What happens if.... the dilemma of missing assignments when posting grades.

The time has come, the walrus said, to talk of many things. In my case, this walrus is talking about posting grades on Infinite Campus pretty much nonstop as of late. The "What happens if..." questions are likely the most frequent beyond the simple "how do I post" question (and I'll have more on that one later this week 💭).

Today's big question was what happens when you are posting grades and the student's most recent assignment under and indicator is marked as missing. In the end, there are two scenarios at play and the graphic below gives you a visual of what happens.

In the end, the standard will not appear on the report card if the posted score is blank AND there is no comment. So, if you want the standard to appear on the report card and indicate that the blank score was because of missing work, you need to post a comment in the "Rpt Crd Comments" column for the standard to appear on the report card.

Keep in mind that this only effects those standards that are using the "Proficiency Estimate (Rubrics)" and "Most Recent" for the method option under "Grade Calc Options".

Baffled? Feel free to make an appointment with me and we can talk about it together to make sure you understand it all. 😀

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:
