Changes [Jul 02, 2018]Adding an Assignment
Some teachers have noticed a rounding issue in Power School, I'll include a fix and an explanation here.
In Grade Book :
Tools > Preferences
under Grading tab
Middle of screen Store calculated grades with up to ___ decimal places
should be set to Zero
Then under Tools > Recalculate Final Scores
This should correct the problem, I would check all classes to make sure it works.
Thanks to Mr. Bemont for testing this fix
Some schools use Letter Grades ABCDF. There is a translation from a numeric grade to a letter grade using a grade scale. In Schools with numeric grades there is still a translation from a number to a "letter/text" grade. Instead of 5 slots (A,B,C,D,F) with predetermined cut points, our grade scale has 101 spots with 101 cut points 0,1,2,3,... 98,99,100. So the grade is niether truncated nor rounded, it is translated to a "letter" that shows up on the report card. Sounds crazy, I know but, it works as long as the numeric grade is always a whole number.
A Students report card grade will never show more than 100, but the grade book will keep a score over one hundred and use that score when calculating the final average.
Hope this helps clear up the issue.
