Choose Your Standards
By default, Otus makes all state and common core standards available to teachers. To begin your setup, you'll want to choose the set of standards you'll be using.

Choose District Grading Scale
Now that you have your standards set, you can choose one of Otus' predefined scales, or you can define your own.
Choosing your Mastery Settings
Once you've created a grading scale, you'll want to decide how you're going to calculate your standards grades, as students will most likely be graded on the same standards multiple times. There are 5 different mastery settings you can choose from, and by default, teachers in all grade levels can choose all 5 of them when viewing standards grades:
- Decaying Average
- Most Recent

If some of your teachers will be creating assessments with traditional points and not grading on a term-based scale, you'll want to set up term conversion to convert student scores on items and questions into a scale score for the connected standard.
