Grades not showing up correctly in FamilyLink?

For some reason some classrooms are having trouble getting their grades to show up correctly on the Parent Portal side through FamilyLink.
Sometimes we get grades in FamilyLink to show like this:





And we want them to show up like this:





One of the reasons that it doesn't show correctly is simply that it doesn't have correct mark tables imported from SchoolMaster.  This tutorial will demonstrate how to import mark tables in SchoolMaster.

Tutorial

1.  Go to "Utility" and then choose the "Import Mark Tables..." option.









2.  If you are teaching K-6 choose the "Elementary/Standards Mark Tables" option.  If you are in the High School or Jr. High setting choose the "Secondary Mark Tables." Click OK




3. Now if you don't belong to Snowflake School District then you would get a different list appear.  For those who are in our district choose the TI Standard Mark option and then click "OK."














4.  Now you should be back to your gradebook.  Click the "View" dropdown box and then choose the "configuration" option.





5.  One the "Mark Table" dropdown box choose the "TI Standard Mark" option.









Your grade should now be working on FamilyLink
