How do I use the School Browser Tool?

The School Browser allows any staff member to browse course agendas, course content, student grades, CRAs, IAKTS, and more within their school.  Need to find out if a student is struggling in more than just your course?  Use the School Browser to see how that student is doing in all of their courses.  Want to know if your project culminating event conflicts with another course?  Use the School Browser to check out the agendas and calendars of other courses on campus.

*Performance Indicators

Notice the red, yellow and green dots in the school browser.  Those are performance indicators.  

If the current student grade (percent) is below the passing score limit (set in the course settings), the indicator will be red.  If the current student grade is less than 25% bigger than passing score limit, the indicator will be yellow.  If the current student grade is more than 25% bigger than the passing score limit, the indicator will be green.

 So, if the passing score is 70% (which is the default), the cutoff for yellow would be 87%.   Most teachers would likely set the passing score of 60% which would result in the cut off for yellow being 75%
