Instead of numbers, like in Practice and Quiz data, you’ll see various symbols that reflect a student’s status on Diagnostics in your Gradebook.
The data from Diagnostics is meant provide a “birds-eye view” of your students’ current understanding of different concepts to help plan instruction. As a result, we do not assign number grades in the Gradebook to the data collected from these assessments. Here is a breakdown of what each symbol represents:
The check mark symbol next to a student’s name means that the student has completed the Diagnostic on time.
The check mark with a small clock symbol means that the student completed the Diagnostic, but turned it in after the due date.
The purple line symbol means that the student didn’t complete the assignment, even though it was assigned to him or her. This line could mean it wasn’t started or that the Diagnostic is incomplete.
The circle with a line and a clock symbol means that the student started it after it was due, but didn’t complete it.
If the column is blank, this means that the student didn’t complete it because it wasn’t assigned to him or her.
Note: Since we do not give numerical grades to students for Diagnostics, where the average and class average are normally shown, you’ll see an N/A.
