Create a Schoolwide Grade Scale

Creating a School Wide Grade Scale is a permission that needs to be turned on by your System Administrator.  This lesson is for District or System Admin.  In this lesson you will learn how to setup a School Wide Grade Scale which means teachers cannot control their own grade scale in their gradebook.  This does not affect report card grades, this only affects the grading scale in the teacher's gradebook.

Note: This feature only works with Points-Based Gradebooks.
