The Grades report shows the student’s achievements and grade trends against the course average. Helping understand the underlying direction of attainment can give teachers valuable insight into how assessments are working across the courses.

Grades Overview

The Grades overview shows individual student grade trends against the course average.


Note some customers use the grade book setting 'Show course average for each assignment, test, etc." to hide the overall grade average. The 360 Reports take this into account will also hide the grade average.

Top Section

The top section gives a course overview.

  • Students: number of all students in a course.
  • Assessments: number of assessable elements in selected term, which means those that have an assessment scale or score set-up.
  • Grade scales: number of scales used in assessable elements in the selected term.

The summary grade trend shows the course average trend for the selected assessment scale and term. Only elements added to grade book are shown. We show both mandatory and non-migratory items. We include manual assessments. You can change the term and assessment scale in the drop down lists. Changing the assessment scale/term selectors will recalculate the overall course grade trend.

Rules for showing grades in the trend graph:

  • Must be dded to the grade book - only elements added to grade book are shown.
  • Mandatory & Non-mandatory are both included.
  • Match both the "Assessment Scale" and "Term" filters below.

The overall grade average is calculated by taking average grade from student averages.

 This lists those students who are active in the course. It does not list students who have left the course. If you have course groups set-up you can choose to filter the view to only show members of these.
