You are here:
< All Topics

With Homeschool Planet you can add grade tracking to any class in just a few simple steps. To find out how, see below!

Directions for Adding Grading to a Class

  1. Select the title of the class you would like to add grading to from the Calendar and choose edit.
  2. Click on the Grading tab and then choose Setup grading.
  3. Choose the grading scale you would like to use.
  4. Place a check mark next to the grading categories you would like to use.
    • You can edit the categories by selecting the add or edit categories link.
  5. For each category you checked, enter the percent (0-100), that category contributes to the final grade of the class.
    • Example: Homework (30), Test (70). Make sure the percentage equals 100 % and then select Save.
  6. Once you select Save, a list of all assignments already added to the class will appear. Select a grading category for each assignment and then choose OK.
    • The radio button at the top of each grading option will select that category for all assignments. So if 90% of the assignments are homework and 10% are tests it would be easiest to first select the top button under Homework and then change just tests to the Test category.
    • The not graded category is for assignments you would like to be checked off, but do not need a grade.

Directions for Adding Grading to a Lesson Plan

  1. Go to the Lesson Plan Library and select the edit link next to the title of the plan you would like to add grading to.
  2. The lesson plan will open to the Assignments tab. There is a column called “Category” next to the “Do this” (assignment) column.
  3. Choose the category for each assignment from the drop-down menu.
    • If you need to add additional Grading Categories you can do that from the Grading tab.
  4. Once you have selected the category for each assignment select the Grading tab.
  5. For each grading category which has at least one active assignment enter the percent (0-100), that category contributes to the final grade of the class.
    • Example: Homework (30), Test (70). Make sure the percentage equals 100 % and then select Save.
    • Categories which have not been given any assignments will be grayed out.
  6. Select save and close.

Please note you can apply a lesson plan to the calendar, thereby making it a class, and use Adding Grading to a Class directions as well.
