Daily Score Details
With the release of version 6.5, teachers can easily review and modify daily scores and communicate student performance to stakeholders. When the Daily Score measure has been enabled for a marking period, users can launch the new Daily Score Detail page directly from the Gradebook. This page presents all daily scores for the corresponding student and marking period, and includes the score, possible points, attendance status, attendance reason, and attendance comment associated with the date, if applicable. Scores can be updated directly from this view, and results can be printed or exported to Excel. Student daily scores can now also be included in Student Achievement reports. The new Daily Score widget, available from the report builder, allows teachers to select the fields and score types to include in the report, as well as the format of the output.
Student Health Screening Reports
Version 6.5 allows health administrators and nurses to quickly review results for all administered screenings from a single report. A new collection of Student Health Screenings reports, available from the administrative reports within the Health module, include outputs for dental, hearing, vision, scoliosis, TB, TB risk assessment, and physicals. Each report can be filtered by school, grade, date range, and screening status. Results include student ID, name, gender, date of birth, age, grade level, guardian, household phone, household address, and the specific components related to the selected screening type. These reports can be exported to Excel for further filtering and analysis.
GURU Locker Import Tool
Administrators can now easily import locker information in a single transaction directly from GURU. The new Locker and Student Locker profile types, available with the release of version 6.5, allow users to import locally stored files on-demand. Users can map file fields to each of the required system fields, including locker type, location, number, position, combination, padlock, student, and more. Upon completion, the transaction log displays the results of each import, which can be exported to Excel.
Gradebook Template Management
Version 6.5 simplifies the Gradebook Template management process for teachers. The Apply Template window, available from the template management interface, has been enhanced to allow teachers to unlink templates from classes and marking periods en masse. Each checkbox for a previously applied template can be updated from this window, and a new highlight indicates changed selections since the last update. Upon saving the changes, templates will be unlinked from classes, allowing the user to make changes to assignments and categories.
