To access your gradebook, select Gradebook in the navigation on the left.

You can choose to view your Points Gradebook or your Standards Gradebook in the top right corner.

Note - not all districts choose to have the Points Gradebook available.


Points Gradebook

Select Class and View Data

  • Select the class you'd like to view from the dropdown.
  • The third column represents the student's total percentage, and each subsequent column represents an assessment. Each assessment will have a score, status, and optional comment. At the bottom of each column, the class average is displayed.

Menu Options

  • Grading Period: Select which grading period you'd like to view, and all assessments due in that period will be visible. Grading periods can be set by the Main Admin in the Control Center.
  • Weighting: Choose the percentage weight for each assignment category.
  • Download CSV: Download your gradebook in CSV format so that it can be printed if needed.

Add Grades

  • By selecting the + icon at the top left corner, you can add a column to your gradebook, which allows you to add points from work that was done outside of Otus.
  • Mass Grade: Select the boxes next to each student's name that you want to give the same score to. Add the score to the first student checked, then select Enter or Return on your keyboard. The remaining checked students will autofill. Statuses can also be mass added.

Standards Gradebook

Select Class and View Data

  • Select the class you'd like to view from the dropdown.
  • Each column represents a standard. You will find each student's performance level for that standard based on the grading scale chose. At the bottom of each column will be the class performance breakdown for that standard.

💡 Tip from the Otus Team: If there is an additional column in-between the student's last name and the first standard, that means your district has Total Grade Conversion enabled. This takes the performance mean for all attempts and converts it to a total class grade (could be a letter grade, a performance level, or any other term your district has decided to use).

Filters

  • Standards: Choose Filter Standards to select which specific standard(s) you wish to view.
  • Assessments: You can also filter to the specific assessment(s) you wish to view.
  • Mastery Setting: Choose how you wish mastery to be measured.
    Note: It is important to set the grade level for each class (under your Class Info tab) so the mastery settings can be assigned correctly.
  • Grading Scale: Choose which grading scale you'd like to look at, for example (Mastery, Near Master, Approaching Mastery), (3,2,1), etc.
    Note: These are determined by district settings and require that a grade level is set in your Class Info.
  • Grading Period: Select the grading period for which you'd like to view assessments, and only assessments due in that period will be visible. District administrators set the dates for grading periods in the Control Center.
  • Download CSV: Download your gradebook in CSV for printing if needed.

View Performance History

  • Click on a student's "score" to open the student's performance for that specific standard. You can view a Performance History and a Summary Bar Chart. To go back to the class view, click the class name above the standard description.

Manage Groups

  • Select multiple students and then click the Flag icon to assign all selected students the same group.
