Infinite Campus Updates



Over the summer many updates were introduced to Infinite Campus. Here are the ones affecting your Gradebooks:

NEW Copying Assignments in the Grade Book
Previously, the only way to copy assignments from one section to another was by using the Assignment Copier in the Planner. The Grade Book has been updated to also include this tool in the Settings menu.

NEW Discussions
Discussions, which has been in Closed Beta since the beginning of the year, is now generally available.  With Moderator rights, teachers can then moderate discussions in their active sections.
This new tool allows teachers to create and manage discussions with students through the Portal. Teachers can select participants, moderate responses, and view discussions through a variety of filtering and sorting options.

Scoring Editor Updates
  1. Column and row headers in the scoring editor have been frozen, so that when scrolling through the roster, the headers stay at the top of the screen and student names stay at the left and are always visible.
  2. The Scoring Alignment information has been moved to a legend access by clicking the link in the top right of the editor.
  3. When scoring an assignment aligned to a student group, the name of the group will now display at the top of the scoring editor in the center.
  4. Columns in the editor are now sortable.

Student Assessment Summary
The Student Assessment Summary report has been added to the Campus Instruction Grade Book reports.

Student Summary Report
A Report Card Comments option has been added to the Student Summary Report. Comments report below the task/standard.

NEW / Roster Link to Student Information
You can now go directly from the Campus Instruction student detail page to the (more detailed) Campus Tools student record.  Just click on the blue “to Student Information” link.

Campus Instruction Grade Book - Posted Percentages
Logic in the Grade Book has been updated so that when a teacher enters a percent in the Posted Percent column, the Grade column populates based on the Grading Scale selected.


If you have any questions, contact your PDC Staff. Additional information is available via the Campus Community.
