Tooling U-SME Tips & Tricks

Administration Center Tip:

Did you know there is a quick and easy report for student grades? If your students and curriculum are grouped, this tool can make pulling grades a snap.

  1. Go to the Group Reports tab in the administration center.
  2. Make sure you filter by Group for the applicable students.
  3. Run the Student Grade Report (* 3rd report from the bottom in the Class Reports area) in the HTML format.IE Icon
  4. Use the Show Classes Completed drop-down menu to determine if you would like to see Classes Completed, Classes NOT Completed, or All Classes.
  5. Please note: date ranges are only applicable if you only select Show Classes Completed.
  6. Add your Filter by Program (this is your custom bundle of curriculum).

This report will show you the student name, class title, date completed, due date if applicable, final exam score (the students BEST attempt), average final exam score (the students average of all attempts at that test), and a green check for passing or an orange check for failing.

You can sort this report by any of the column headers by clicking on the column title:

Your report is now sorted by class title instead of student name:

Student Center Tip:

If you do not see all of your classes when logging into your student account, make sure you check the filtering options applied.

Expand the Options button highlighted on the screen above.

Make sure that both Class List Type and Order By are set to Default. Then, under Show, select All Classes, and under Filter by Department, select Show All Classes.
