WE JUST STARTED A NEW TERM AND GRADES ARE ALREADY IN MY BOOK!

I bet you aren't really looking at the new term grade book.  Select the term by using the drop down menu below the yellow "Hide Grade Totals" box.  That should take you to a blank grade book.

Example: Mr. Brink started putting his grades AND scores into the Term “2nd Interim” when he should have been putting them in “2nd Term”. He now needs to transfer the assignments AND scores to the other Term.

Root Cause: When creating Categories you want to check "Term" only for the Grading Task (at the bottom).  Do not check Interim or Final.  If Interim or Final are not checked, assignments cannot be added to those tasks.
 
Before you begin the assignment/scores transfer process, make sure you understand...
     -which assignments and scores need to be moved, and
     -to which Term/Task they need to be moved.
 
  • Log in to Infinite Campus.
  • Open your grade book to the section that has the assignments and scores that need transferred.
  • Locate the assignment that need transferred and right-click on the heading.
  • Click on “Edit/Delete Assignment”.
  • Click OK.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the Assignment Detail screen.
  • Check the box for the Term to which you want the assignment transferred.
  • If needed, check the radio button for the Category to which you want the assignment transferred.
  • Uncheck the box for the Task from which the assignment is being transferred. A window will appear asking you to select to move or discard scores.
  • Choose to Move scores to a different standard or task.
  • Select the appropriate Task.
  • Click Save.
  • Repeat these steps for each assignment you want to transfer.


Now go and uncheck the "Interim" and "Final" boxes for your Categories.  If the check box is greyed out, it may be that you still have assignments that need transferred or deleted.
