Remove Grading Periods

Erroneous grading periods (GPs) are added when classes are created within the wrong grading period and/or school year. All school GPs can be found in the drop-down menu at the top left of the administrative dashboard.

To remove a GP, you must first move the classes and students to the correct GPs.

 

Move Classes to Appropriate Grading Period

  1. Click Classes in the left sidebar.

  2. Locate classes listed in the incorrect GP. Please note: Classes may be under the Archived Classes or Trashed Classes tab.

  3. Hover over the gear icon to the right of the class name, and select Settings from the drop-down menu.

  4. On the Basic Class Settings page, change the grading period to the appropriate GP for your school. Click the Submit button to save your changes.

  5. Repeat steps #1-4 for all classes listed in the incorrect GP.

 

Update Student Roster

  1. Click Students in the left sidebar.

  2. Hover over the grading period drop-down menu at the top left, and select the erroneous grading period (if it is not already selected) from the drop-down menu.

  3. Hover over the Options button, and select Update Stats from the drop-down menu. This will refresh your Engrade student roster.

  4. Refresh your browser window. The students will no longer appear to be enrolled in any classes in the selected grading period.

 

Delete Grading Period

Once you have confirmed that all classes—including classes in the Archived and Trashed folders—have been removed and there are no students enrolled in classes in the erroneous grading period, you can remove the grading period.

  1. Click Students in the left sidebar.

  2. Hover over the grading period drop-down menu at the top left, and select the erroneous grading period (if it is not already selected) from the drop-down menu.

  3. Hover over the Options button, and select Clear Old Students from the drop-down menu. This will remove all students without any classes from the selected grading period.

  4. Refresh your browser window. Once all classes and students are removed from the grading period, the grading period will be removed from the account.
