Eliminate Grading Scale Letter Popup Box in Gradebook

Seguir

Our district is using Schoology this year as our online gradebook program. One issue that has been irritating to our teachers is entering grades using our district defined grading scale. We want our teachers to use our scale when they enter grades because it shows the point value for a student along with the grading scale letter it matches. For example, if a student scores a 22 out of a 25 point assignment, the gradebook shoes 22 and the letter B.

The problem is that as our teachers are entering grades, there is a pop up box that appears with A B C D F each time a teacher clicks on a cell to enter a grade. It makes navigating around the gradebook difficult and sometimes they accidentally enter the letter instead of the point value.

Please consider eliminating the pop up box from a defined grading scale.

If our teachers us the numeric scale, they avoid the pop up box, but then parents do not get to see the corresponding letter grade with the point value. In my example from above, they would only see 22. To find out how that translates, they would have to calculate 22/25 and then find our grading scale somewhere that shows that an 88 is equivalent to a B. That is very cumbersome for our parents.

    Hi everyone,

    Thank you so much for your continuous feedback. Based on your feedback, we are happy to announce our Engineering team has released a new feature that will allow users to "turn off" the grade scale popup in a course. You can now opt out of seeing this popup by going to the Gradebook for your course, clicking the "View" dropdown menu, and unchecking "View Grading Scale." Here is also a clip of the new feature in action: 

    We hope this helps alleviate the painpoints you experienced with our Gradebook. We appreciate the time and energy you've given to our Community and are optimistic this new feature will help improve your workflow. Thank you for using Schoology!

     

    Best,

    I get requests from ALL our teachers asking if there's any way to turn this off. It gets in their way, often preventing them from moving to the next cell unless they click somewhere outside the gradebook.

    I agree that this is difficult.  Can it be turned off for individual teachers?

    It is very concerning that this request is more than a year old, and still a very current problem for teachers.  Please remove/disable this feature!

    I am supporting teachers in our district.  I have some that have the gradebook popup issue.  They would like to turn it off.  This happens on Mac or PC.  IE and Chrome.  In all of the courses for these teachers.  Other teachers using the same computers do not have the popups.  There must be a setting, but we cannot find it.  Please help.
