These are organized into documents that have three extra columns and a table of contents, such that you can manipulate them to suit your current teaching needs. They are a single grade basis and on a split grade(combined) grade basis.

Each has a Table of contents:

Here is how to change the document and update the Table of Contents:

  • Open the file.

  • Copy, cut or paste to make split grade, to delete subjects not covered, to add rotary classes or to include prep coverage.

  • Right click while the cursor is over the table of contents, and then select "update field"... then "update entire table".
