In PowerSchool, there are several shortcuts that help teachers enter grade data faster. Try these to speed up grade entry:
To enter the same score for all students
Type the score in for one student, then click the vertical fill button. This will fill in the same score for all students; click Ok to acknowledge. Click Save Scores.
To enter the same score for most students
First, enter the scores that are different from most of the other students. Then, type in the score everyone else scored for one student. Click the vertical fill button. This will fill in the same score for the remaining blank students; click Ok to acknowledge the change. Click Save Scores.
To clear all scores
If you've made a mistake and need to clear all scores, delete the score of one student, then click the vertical fill button. Click Ok to acknowledge clearing grades. Click Save Scores, and/or resume entering grades. Remember to save again when the new grades have been entered.
To fill scores, flags, and/or comments
This is useful when several students are missing an assignment, or have turned in an assignment late. First, enter the grades that will not get the flag(s) or comments. Then enter one student's score along with the appropriate flag/comment. With their score selected, click vertical fill, then click Score, Flags, Comments. Acknowledge the change by clicking Ok. Click Save Scores.
