Configure Comment Visibility

When you make comment columns visible to teachers, they can choose from a pre-populated list of comments to add to students' progress reports in TeacherPlus, such as "Outstanding Student" or "Poor Effort." The columns and comments are imported from AdminPlus and must be configured there.

Make Comments Visible to Teachers in the TeacherPlus Management Site

  1. Click General Settings, and then click Comments.
  2. Select the check box for each marking period comment column you want to make visible to teachers.

    Comment Visibility

    Because each comment column is specific to a marking period, the comments a teacher enters while in a marking period is confined to that marking period alone.
