Reporting Groups can be setup to include Grading Periods across multiple terms so you can report on a given time frame all within one report. Mainly used to support students who have classes that are in different terms.
Note: Any custom Grading Period weighting will be considered in the average calculation for the Reporting Group. If students do not have the same class in different terms, you do not need to set this up.
To get started, from your Admin App, click Create New Reporting Group under Reporting Options.
In the window that appears, give a name for the Reporting Group, select the Grading Periods you want to include, and click Create.
Once you have collected the Grading Periods into Reporting Groups, you will be able to manage them from the Reporting Options view. From here you will be able to edit the name of the Reporting Group, add or remove Grading Periods, and delete the reporting group all together.
