Grade LevelsΒΆ

Grade levels describe the progress of students through the school. They may also be assigned to courses to describe their difficulty and place in the curricular sequence.

We will use the grade level sequence of an American secondary high school in this example: grades 9 through 12.

To create Grade Levels, you must be logged in as a member of Clerks or Site Managers. Select the School tab, and click on Grade Levels, under Customize:


Click Add > Level:




And so we’ll create the rest of the levels.


The order of the levels is significant. Levels are considered to represent a single linear sequence. If you need to adjust the order, click Actions > Reorder or Delete Levels:
