Drop Student from Grading Period

If a student leaves your school, you have two options:

  1. Drop the student from all grading periods at the school.
  2. Drop the student from specific grading period.

We recommend that you keep the student in your school account, but you may not want to have the student's name appear on your school roster or as a contact in Engrade Messages.

 

Back Up Student Data

Prior to dropping a student from your account, you should export backups of the student's grade data for your records. Please note: Dropping a student from your account is a permanent and irreversible process. Ensure that you have exported all data that you need prior to removing a student. To backup student data:

  1. Select Students in the left sidebar.

  2. Hover over the grading period drop-down menu at the top left, and select the appropriate grading period from the drop-down menu.

  3. Click on the name of the student for whom you would like to export backups.

  4. On the student's Classes tab, click on the name of a class from the list.

  5. In the selected class, click Gradebook in the left sidebar.

  6. Hover over the Print button and select Export Gradebook from the drop-down menu to initiate the download of a CSV file containing the student's grade data in the selected class.

  7. Repeat steps #1-6 for all classes in which the student is enrolled. You should be sure to do this for all grading periods from which you intend to drop the student.

 

Drop a Student from Selected Grading Periods

You can permanently remove a student from a selected grading period in your Engrade account by choosing to drop the student from the grading period.

  1. Select Students in the left sidebar.

  2. Hover over the grading period drop-down menu at the top left, and select the grading period from which you would like to remove a student.

  3. Hover over the gear icon to the right of the student's name, and select Drop in the drop-down menu.

  4. In the pop-up window, select the radio button to the left of Drop this student from classes in this grading period only.

  5. Click the Drop Student button to permanently remove the selected student and all of his/her associated data from the selected grading period in your Engrade account.
