Our SIS (PowerSchool) allows each of our schools to choose which grading periods are shown in the student, parent and advisor grade displays. We need to have that same control in the grade setup area of a course in Schoology.
In other words, rather than turning off visibility of ALL grading periods grades, there would be separate check boxes for the individual grading periods in the Course --> Grade Setup --> Visibility --> Hide grading period grades in student grade report option.
We average our quarter grades differently (using GPA/quality points) than the gradebook does (using percentage). So being able to hide the Semester grades is key.
