After enabling grading periods in your Accelerate Education course, you will need to associate your course modules (folders) to the applicable grading period in Buzz. For more information about enabling grading periods, review Enabling grading periods in Buzz.

Once you have enabled the grading periods in a Semester A course, all modules and their associated activities will be assigned to Q1 by default. In a Semester B course, all modules and their associated activities will be assigned to Q3 by default. Always take the time to confirm the correct grading periods for your modules.

~ Semester A courses: Associate modules to the Q2 grading period that have gradable activities with due dates between October 26, 2022 and January 9, 2023.

~ Semester B courses: Associate modules to the Q4 grading period that have gradable activities with due dates between March 14, 2023 and May 19, 2023.

The quarter dates for the 2022/2023 school year are as follows:

~ 1st Quarter: 08/22/2022 to 10/25/2022

~ 2nd Quarter: 10/26/2022 to 01/09/2023

~ 3rd Quarter: 01/10/2023 to 03/13/2023

~ 4th Quarter: 03/14/2023 to 05/19/2023

Review the modules in your course and determine where to divide the 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, follow the steps in the resource, Splitting a course module into two grading periods in Buzz.

  1. In an 18-module course, Q2 or Q4 may begin with Module 10.

  2. In a 6-module course, Q2 or Q4 may begin with Module 4.

From your Accelerate Education course card, click Editor.
