment to a Homeroom assessment.
Once the Classroom assignment is linked, however, it will be visible in the Assessment widget of Homeroom from the Item Analysis options. Scores entered into Classroom are imported to Homeroom nightly.
Classroom assessment results are like any other assessment in Homeroom and can be viewed singly, as part of an assessment set or in any data extract.
To view the question by question, or standard by standard, results in Homeroom, first log in to Homeroom. Then go to the Assessments widget. Select your student group, and the assessment you are interested in viewing.
If the assessment has item analysis, you will see two options: Item Analysis by Assessment and Item Analysis by Learning Target.
Select either option to view the assessment detail. Here is an example of the Item Analysis by Assessment.
Mouse over the information icon to see detail on the question or standard. The Students column provides information on how many students met the standard or answered the question correctly. The Type column indicates what type of question it was, for example SA for scored answer. The students are listed in columns alphabetically from left to right. Select the single assessment tab to return to the Item Analysis options. Here is an example of Item Analysis by Learning Target.
You can download the information to a workbook with multiple worksheets using the Download this Widget's Data tool from the assessment widget's toolbar.
The Grading Tab
There are four methods for grading students, individually by student, as a class by term, as a class by standard, or on non-academic measures. From within a Gradebook, select the Grading tab and then select any of the four options.
You can grade using a variety of grade literals, including symbols, depending on what your district has configured. For example:
There are also various methods for filtering and automating grades. These are available from the Actions button. Use the Filter Students option to search for a single student by name. If you want all students to have the same grade, or a starting grade, select Apply Grade to Ungraded Students or Apply Grade to All Students.
You can also add / remove notes or comments to a student's grade by selecting Append Comment to All Students / Remove Comments from All Students and display or hide those comments with Toggle Comments, whose image is a callout.
The communication of grades to students and guardians can happen through various reports, the most common being the report card and progress report, which is available for single or multiple students. There is also a Download Grade Distribution Report that your district can configure.
Grading by Students
If you prefer to grade your students individually, select the Students option from the Grading tab. You are presented with a list of students attached to the gradebook. If you select the icons to the right of any student name you are effectively opening up one of the other grading choices for the entire class.
However, to grade a single student, you can filter by name using the Filter Students button or you can drill into any student by selecting their name.
When viewing a single student, you can select any of the grading cells, and delve into a term and week view of how many times the student met or did not meet standards contained in the gradebook. From there you can assign a grade.
You can also step through the gradebook's terms, select individual standards, and expand or collapse the categories. Select the Show Limited option to see only the standards.
Grading by Class Terms - Assignments
If you are assigning grades based on overall assignment scores, the easiest way to grade your students is by selecting the Class Term Grades options from the Grading tab of your gradebook. You can select the appropriate term and see the results of all the assignments for all the students attached to the gradebook. Each student's assignment score is colored according to the settings on the assignment, giving you a visual indicator of the student's performance on the assignment.
You can assign a grade to a particular student, or again, use the Actions button to filter students, apply a single grade to all students or add comments. Details include:
- Filter Students - select certain students to show in the list, to grade or apply other actions to
- Apply Grade to Ungraded Students - applies a single grade to all students, currently in the list, who do not currently have one
- Apply Grade to All Students - applies a single grade to all students, currently in the list, even if they currently have one
- Append Comment to All Students - applies the same comment to all students, currently in the list. This will add the comment to any existing comment.
- Remove Comments from All Students - removes all comments from all students, currently in the list,
- Accept All Suggestions - This will make all suggested grades the actual grades for the students,currently in the list. Please note, this will update the grade for all students, even if you have manually entered a different grade for that student.
- Download Grade Distribution Report - this is configurable by district. If you don't see this report, or it won't download, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
- Toggle Comments - turns on an icon to the right of the grade that allows you to enter or see the comments previously entered.
