Districts have the ability to "Track Inventory" and "Inventory Limit" fields on Step 4 of the Activity Builder when the activity is in the "Active - Registration Open" status. Those fields can be changed until the activity is in a "Registration Closed" or "Active - Registration Closed" status.
Ad Hoc Reporting
New fields have been added to the Learner Portfolio > Class Rank with Custom Cum GPA options. This change allows the Class Rank to show for all GPA calculations, regardless of the Calculation Type that was selected when the Custom GPA was created.
The new fields are:
A new Redistribute option is available with the Manage Blended Learning Groups tool. Redistribute can be used after the start of the school year or at the beginning of a new term to re-balance groups, to move students from groups that are no longer used into active groups, or to address a temporary shift in learning (extended natural disasters, for example).
A new System Preference called Cascade Enrollment End Date to Blended Learning Group Assignment End Date has been added. This preference determines whether the End Date entered on a student's Enrollment record should also apply to the student's Blended Learning Group Assignment.
- When set to Yes, when a user adds an End Date to a student's Enrollment record and saves, the student's Blended Learning Group Assignment is updated to end on that same End Date.
- When set to No, the student's Blended Learning Group Assignment is NOT ended when the Enrollment record is ended.
The following updates have been made to assignments.
Applying Assignment Updates Across Sections
When teachers make changes to an assignment that is aligned to multiple sections, they now have the option to apply those changes to other aligned sections or not. Changes are grouped by Dates, Grading, and Content, which includes the Summary and any attached content or tasks. After saving a change, a pop-up displays, allowing the teacher to mark which changes should be applied to which sections.
Adding an Assignment to a Section Group
Teachers now have the option of creating an assignment in the Grade Book when viewing the Grade Book for a Section Group. All sections in the Section Group are added to the assignment. The Grading options available are those that apply to all of the assignment's sections. Teachers can modify dates and grading setup by clicking Add/Edit in the Sections list.
New - Default Scoring Settings in Categories
The Categories editor has been updated so that teachers can set default scoring information by category. For each category, teachers can select a Default Scoring Type and enter Default Points and a Default Multiplier, for all instances of the category via the table header or individually by section. When a category is selected on the assignment editor, the scoring type, points, and multiplier populate based on the default options established.
Multi-Aligned Assignments Issue
Previously, if a teacher created an assignment with multiple alignments, individualized it, scored it, and then tried to remove one of the alignments, an error occurred. This has been corrected.
Copying & Duplicating Assignments
Teachers now have the option of editing the student groups and individualization of an assignment as part of the copy process. Additionally, if a teacher changes the title of a duplicated assignment, the abbreviation is automatically updated.
The toggle that allowed teachers to switch back and forth from the new design of the Control Center to the old has been removed. Only the new design, which includes a customizable visual display and new features such as Student Questions and Engagement Check-In, is available going forward.
A new Fee Preferences tool is now available for districts to control whether Fees display in Campus Parent and Campus Student and replaces the Fees, Fees Comments, and Displayed Text > Fees Display Options (found in System Administration > Portal > Preferences > Display Options). Districts can use the tool to define whether fees display for future, active, or past years as well as whether comments display. Fee Preferences are unique for each school. User and Group tool rights that were used for the Display Options tool have been applied to the new Fee Preferences tool.
Users can now create a new Grading Window for a single grading task and term by clicking on an empty cell from the main view of the Grading Window.
The Transcript Audit Report & Standards Alignment Report can now be generated in DOCX format.
A new feature called the "Public Store" is now available for all districts that use Campus Payments and have migrated to the new payments platform. The Public Store is a website where anyone can shop for goods or services from your district. For example, your district might want to create a Public Store to sell spirit wear, tickets to events, or items for booster club fundraising. Please note, purchase limits do not apply to items in the Public Store and the Orders Report does NOT include Public Store purchases. As part of this new feature, people can now buy things at School Stores where they do not have students enrolled.
In the Survey Designer, to make the question type easier to use, the input field for the question type has been modified to a dropdown list and a new Stepped property option has been added.
The Transcript Batch Report can now be generated in DOCX format.
An Auto-fill Course fields Based on Course Number Selection preference has been added to the Course Information Detail. When marked, several course fields auto-populate when the Course Number field is selected.
This preference is available when adding a new Detail record, when adding rows to the Transcript, and when editing existing Transcript records.
When the same Course Number is included in multiple calendars/catalogs, all available options for that Course Number are listed, meaning the user can selected from which calendar and catalog the Transcript record should reflect.
Ohio – EMIS
The Term field in the FR extract has been updated to first look at to the Code field on the reported Grading Task. If a Code is entered (Y, S, T, Q, or X), this field reports that code followed by the number of the term that the Grading Task is assigned to. Otherwise, the Term field reports based on existing logic.
Three new values have been added to the CORE Area for Credit field on the Course tab:
- TEL: Technology Education/Computer Science used as a World Language Credit per ORC 3313.603(E)(3) not for ALG II/Adv Sci
- TEM: Technology Education/Computer Science used to meet Algebra II requirement per ORC3313.603(C)(3)
- TES: Technology Education/Computer Science used to meet Advanced Science requirement per ORC3133.603(C)(5)
Three State Seals have had their wording updated to reflect whether the student has earned or plans to earn the seal.
