Adding a Grade Scale

It is important for us to be creative with the way we grade our assessments. Good thing is that Classcard empowers you to create your very own brand new grading scales.

To add a grade scale, follow the steps below:

Click Gradebook on the left main menu.
Click on the Grade Scales tab.
Click the Add grade scale button.

Alternatively, while adding an assessment , on selecting the grade scale - the first option would be to create a new grade scale.

Grade scale examples:

Value (3rd row): Stagnant (Range Start: 0, Range End: 49)
d. Lowest Acceptable: Stagnant
e. Usage: Marking daily student progress
