Graduation Requirements Report

The Graduation Requirements Report provides an overview of student progress towards satisfying the graduation requirements set up in the student's assigned graduation program.

If the selected school does not contain grade 12, the Graduation Requirements Report will be titled Promotion Requirements Report (Grades > Promotion Requirements Report).

Viewing the Graduation Requirements Report for a Group of Students

1. In the Grades menu, click Graduation Requirements Report.

2. On the Search Screen, enter search criteria to locate the group of students. Click More Search Options to access  search options based on student fields. Click Search.

At the top of the report, Course History is selected by default. When Course History is selected, the report considers each student's full course history when displaying the progress the student has made towards fulfilling the graduation requirements assigned to his/her graduation program.  

For more information on conducting a student search, see the article titled, Searching for Students.

3. To only consider Full-year Grades, Semester Grades, or Quarter Grades, click the appropriate options at the top of the screen.

4. Modify the Effective date as needed.

Only students active as of the effective date will display on the report.

5. Click Change to regenerate the report.

6. Select the graduation program to view from the pull-down.

The report displays students who are assigned to the selected graduation program and have credits remaining to graduate. If a student has completed all of his/her graduation requirements, he or she will not appear on the report. Each graduation subject is listed in its own column, along with the number of required credits in parentheses. A green check mark in a column indicates the student has fulfilled the credit requirements for the graduation subject. A green check mark with an hourglass indicates the student has one or multiple courses in progress that fulfill the requirement. Upon passing the course(s), the requirement will be fulfilled. A number value indicates the number of credits that remain to be taken by the student in order to fulfill the requirement.

7. Hover your mouse over a check mark or credit field to view the course title, the grade the student received, the number of credits, the term for completed courses, and the content term (if applicable). The course title, the number of credits, the term, and the content term (if applicable) displays for enrolled courses.  

Only applicable to middle schools that use semester courses for non-full year grades: When the system preference Weight GPA by Credits is not enabled, and the grade is not an F or I, the system will check the marking period of the grade. If the marking period is 0 or full year, it is counted as 1 credit, otherwise it is counted as 0.5 credits. If the grade is an F or I, it is counted as 0 credits. To modify this system preference, from the Setup menu, select System Preferences > School Preferences/Default School Preferences tab > Grading tab.

If assessments have been assigned as part of the graduation requirement plan, tests will be listed as well. Hover your mouse over a check mark to view the name of the test passed.

Graduation Requirements Report

Assessments are established as part of a graduation requirement program via Grades > Graduation Requirements when Assessment is selected from the Type pull-down of the Graduation Programs and Requirements tab. When multiple tests are selected, students only need to pass one to complete the requirement.  Navigate to Assessments > Standardized Tests to set the Min Scale Score from the Setup Tests tab, which is used to determine if a student has passed the test.

8. Scroll to the right to view the columns for state assessments, EOC requirements, and Biliteracy Gold and Silver.

If a student has met an assessment or EOC requirement, the pass date displays in the column.

For the online course requirement, "like courses" are considered in the logic for whether the student has met the requirement. In the Course Catalog, the "Online Req. Like Courses" field is used to determine the "like courses" for a course.

Printing the Graduation Requirements Report

1. When viewing the report, select the check box next to each student to print, or select the check box in the column header to select all the students in the list.

2. Click Print at the bottom of the screen and follow the prompts for printing.

Exporting the report using the Excel or Print icons above the table will export the report regardless of the students selected. Clicking Print at the bottom of the screen will print the report with the selected students, with each student starting on a new page.

Viewing the Graduation Requirements Report for an Individual Student

The report includes fields set up with the Visible on Student Grades toggle enabled via Students > Student Fields.

1. Click a student's name to view the report for the individual student.

The report displays each graduation requirement, the number of credits required to graduate, the credits remaining to be taken, and the currently enrolled credits. At the top of the report, additional information is displayed, including the student's GPA, class rank, cohort year, total credits, online course requirement status, reading and math assessment statuses, and EOC assessment statuses.

For the online course requirement, "like courses" are considered in the logic for whether the student has met the requirement. In the Course Catalog, the "Online Req. Like Courses" field is used to determine the "like courses" for a course.

At the bottom of the screen, Merit Designation Requirements, Scholar Designation Requirements, and Biliteracy Seal are listed, along with the completion status.

For the Scholar Designation Requirements,  only the AP/IB/AICE/Dual Enrollment requirement can use a duplicated course to fulfill the credit.

2. Hover your mouse over a check mark or credit field in the graduation requirements section to view the course title, the grade the student received, the number of credits, the term for completed courses, and the content term (if applicable). The course title, the number of credits, the term, and the content term (if applicable) displays for enrolled courses.  

A "W" on the report indicates the credits were earned through a waiver.

If assessments have been assigned as part of the graduation requirement plan, tests will be listed as well. Hover your mouse over a check mark to view the name of the test passed.
