Configure Gradebook Transfer Settings in Gradient
Customize settings for how students are organized within each class (last name sort, first name sort, student ID sort) and how the transfer feature works with your online gradebook.
To configure your Gradient settings for Grade Transfer access your Account Menu in the top right corner of your screen and select Settings.
Then, select Grade Transfer from the list of options on the left.
STUDENT SORT: Select the Name Sorting format that will match your online gradebook. Sorting by Student ID is often the best option to account for how student names are recorded or sorted differently across platforms.
STUDENT NAME FORMAT: Spaces, apostrophes and hyphens in a name can change the sort order. Select whether you want to include or ignore special characters when students are sorted using first or last names.
GRADE ENTRY: Match how Gradient "pastes" grades into your online gradebook with how you would manually enter them (move between scores down a column by hitting return, tab, etc.)
SPEED OF ENTRY: Select how quickly you want data to be transferred.
Note: Speed of transfer is a setting you may need to adjust based on your online gradebook and network performance.
