Terms are important for how classes will appear in the teacher’s GradeCam account.
Setting the term start and end dates for the classes associated with those dates will allow for those classes, students, and their associated scan data to be active and display in Current Terms – which is the default view.
Terms with expired end dates remove the “clutter” of old rosters from last year but still have access to past data. If the term date is outside of the “active” date range for the current school year, those classes, students, and their associated scan data won’t display under Current Terms. That data can still be accessed by changing the filters to All Terms.
It is recommended that you reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about terms in the account.
Note: This option is not available on free or paid single-teacher accounts. Please contact email@example.com to upgrade to a school or district license.
Use these steps if terms already exist to add or edit Term name, ID or dates. Dates can be edited to expire old terms.
Note: If a nightly sync is set up and the terms are syncing with the term dates, no editing should be done as this will cause an unsuccessful sync and could duplicate all classes in the account.
1.1 Within Admin Mode, select the "More" tab from the Admin home page and then select "Terms" from the list menu.
1.2 Check the box in front of the term to be edited.
1.3 Select the "Edit" button from the toolbar.
1.4 The Name and Unique ID can be edited if there is not a nightly sync set up.
1.5 Select the Start and End Dates by selecting the field and then choosing from the calendar.
1.6 Once all editing is complete, select "Save".
