Mark Usage Report Page

This report allows you to analyze how marks are being used in your building. The report is sorted by staff name by default so you can analyze usage by teacher. The last page of the report includes mark usage information for the building.

For a selected mark type, you can specify the marks to include. You can choose up to 10 marks or create up to 10 groups of marks. Mark groups allow schools that use a numeric grading scale to include more grades in the report by grouping them together. For example, if you want to see how many students received marks 100 - 90, 89 - 80, 79 - 70, 69 - 60, 59 - 50, 50 - 0, you could create 6 groups. For each mark or mark group, the report prints either the number of times the mark was issued or the percentage that the mark usage represents.

In addition, the report includes the numeric average that students earned for a course. The average is calculated as the sum of the point values for marks divided by the number of marks issued. The report uses the point value for the marks from the level table specified in the Master Schedule Course Level field.
