The ClassReach Documentation for admins

Creating/Editing GPA Scales

As an Admin you may be able to create and then edit GPA Scales for your school’s ClassReach account.┬áThis is a permissions based task, if you do not see some of the options and/or buttons mentioned within this document, then you may need to contact an administrator for your school’s account to ensure you have the proper permissions granted. You can have multiple GPA Scales to account for different Course Options, such as Honors and AP courses.

  • Sign in to your Admin ClassReach account.
  • Navigate to the Settings tab at the top of your screen.
  • Click GPA Calculation in the Classroom Settings window.
  • Click Edit GPA Scales to add a new scale. This would be used to add different scales for different types of courses. For example, an honors course may use a different GPA scale than a normal (default) course.
  • Check the box next to all the different categories you would like to add scales for. Remember that this will create new scales for each one, so if your normal high school courses work the same as the default scale then there is no need to create a new scale, leave the box unchecked and the courses will use the default.
  • Click Save.

To Create a New GPA Scale

  • Click the +Scale Entry to add a new entry.
  • Fill out the relevant fields:
    • Low Range: This will be the lowest numerical grade that would result in this GPA score. For example: many schools consider any grade between 90 and 100 to calculate as a 4.0 for GPA, so the input for this field would be 90.
    • GPA: This would be the score received for the grade, in our example above the input for this field would be 4.
  • Click Save.

To Edit a Current GPA Scale

  • Click the tab of the Scale Category you would like to edit.
  • Edit relevant fields.
  • Click Save.
