  • Missing Assignment Percentage (SIS-105423) [Enhancement]

    A new Missing Assignments tool has been added to the Grading & Standards area of System Administration. This tool allows districts to set a missing assignment percentage per school. Assignments flagged as missing by teachers will automatically calculate the assignment score as the entered percentage of Total Points possible. For example, a 10 point assignment with a Missing Assignment Percentage of 50 would calculate as 5 points. Teachers are not able to enter a score if the missing flag is marked. If no percentage is entered, missing assignments calculate as zero points, in keeping with previous logic.