Grading by Class Terms - Assignment Categories
If you are assigning grades based on overall assignment scores, and have set up and assigned Assignment Categories, as well as Suggestion Ranges, you'll see the results of the categories for all the students attached to the gradebook. Each category header is color coded based on the category set up. The category column displays the students ratio and percent for the category.
To the right of the term grading box is the 'suggested' grade based on the Suggestion Ranges. To accept the suggestions for a single student, click on the suggested grade and it will transfer to the term grading box. To accept the suggestions for all students click the actions button and choose Accept All Suggestions. Please note, this will update the grade for all students, even if you have manually entered a different grade for that student. Once a suggested grade has been accepted, the suggestion will no longer display on the right. However, if the grade is changed, and is no longer the same as the suggested, the suggested grade will once again display to the right of the term grading box.
The Actions button has the same options as Grading by Class Term Grades - Assignments.
To see individual assignment scores click the category title. Each student's assignment score is colored according to the settings on the assignment, giving you a visual indicator of the student's performance on the assignment. The actions button will allow you to see the assignments newest to oldest or vice versa.
Grading by Standards
If you are grading purely by standards used across all assignments in the gradebook, from the Grading tab, select Standards Grades. You are presented with a list of the students attached to the gradebook and the weeks in the term selected. For each week, you are given the number of times the student met the standard out of the number of times the student encountered the standard; for example, 2 out of 3, 2/3. Each student's weekly score is colored, giving you a visual indicator of the student's performance for the week.You can then assign a grade to that standard for each student.
Move through each standard by selecting it from the list of those available in the gradebook.
Again, use the Actions button to filter students, apply a single grade to all students or add comments to a grade given.
Grading Non-Academic Measures
If your district requires you to grade on non-academic measures as well as coursework, things like citizenship, respect, or even attendance, select the Non-Academic Measures option from the Grading tab of the gradebook. You can give a student a grade on a single Date, or more commonly, by Term. Select each Measure from the list of those you imported to the gradebook. Use the Actions button to apply a grade to all students, filter students, or add comments.
Once you have completed grading your students for the term, you may need to print out report cards. (Please Note: There are options available to your Classroom Data Administrator to print out groups of report cards en masse.)
There are two ways to print or save a report card as a PDF file, from the Grading tab of the Gradebook or the Students menu from the Classroom directory tree. The difference is in the translations. If your district has set up your report cards to print in language(s) other than English, the Grading tab Download options allows you to choose which language to print the report in. Printing from the Students Report Card tab only prints the report card in the students native language.
You can Filter Students by name, choose the check box to the right of Student Name to choose all the students in the list, or click individual students. When students are selected, click the download button and your pdf will begin generating.
If your district has configured report cards to generate for different languages, the Download button will have options to choose the language to print the report card in.
Students Report Card tab
Select the gradebook you use to report on from the list of those available. Alternatively, you can select individual students or all students assigned to you to print report cards en masse.
If selecting a single gradebook, you can then choose to print out all report cards or a single student.
Once you have selected the appropriate students, chose the Report Card option.
The following message will appear:
Go to your email inbox and look for an email from School Data Solutions. It may end up in your Junk or Spam folder. The message contains a link to download the report cards as PDF files.
If you want a report card for a single student, from the Classroom directory tree, select Students, then filter for the student by name or select their name from the list. On the Report Card tab, you can turn on or off several options by selecting the button to the left of the option. For instance, you can hide the display of Class Term Grades, but show the student's Non-Academic Measures.
Then select View Report Card.
From here you can print the report card or save it as a PDF file.
The progress report can be configured per district, but most consists of a pdf of all the students, assignments, assignment description and their grades to date.
You can Filter Students by name, choose the check box to the right of Student Name to choose all the students in the list, or click individual students. When students are selected, click the download button and your pdf will begin generating.
You can choose the semester the progress report is being printed in. The progress report only prints current progress, it does not print historical progress.
A generic message can be added to the bottom of the report card by typing the message into the Report Message box.
