If teachers are having an issue with entering grades, final grade setup may not be complete. 



Use Final Grades Setup to view and set up your school's grading terms and their parameters. Define the dates of each grading term in the school year and assignment names for which teachers enter final grades for that term.

When you store final grades at the end of each term, you store a specific final grade, such as Q1. Before you can store final grades, you must set up final grades in PowerSchool. Ensure that the following steps have been completed so that teachers can use the gradebook to report their students' grades to PowerSchool.

Set up final grades one term at a time. When you set up final grades for a term, you affect only the courses that belong to that term. For example, a first semester course belongs only to Semester 1; it does not belong to Quarter 1, Quarter 2, or the entire school year.

After you set up final grades in PowerSchool, the information is automatically sent to each teacher's gradebook.
