Narratives are custom commentary teachers can enter about a student for a marking period, which can be added to the student's progress report in the report settings and shared on PlusPortals. Unlike the pre-populated list of comments, narratives enable teachers to write whatever commentary about the student they wish.
- Click General Settings, and then click Narratives.
Do any of the following:
- Select Allow teachers to share narratives to make the narratives public on PlusPortals.
- Select Allow teachers to enter marking period narratives. As the name implies, this option enables the Narrative feature in TeacherPlus.
- To impose a character limit on narratives, select the check box Limit Narrative Length, and enter a character limit value.
To impose a character limit on narratives, select the check box Limit Narrative Length, and enter a character limit value.
Because narratives can be added to progress reports, it's a good idea to impose a reasonable character limit to avoid lengthy commentary that may take up too much space.
