Step One: Select the course from the "Courses" drop-down list to begin editing scores for a specific class.
Fun Fact: Student names and assignment scores will appear in a grid view with student names down the left and assignments and scores along the top to see the most amount of information at one time.
A few helpful tips
Set the assignment display order preference (sort by date or assignment category) by navigating to File > Preferences.
Click the student name link for an overview of the student's progress for the course (this is the same view seen in the student and family portals).
Click the icon(s) next to a student's name to view important demographic and health information.
Step Two: Click a score field on a student row in an assignment column to select a student score to edit.
Step Three: Enter a numeric value with up to two decimal places or enter one of the following special score codes to score an assignment.
Exempt: an "X" exempts a student from the assignment.
Pending: a "P" for the score means the assignment is pending and should not count against the student's grade calculation.
Late Included: an "LI" score includes the late assignment as a zero in the student's class percentage.
Late Exempt: an "LX" score will not count the late assignment against the student's percentage.
Missing Included: an "MI" score includes the missing assignment as a zero in the student's class percentage.
Missing Exempt: an “M” score will not count the missing assignment against the student's percentage.
Handed In Exempt: an “HI” score will not count the assignment in the student's percentage but notes that the student did hand in the assignment.
Fun fact: If the numeric value exceeds the maximum points possible, a pop-up will inform you that "You entered the score greater than the maximum score." Click the "OK" button and either adjust the score to fit the maximum or stick with the score and the extra points will count as extra credit.
Step Four: Click the "Publish" button to make scores and current grade percentages for the entire class viewable in jmc Student and jmc Family.
Helpful Tip: Click any of the Quick Links on the right side of the page to use the following options when scoring assignments:
Show One Student/Show All Students: Toggle the scores view to show the entire class's scores and names or just show the selected student score and name. When showing one student at a time, use the "Student" drop-down list to change which student you are viewing.
Show One Assignment/Show All Assignments: Toggle the scores view to show all assignments for the course or show one assignment at a time. When showing one assignment at a time, use the "Assignments" drop-down list to change the assignment you are viewing.
Edit Score Note: Add a note to the selected score. An asterisk will appear next to scores with notes in jmc Teacher and will be viewable in jmc Student and jmc Family. Apply the note to the selected student or to all students by clicking the corresponding "This Student" or "All Students" button.
Fill Score Column: Fill the entire column of scores with the value in the selected score. This is a huge timesaver if most or all students have the same score!
