To adjust the visibility of certain grade scales, click on the section below Visible To.You can select the X to remove certain grade levels. If you click the box a second time, a drop-down menu will appear that will allow you to select or deselect various grade levels. If you remove Points from both Assessment Creation and Standards Gradebook, the points gradebook will be hidden from applicable teachers' view.

**If a teacher is unable to see a grading scale in their account, make sure to remind them to set a grade for the class they are teaching within the Class Info section of their class. They can set the grade level for a class by selecting Class Info from the Classes module. This can also be done from admin account. Here is a link on how to view information on a class.
Choose District Standards
Super Admin users have the ability to limit the standard sets that appear in accounts connected to the district. When a standard is linked to an assessment question, a lesson, a bookshelf resource, or views standards connected to Inspect Items, only the pre-selected standards will display when choosing the standards, and when viewing the standard gradebook.
To select your district standards, select the Control Center located on the left-hand tool bar.
From here, click the standards settings tab located in the center of the page. Choose standards that you would like to be visible by checking or unchecking the appropriate boxes. To select a certain set of state standards, make sure that the state standard box is marked and the desired state is chosen from the drop down menu.
