Filling Report Card Fields
Edsby provides a powerful report card fill feature. The Field picker enables teachers to select any data-fillable field on the report card sheet, including drop-downs such as Learning Skills, and quickly fill it with the required information. Fill can target selected students and also supports replacing cell contents.
Teachers can choose to fill the comment fields of students with blank cells, all students, or cells for selected students.
In this example, James Harris has selected a comment from the comment library for one of his students and would like to use the same comment for all Level 4 students in the class. With the cursor in the comment box, Click Fill.
To use a part of a comment, highlight the comment that will be used. Click Fill.
The Field drop-down will automatically be set to comment and the comment will be translated into standard Edsby comment mechanisms.
To use a different comment or add more comments from the comment library, click on the comment library search bar. The comment library will drop down with options to filter comments by grade, subject, course code, tags, and more. Select the desired comment and click the X to close the comment library.
Choose the students to apply the existing comment by either selecting them individually from the list or selecting Level 4, and clicking Fill & Close. To continue filling report card fields, just click Fill. The comment will be added to all of the Level 4 students on the report card sheet.
Teachers can follow this same procedure to fill All Cells or Blank Cells with an existing comment from the report card by highlighting the desired comment and selecting the appropriate option in the Fill window.
Teachers can choose to fill the Grade fields of blank cells, all cells, or cells for selected students.
In this example, James Harris would like to assign a grade of 85 to multiple students in his class. He will fill the grade field of one of his students with 85, highlight the grade and click Fill.
The Field drop-down will automatically be set to Grade.
Select the students for which to apply the same grade and click Fill & Close. Selecting Fill enables teachers to continue filling report card fields. The grades will be added to the report card sheet.
Teachers can choose to apply the same grade to any blank grade cells in the report card by choosing Select Blanks. If desired, teachers can also choose to apply the same grade to all students in the class by choosing Select All.
