After enabling the two grading periods in your Accelerate Education semester course, review the modules (folders) in your course and determine where to divide the grading periods based on the eAcademy school calendar. As you are associating each of your course modules to the applicable grading periods, you may decide that some activities towards the end of a module belong in the Q2 or Q4 grading period.
If you have activities that fall into two grading periods, review the steps below to split a course module into two grading periods.
From your Accelerate Education course card, click Editor.
Determine which module will have some activities associated with the first grading period and some activities associated with the second grading period.
Below the final module in your course, click ADD ACTIVITY.
Enter the same title as the original module and add - Q2 (Sem. A) or - Q4 (Sem. B) to the end (i.e., Module 10: Pond Animals - Q2 or Module 10: Pond Animals - Q4). For clarity and consistency, you can add - Q1 (Sem. A) or - Q3 (Sem. B) to the end of the original module’s title.

Select Move up until the new module is located right below the original module.
Alternatively, the new module can be dragged up to the correct location. Select the module name to drag the module up. WARNING: Be careful not to embed the new folder into another module. Make sure the new module is located between two modules.
Open the original module to view the activities that need to be moved.
Drag activities from the original module to the new module. Be careful to keep activities in the correct sequence.
To the right of the new module, click Edit (pencil icon).
Click the SETTINGS tab.
In the Folder settings, change the new module’s Period to Q2 (Sem. A) or Q4 (Sem. B) and then click SAVE at the top right of the page.
To the right of the original module, click Edit. Then, click the SETTINGS tab and verify the original module has a Period of Q1 (Sem. A) or Q3 (Sem. B).
