Competency Entry Page - Grid Mode

To enter grades for all students in a competency group, use the Grid mode. The page displays the students in the group, the competencies assigned to the group, and the mark types associated with each competency. The marks entered on this page will be reported on students' report cards for the selected run/marking period.

This page supports both Student Competencies and Course Competencies. Refer to the appropriate task for your competencies.

Select a filter if you want to limit the list of students displayed for a student competency group.

  • To filter students, select the field you want to filter by and then select the value. The following filter options are available:

    Primary HR - to filter based on the primary homeroom number for the students.

    Secondary HR - to filter based on the secondary homeroom number for the students.

    Grade - to filter based on the grade for the students.

  • To clear a filter so all students are displayed, select the blank option at the top of the list of valid filters.

These two fields only displays when a student competency group is selected. They do not display if a course is selected.

Competency Group

Select the course competency group you want to enter marks for. This field lists the competency groups that are associated with the course selected in the toolbar.

This field only displays when a course is selected. It does not display if a competency group is selected.


Columns display for the competencies defined for the competency group. Each competency heading spans the mark and comment columns for the competency.

Depending on the number of competencies, some columns may display off screen to the right. If so, use the horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the page to scroll to the additional columns.

Competencies that serve as headings for the printed report card will display as a single column with no entry fields for marks or comments.


Enter the mark that the student has earned for the competency and mark type. The names and number of columns that display are determined by your building's setup.

To display a list of valid marks, click in the field. Each competency can be associated with a grading scale so a mark type may have a different list of valid marks for different competencies.

When you enter a mark, the Override flag is set to protect the mark from being overwritten if you use the Load from Gradebook option. This flag does not display on the page. Use the List mode to check for overrides; mark overrides display with a green background in List mode.

If No Record displays in a student's mark cell, then the student does not have a record for the selected marking period for this mark type. You cannot enter a mark for a student who does not have a record. A student may not have a record because they withdrew from your school or changed classes. If all students show No Record for a mark type, then the student competency records have not been created. Contact an administrator for assistance.


Enter the comment code related to the student's mark for the competency. The names and number of columns that display are determined by your building's setup.

Enter comments by typing the desired code or by entering a space to display the list of valid comments defined for this comment code.
