Step 5 - Create Report Card Predefined Value Sets
Predefined Value Sets are those marks that a teacher enters on the report card. For each set of marks a teachers uses, a different value set is created. Examples of value sets are Checkmarks for selecting options on a Report Card, Work Habits, or Effort marks. Most report cards have a key or legend with this information.
Predefined Value Sets can be edited or changed throughout the Report Card building process.
Create a Predefined Value Set
Select Create a New Predefined Value Set:
1. Create a Name for the Value Set. Note that this name will not display on the actual report card. Name the Value Set carefully for easy identification by the report card creator. For example if different grade levels have different values then add the grade levels to the title.
2. Enable Text Entry allows users to manual type in text (Yes) or enter from a dropdown menu of options (No).
Options 3 and 4 below are only used in special instances. If you think that your report card requires these contact your implementation manager to verify prior to using. In most cases these will be left as the default.
3. If you would like the option selected by the user to Print As a Separate Value, select Yes or No. For example, if a user selects "E", you would want a separate value of "X" to be inserted in its place.
4. Enter the Print Character to support the Print As Separate Value.
5. When finished, select Create Predefined Value Set.
