The Parent/Student Side of Standards on Infinite Campus

With the move towards standards-based grading on Infinite Campus under way this fall, one of the big questions is how it looks for the parents & students on their portal. You can see what the portal view looks like for a particular student by navigating into the student's profile on the "Campus Tools" side of IC and then clicking on the grade tab. When you find your class in their grades, there is a gradebook icon that looks like this:

Once that is selected, there is a button at the top to view as the portal user:

That will show you exactly what the student/parent will see on the portal for your particular class. But, without needing to go through all of the clicks, these two screenshots give you a general idea of how it is displayed to the student/parent depending on which screen they are on.




I hope that helps clear up some of the mystery of the standards-based side of Infinite Campus. I don't think it is nearly as confusing as we all expected it to be. That being said, the curriculum office is working on reworking the wording of the standard to make them more concise and easier to understand on the parent/student portal. As you can see in the example screenshots, some of the truncation that is happening due to the character limit leaves you with very little information about what that standard actually is. So expect that aspect to become clearer as curriculum refines them.

Hide Dropped Students in Infinite Campus

I had a teacher ask me if there was a way to hide or remove students who are no longer in your class. The answer is maybe. It depends on if they are officially dropped from your class and appearing as red in your roster and gradebook. If not, then no, you cannot remove them until they have been unenrolled from the class. If the student is showing up as red in your gradebook though, you can hide them so you don't have to worry about them. Here is a screenshot to help you do it:

Keynote Interactivity (and my 200th post)

When I talked with teachers about Nearpod last week, there was a teacher at the highschool who really wants to keep his animations within Keynote while having the interactivity like Nearpod . I told him that I'd look into it to see what was possible. Short story: I'm not having any luck at all.

Build with Chrome (Lego Building Time!)

If you are like me, you spent countless hours when you were young building with legos . If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
