This article will provide a brief overview of the Gradebook module. For specific details regarding the points or standards gradebook, check out the links below:
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.
➡️ - Please note that not all districts choose to have the Points Gradebook available.
Any assessment given using the points grading scale will be located in the points gradebook.
The student's total class percentage is included in the third column.
Each assessment will have its own column that includes the score, status, and comments.
You can also add a grade for assessments that were not taken directly in Otus by using the + (Plus) Assessment feature.
The points gradebook can include grade weighting.

The standards gradebook stores and calculates the student's performance on standards.
➡️ Rather than each column representing an assessment (like the points gradebook), each column represents a standard in the standards gradebook.
The performance level is calculated using the selected Mastery Setting (found in the upper-right corner, the example below is Mean).
The number to the right of the performance indicator represents the number of attempts the student has had on that standard.
You can click on any cell to see a detailed history of the student's performance on 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).
