    Home Page When you log in, this screen displays a list of students who have been added to, or dropped from, any of your class rosters within the last ten days. Any student having a birthday in the next ten days will be on the list of Upcoming Birthdays.

    In the upper right corner of this page, as well as most other pages, is a notification of which user is currently logged in for this session plus a Sign out link to log out of the gradebook application.

    The Attendance section Quick Attendance: will take you to the attendance portion of your gradebook for entering or modifying student attendance data. Attendance Grid: displays a view of all attendance recorded. Seating Chart: Another way attendance can be recorded.

    The Gradebook section Quick Grades: enter grades or edit scores or letter grades one assignment at a time; comments about the score may be added. Gradebook Grid: will allow you to add and modify class assignments and student grades. The Reports section My Reports: This is where Reports are stored once they are run. New Report: will provide a list of available reports for your classes and allow you to print or preview these reports.
