Creating a Class Hours Report

  1. Select Class Hours from the Reports menu.
  2. Choose the Layout that works best for your needs. The four options are as follows:

Customizing Your Hours Tracking Report

You may customize each of the following aspects of your Hours Tracking Report

  1. Student– decide which students you wish to be included in the Class Hours Report by placing a check mark next to their name.
  2. Subject/Category– If you wish to limit the assignments or activities included select only those you desire with a check mark. If you want all items to appear you mean leave them all unchecked.
  3. No Earlier Than/No Later Than– The default is to print just this school year’s classes and activities. If you wish to change the date parameters do so by adjusting the dates included here.
  4. School Year– Select the school year you wish to create the report for, if it not the current year.
  5. Category– This will let you select just certain grading categories to include in your Hours Report.
  6. Completion– Choose whether to use completed assignments, uncompleted assignments, or both.
  7. Resources– Make the appropriate selection for which resources you desire to be included.
