A few of you have had students use the email@example.com to receive assistance with their Infinite Campus login. Thank you. This allows us to assist them and also track the issues facing you and our students better. I do ask a few favors of you.
1. If you have a student submit a helpdesk ticket for Infinite Campus, have them use their school email account. That is the one that should be associated with their IC account.
2. Have them cc you in the email. This will help them in the long run. A few of them have requested help, but do not read the followup email with the instructions. If you have them cc you, you will also get the followup email to reference and eliminate any excuses they might try to use.
3. Please have them include their name and what they are having trouble with as part of the email body. There are a few that don't put their name in the email and some of them names do not show up as part of their email address. This adds a few extra steps when we try to assist them because we need to look up their name before we are able to work on their problem.

To post a grade for students who have been moved out of your class,
please do the following:
In Infinite Campus
Click on Account Settings (top right)
Click OFF "Show only active students"
To Grade Book
Be sure you are in Q2
Go to the class section the student was in
The student should now be visible.
Write down (or remember) the student's final score.
Click on the orange/red POST button at the top of the In Progress grades
All your other grades should post, but not for student's who have been removed.
Go to Post Grades (left drop down menu)
Find the student and manually type in the number grade and letter grade.
Please make sure the removed student is visible in your printed grades. You may need to reprint your section summary.
You can create Categories of assignments and weigh them with percentages equaling 100%.
The “Weighted Categories” option under Calculate Grades is restricted to admin approval because it has to be determined by class. For example, if one geometry class wants to weight their grades, all the geometry classes have to weight their grades.
If your assignments are out of order in Infinite Campus, here is the fix!
Go to the page where you type in your grades
At the top, left-hand side, click Sort.
Then choose Sort By: SEQUENCE
Close this screen.
Your grades should be in date order.
You will have to do this for each class
Click on the little Expand Arrow
T= Turned In
M=Missing (0 if you add this grade)
Click on Fill scores/Comments
Click on GT1: Semester Grade
Type in grade you want for students or comment you want for assignment
Choose: All, Empty or Present and Empty
IF IT’S RED, YOU NEED TO SAVE
Just in case students ask for a printout of their grades and you grade on a point system.... here's a tip to make it easier for them to understand:
**********make sure the "percent" box is checked when printing out their form.
