Configure Score Settings

Using the TeacherPlus Gradebook score settings, you can set the gradebook response to scores that exceed possible points, customize the enter key function, customize the number of decimal places, and set Turbo Mode.

To configure these settings, do the following:

  1. On the side-navigation menu, click Settings, and then click the General Settings tab.
  2. In the Score Options group box, configure any of the following settings, and then click Save:

Score Settings

Score Options
A

Allow: Always allow scores above the possible points you set for the score column. You can use this setting to add extra credit points directly to an assignment score column.

Warn: After a warning, allow scores above the possible points you set for the score column. You can use this setting to add extra credit points directly to an assignment score column while making sure it's not in error.

Do Not Allow: Never allow scores above the possible points you set for a score column. This setting prevents you from adding extra credit points directly to an assignment score column.

B

Down: Move focus down a score column when you press Enter. Use this setting to add scores by assignment.

Right: Move focus to the right across a student's row when you press Enter. Use this setting to add scores by student.

C

0: Rounds scores to zero decimal places as you enter them. Existing scores with one or two decimal places are truncated when you change to this setting.

1: Rounds scores to one decimal place as you enter them. Existing scores with two decimal places are truncated when you change to this setting.

2: Rounds scores to two decimal places as you enter them.

D

Standard: Auto-save scores ON; Auto-calculate averages ON: Update averages as you enter scores. Standard mode can be slower, but it always shows accurate averages.

Turbo: Auto-save scores ON, Auto-calculate averages OFF: Don't update averages as you enter scores. Turbo mode is faster, but it doesn't accurately reflect changes in students' averages until you recalculate.

When grades are in the process of being saved, Saving appears at the upper-right corner of the gradebook. When the grades have been successfully saved, Saved appears. To update averages in Turbo Mode, click Save & Recalculate at the upper-right corner of your gradebook to ensure that all grades are saved and updated in the portals.
