Note about Trimesters: The Term Manager has intentionally been made to leave out the ability to create trimester terms. We've found that In the majority of cases student schedules do not change at trimesters and trimesters are often installed as terms; however, it's best to install one, yearlong term and then use grading periods to setup the trimesters. The trimester grading periods will allow the grades to be submitted on a trimester-basis; whereas, the terms is related to scheduling only. If the students' schedules do not change during the change in grading period it would be best to utilize the yearlong term.
