The SAFSMS Grade Book Feature captures subject assessments that have been taken over the entire period of a term. This feature (accessed solely by a subject teacher), allows the configuration of as many tests or assessments as desired for each subject. This means that assessments given per topic, or on a weekly, monthly, or even daily basis, can be captured and used as a percentage of some preconfigured assessment.
A pre-requisite for the Grade Book Feature is a pre-configured Assessment and its Assessment Breakdowns. This is because a group of grade book assessments form a certain percentage of the overall Assessment. For example, ten grade book assessments could form 70% of a preconfigured assessment.
There are two privileges that form the grade book feature: ‘Configure Grade Book Assessment’ and ‘Input Grade Book Scores’.
Below is a screenshot of what the GRADE BOOK looks like.
