Using the Gradebook
- Curriculum Integration: The Gradebook integrates directly with the curriculum for a class. If the selected class has an attached curriculum, all lessons in that curriculum will be shown in the Gradebook in the order that they appear in the curriculum. Lessons assigned that fall outside of the curriculum are also shown at the end. Curriculum lessons are colored blue, and non-curriculum lessons are colored gray.
- Lesson Progress Integration: Clicking a student’s name will navigate directly to that student’s Lesson Progress page with the class and date range already selected, based on the class and date selected from the Gradebook.
- Color Coded Grades: Lessons are color coded so that teachers are able to see, at a glance, which lessons have been graded, ungraded, assigned, and unassigned.
- Letter Grade/Multi Grade Support:
- Grades with multiple numeric grades are automatically averaged and receive an 'Avg' label. The class average is shown for each lesson in the Average Grade column.
- Single letter grades are marked with an alpha symbol and the letter grade is shown.
- Multiple letter grades are marked with an alpha symbol and the word 'Multi' is shown.
- Export to Excel: The Gradebook can be exported to an Excel® spreadsheet that will contain the gradebook as it was seen in the RightPath™ including all labels and color-coding.
- Freeze student Column: is a feature that keeps the student column visible as you scroll through the lessons assigned to each student.
- Grade Edit: when you click on a lesson to view or grade you will see the grade edit pop up, this will be explained in detail in the next section; Gradebook: viewing, grading, sending work back.
Student Monitoring in Gradebook

- Grade: to enter a grade for the lesson, click in the grade box and type the grade. Note: this box will only be available if the student has submitted the assignment, if not you’ll receive a message that requires you to enable grading.
- When you grade you can choose to release the grade, lock the assignment from student’s view, or release the answer key by checking the checkbox next to the appropriate action and clicking the update button.
- Once the lesson is reviewed and grade determined, find the Feedback section. This is where you can write feedback to the student. Simply write your message to the student in the box and click the Update button to send it. This will send the student an email to his account with the message you typed.
- Adding an Internal Comment: this feature is designed so that you can leave yourself or other teachers that may be grading work a mess without the student seeing it. In order to do this, type your message in the Internal Comment box and click update. This message will remain here for yourself and others to view.
- Uploading a feedback document: to upload a document, find the upload feedback section, browse your computer for the file you’d like to upload and attach it. Click update once you’re finished to send the document to the student email within their account.
- Actions Button: This new feature allows the user to lock, release grades, reassign, or unassign one or multiple lessons by checking the check box next to the lesson name(s) and choosing the action you’d like to occur.
