These new reports detail gradebook adoption and the general publishing practices of teachers in your schools. The first report, Grade Publishing YTD, is designed around the most commonly asked question regarding teacher adoption: Are teachers updating grades at least once every two weeks? The second report, Posts: 30 Day Totals, gives insight into overall adoption of the system.
The reports are available to district and school admins. The district version lists data for all schools and the school version limits the data to teachers of that school.
For district admins, the Teacher Usage Stats link is available in the Toolbox on the right side of your portal. For school admins, principals, and APs, the link is available in your Quick Links.
