The “New Grading Period” command can be used to begin a new grading period with an existing class. You may carry forward student names, grade totals, grade averages, or start completely anew.
Choose “New Grading Period…” from the File Menu and click the appropriate check boxes
If you are beginning a new grading period with the same students, you have the option of carrying point totals forward or averaging two grading periods together on an equal basis.
Checking the “Grade Totals” box totals all the points from the previous period into the first column of each category. It also saves a the lowest score so that if you are using the “Drop Low Score” option, the lowest score from either period is dropped.
