PowerSchool has recently added the ability to create custom grading categories within the PowerSchool gradebook. Schoology is currently working with PowerSchool on how to incorporate this additional functionality into the integration between the two platforms. In the meantime, teachers can sync as they did last year to default categories. When custom category mappings become available and are applied, the gradebook sync will automatically update all items to new categories if they have changed.
We are giving our Gradebook a new look and feel, and adding some new features to make it easier to manage and navigate. The new features include:
- Tiered grading periods
- More options to sort grade columns
- Missing, Incomplete and Except labels
- A new View menu to help you view materials by labels and submissions
- A shortcut to view individual submissions right from the Gradebook
