Getting Started

Open your Gradebook module from the navigation on the left-hand side.

Then choose the Assessments view or the Standards view from the two tabs at the top.

Based on your district’s settings, you may see the standards tab on the left and the assessments tab on the right.

Assessments View

The assessments view displays all assessments that have been assigned to your classes. Each assessment will have its own column in your gradebook.

  • If your district uses points, the student's total class grade or percentage is included in the third column.

  • Each assessment's column includes the score (if your district uses points), student's submission status, and any comments you have added.

  • You can also add a grade for any work that was not completed directly in Otus by using the + (Plus) Assessment feature.

  • The assessments view allows specific categories (test, journal, homework, etc.) to be weighted for any points-based assessments.

Standards View

The standards view displays and calculates the student's performance based on standards. Each column represents a standard that has been assessed.

  • The performance level is calculated using the selected Mastery Setting found in the upper-right corner. The example below uses Mean.

  • The number to the right of the performance level represents the student's number of attempts at mastery for that particular standard.

  • You can click on any cell to see a detailed history of the student's performance on that standard.

💡Tip: 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 which could be represented as a letter grade, a performance level, or any other term your district has decided to use.
