How to Navigate the Grade Section

Teachers have a Gradebook and Quick Grade in the Grade section. The Gradebook is a quick way for a teacher to see all scores or coins for a week for the entire classroom. The Quick Grade page is where a teacher can quickly grade all questions that require grading by a teacher.

From your Studies Weekly Online account and within the desired Classroom Card, click the Grade button.


After Grade is clicked, the classroom navigation bar is collapsed to optimize screen space. To reopen the navigation bar click the 3 lines next to the name of the report at the top of the page.
