Primary and Secondary Displays
Grades can have a Primary Display and a Secondary Display. The Primary Display is shown to students. The Secondary Display is viewed only in the Grade Center.
Grades can be displayed in these formats:
- Score: Shows a numeric score, such as "78." This format is commonly used as a Secondary Display. It is not often revealed to students unless they understand the total score possible and can compare their scores to the total.
- Text: Shows text, such as Pass or Fail, or a range of text messages such as "Excellent," "Very Good," "Good," "Fair," and "Poor."
- Percentage: Shows a percentage such as "90%".
- Letter: Shows a letter grade, such as "A," "A-," "B+," and so on.
- Complete/Incomplete: Shows a check mark for complete. Note: if something is incomplete nothing will be entered for that student. There is no icon to represent an incomplete item.
