Posting Grades from Elementary Grade Book (Report Card)

Based on your feedback, the grading window will open on June 1.  Link to Grading Dates 2015-2016


Here are action steps you need to take to make posting grades (generating your report cards) as smooth and stress free as possible:

  • Get all scores and assignments entered and updated into your IC Grade Book.  By having everything entered and up to date, you can focus on going through the posting process.  

  • Grade books with the Essential Elements follow the SAME steps as listed below.  There is no difference in the logistics.  

  • Yes, you can override grades/scores in IC!  This has been a frequent question.

  • The grading window opens on Wednesday, June 1 and closes on Thursday, June 9.  You can only post grades and enter comments during that 9 day window.  Step by step posting directions will be available at this LINK.

  • If you are ready, you can get a jump start on comments by putting them in a google doc.  You will then be able to cut and paste the comments into IC.  Comments will be entered by content area.  You DO NOT have to enter a comment for each strand on the report card.  You may go to the last posted strand and enter a comment for the entire content area.  For example:  In literacy, enter the comment at the Speaking & Listening Strand.  This will force the comment to appear under the content area box on the report card.  

  • The report card will be sent to families via the IC parent portal.  Families that have requested a hard copy will be mailed a report card. See below for how the report card is set up in IC.

    • Sample Elementary Report Card by Grade Level  Click here to access the folder. LINK

CIA Update: AVMR Assessment Reminders and Clarification

posted Apr 22, 2016, 11:05 AM by Julie Mosher

As we approach the end of the year, data collection showing evidence of student growth in the various content areas is under way.  AVMR is the Oshkosh Area School District’s benchmark assessment that allows the district to show growth in foundational skills and conceptual understanding  of mathematics at the building, grade level and classroom level.  In addition, classroom teachers use the data on a regular basis to inform instruction.  The spring scores will be key to the classroom teacher that will be receiving your students in the fall so that instruction can begin right at the beginning of the year.  


Here are some reminder, tips and tricks to make your AVMR data entry experience as stress free as possible:


  • PLEASE remember that there is not a window for AVMR.  There is a deadline to promote the use of AVMR assessments as formative assessments and to allow you flexibility in conducting the assessments as you see students reach construct and level expectations. The deadline for this school year is May 27.

  • Once you have seen a child meet those expectations, you can assess and enter the score in IC and be done assessing the student with AVMR protocols.

  • REMEMBER….You may not need to start at the beginning of the assessment every time you assess.You may conduct the assessment starting at a point of entry based on your assessment data and teaching notes--using your prior (January) testing protocols as a guide for your point of entry will make this easy.  

  • This assessment time should be an exciting time to confirm the hard work you have done to move students all  year long!

  • Please work with your building IST-Math to discuss the best starting point and efficient strategies to make this as meaningful and efficient as you can.  Math Skills teachers, please work with Sara McKittrick.  


As always, please reach out to your friendly building IST, Julie Holmes or Julie Mosher with any additional questions.

Elementary Progress Reporting


How do I prepare for elementary progress reporting?


The OASD will continue to encourage students and families to go to Infinite Campus as their first stop for information.  The best way to prep for progress reporting or grade posting is to keep your IC grade book up to date!  We encourage and expect our educators to update and input assignment data weekly so that students and parents can get the most up to date information.  Accurate grading and record keeping as well as communication with families on student progress aligns with Danielson Domain 4 Components 4b and 4c.  Click on this LINK for more information on the Danielson Framework for Teaching.  


An email will be sent out to elementary families via IC messenger on April 6th that elementary grades are up to date. The email letter is at this LINK. Families will go to the grades tab in the IC Portal for the latest progress for students.  Information will start to go into newsletters and we encourage you as teachers to start referring families to the IC Portal for updates on progress.


In addition to progress reporting, we always communicate with families when a child’s classroom performance significantly changes.  This may be for the positive or if the student is struggling.  Your building principal will give you more information on your learning community’s expectations.

With the recent update to Chrome 47, an issue has cropped up in Campus Instruction where there are dropdowns boxes.  It does not allow the user to click and select an option with a mouse from within the dropdown box.  A few places where Modal dropdowns can be found is when switching schools and calendars,  in Post Grades and selecting Grading by Task, and then a Task selection dropdown box pops up or in Campus Messenger.


Workaround: Navigate by clicking with your mouse to open the dropdown box, then use the arrow keys to go up or down to reach your selection, Once your selection is highlighted, click anywhere outside the drop down to make your selection.
