In order to adjust the numeric ranges for each term in the grading scale, you must be logged into the Main Admin account. 

  • Within the Main Admin account, select Control Center from the lefthand toolbar.

  • The Control Center provides additional options for Grading Scales, Admin Permissions, and Custom Standards. You are automatically taken to the Grading Scales page after entering the Control Center.  From here, you will see the grading scales that each grade level is able to view.

  • View the term conversion settings by selecting the ellipsis on the right of the grading scale row, as shown in the image below.

When viewing the Term Conversion for a specific grading scale, you will notice two different sections.
*Both sections must be completed in order to save the term conversion.*

The left section will take a numeric value that falls within the identified ranges and change it to each "term" on the scale. The term that each numeric value converts to depends on the Standards-Based Scale your district has enabled. For example, in the first visual below, any score between 90% and 100% will convert to an "A." In the second visual, any score between 80% and 100% will convert to "Exceeds." 

The right section will award the identified numeric value to the corresponding term when a non-numeric grading scale is used.

Examples of term conversions for two different grading scales are shown below. The first shows the term conversions for letter grades A, B, C, D, F.

This example shows term conversions for Exceeds, Meets, Approaching, and Not at Standard. 

After the conversions are applied, you can toggle between the different grading scale views in the Standards' Gradebook.
