This is a long one:
I have talked with Schoology support about a Marking Period override for a FINAL marking period average. It does not exist, I want to post this to the Schoology community to see if there are others that have this problem to see if it can be become a feature:
Problem: Our school has a policy that a student can NOT receive a marking period average of below 50 for the 1st two marking periods (out of 4) in a school year. The reason is so they do not get discouraged and realize that there is no way to mathematically pass the class half way through it. Philosophies on this aside, schoology then becomes misleading and messes up the teachers gradebook for the year and then the schoology gradebook will not give the correct average for marking periods 2, 3 and 4.
In other words: If a kids earns a 33 for marking period 1, we need to be able to override that and give them a 50 as that is what will show up on their report card. If any of this makes sense and there are others with this problem can you please post in the Schoology Community, hopefully I will get enough support to have this added.
