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 you have selected a course selected. It does not display if a competency group is selected.

Student List Section

This section displays a list of students for the selected class. To display the competencies for a student, click the student's row or use the student quick search tool at the top of the section. Use the arrow buttons to change the student selected.

A green checkmark displays if a mark or comment has been entered for the student for the competency group.

Competency List Section

This section displays the competencies defined for the competency group and the selected student's marks and comments. Additionally, the student's mark information for the prior marking period is displayed so you can see the mark you previously reported while grading the student for the current marking period.


Rows display for the competencies defined for the competency group.

Competencies that serve as headings for the printed report card will display, but no mark or comment cells will display.

Prior Marking Period Marks

Columns display the student's marks from the prior marking period. For example, if you are entering grades for M3 (marking period 3), then M2 Marks columns would display.

If you are entering marks for the first marking period of the year, no prior marking period columns display.

Current Marking Period Marks

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 two competencies.

When you enter a mark, the background of the cell changes to green to indicate that the override flag is set. If the Override flag is set, then the Load from Gradebook will not overwrite the mark you entered. This flag does not display on the page. If you want to remove an override so the Load from Gradebook can calculate the student's mark, refer to Removing Mark Overrides for Competencies.

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.
