Grade Scales for Individual Students

School Loop supports individual grading scales for students with learning disabilities or other special cases. As a teacher, you can create as many grading scales as you want. You can create additional grading scales and apply them to gradebooks, or to individual students on the Student Scoresheet.

You also have the option to individually change the Max Values of assignments for each student. Simply enter your gradebook and click a student. In the Max Points column, click the Edit link. Any changes you make apply only to that student.


1. Click that student's name in your gradebook spreadsheet to bring up their Student Scoresheet.

2. Click the Change button, as pictured below.


3. Choose the grade scale you wish to use with this student.

4. Use the orange Progress Report Publishing button to publish.
