Gradient leaders can set up custom fields for use when filtering data in reports. Leaders must have district-wide access to create custom fields.
Examples of custom fields: Gender, Race, ELL, Ethnicity, Free/Reduced, etc. These fields will be populated when the rosters are imported either manually with a CSV file or by a Clever or ClassLink roster sync method.
Note: This option is not available for free or paid individual teacher accounts. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to upgrade to a school or district license.
If you are using Clever or ClassLink to share custom demographics the fields will be automatically created in Gradient. To add or adjust the custom fields available in Gradient, adjust what is shared using the Clever or ClassLink management.
Within Admin Mode, select the More tab from the Admin home page and then select Custom Fields from the list menu.
Enter a Name for the custom field. Select Save.
Select the custom field by checking the box in front of the specific custom field to be edited. Choose Edit from the toolbar.
Make changes to the custom field name and select Save.
Once a custom field is deleted, the association to any student will be removed.
Select the custom field by checking the box in front of the specific custom field to be deleted. Choose Delete from the toolbar.
Confirm deletion of the custom field by selecting Delete.
Note: A deleted custom field cannot be undeleted.
