Q. How do I enable and manage Standards-Based Grading for my domain?
A. Any Domain Administrator can enable Standards-Based Grading for their domain through the Applications area of the Domain Control. From this area, you can set your default Scale, and adjust default settings on a per-Organization basis.
Enabling Standards-Based Grading
- To turn on Standards Based Grading, just navigate to the Applications area of the Domain Control, then select the PowerSchool Learning Features tab.
- Scroll down to the Standards-Based Grading application, then check the box next to Settings to enable SBG for your domain.
Setting Permissions per Organization
Select the Settings option next to the Standards-Based Grading application to view and edit settings for Organizations and Sub-Organizations within your domain. Next to any Organization, click on the gear, then select Edit Settings.
From here, you can choose to set Standards-Based Grading as Default On, Default Off, or Blocked for that Organization.
You will be prompted upon hitting the Save button to verify whether you would like any sub-organizations of this organization to inherit these new settings. Yes or No, either way works!
