The ClassReach Documentation for admins

Creating/Editing Academic Terms

As an Admin you may be able to create Academic Terms and then edit Academic Terms. This is a permissions based action, if you do not see some of the buttons and/or options described in this document then you may need to contact an Admin of your system to ensure all proper permissions have been given to complete the needed tasks. You should set up your Academic Terms based on how you would like your Grade Reports to be handled. For example, if you would like to see one averaged grade for the entire year then you may want only one Academic Term. If you would like a Spring average and a Fall average then you may want two Academic Terms. You will be able to break up the grades within Academic Terms by using the Grading Unit Groups.

Please Note: You cannot average two Academic Terms together to get a final grade.
