This lesson will walk you through the process of enabling Live Citizenship within Gradebook.
Q. Who can use this feature?
A. Everyone! For ISI clients, it will benefit when posting Secondary Grades via the Illuminate Gradebook. For both ISI/DnA clients, it will benefit by having Citizenship displayed in the Student Profile & Portal throughout the year.
Q. If I enable this feature, what will it do for me if I’m an ISI client?
A. It will lighten the entry load for you at the end of each Grading Period, as it will auto-fill based on what you’ve inputted along the way. It will also display the current, to-date grade in both the Student Profile & Portal.
Q. If I enable this feature, what will it do for me if I’m a DnA client?
A. It will help you keep track of your students Citizenship efforts throughout the year & display the current, to-date grade in both the Student Profile & Portal.
Q. Does this feature talk to Elementary Report Cards?
A. It currently does not.
Q. How does it work?
A. Each Gradebook now has a “Display Citizenship” option under Setup > Preferences > Other.
Q. What Citizenship Grades are available?
A. This setup is controlled by your System Admins, via the Grade List page. For DnA clients, this will likely need to be set up before Live Citizenship course grade mapping will be available. See A- Grade Mark List to properly set up the citizenship grades.
Q. Why do I need to use the Course Grade to Course Grade Mapping page?
A. For ISI users, this page is not new. Prior to Posting Grades, this was the page users were prompted with, ensuring the Course Grades aligned with the overall grades in the Gradebook. Doing so ensured Citizenship marks would be accepted on the Post Grades page, confirming the course is valid and active. Now, with Live Citizenship tracking, this step has just been bumped up in priority and won’t need to be seen again for the remainder of the academic year (unless you choose to make modifications).
