When it's time to report grades, office professionals work in tandem with teachers to get grades into the hands of their families in a timely fashion. Office professionals begin the process by opening the grade acceptance period in jmc Office to invite teachers to submit their grades. Then as teachers submit grades, jmc automatically puts them into report cards eliminating the chore of manually compiling grades.
To set grade acceptance settings or to review which teachers have submitted grades, head to Grading > Entry > Grade Acceptance
Step One: Click the "Settings" tab to customize the acceptance timeframe and term type for accepting grades into jmc Office.
Step Two: Select the "Grade Acceptance On", "Grade Acceptance Off" or "Grade Acceptance On Between" radio button from the grade acceptance box to establish the grade acceptance period.
Helpful Tip: Select the "Grade Acceptance On Between" option and enter a date in the "From" and "To" fields to set a grading window that allows teachers to submit grades.
Step Three: Place a checkmark in the appropriate checkbox(es) to indicate the type of grades you are accepting.
Midterm Grades: grades from the jmc Teacher Midterm Grades page
Course Grades: grades from the jmc Teacher Course Grades page
Standards and Benchmarks: assessments entered by the teacher on the Edit Assessment pages in jmc Teacher
Step Four: Place a checkmark in the "Terms to accept grades from" checkbox(es) to accept grades associated with the appropriate term.
Step Five: Click the "Save" button to save your grade acceptance settings.
Fun Fact: When you turn on grade acceptance, teachers will receive an alert in jmc Teacher reminding them to submit grades.
Helpful Tip: Prevent teachers from making unwanted updates to report cards by selecting the "Grade Acceptance Off" radio button after the term has been completed.
