Note: you can enter, save and edit State Classroom Based Assessments results for your students right up to the results entry deadline, however once you hit 'Submit Grades', you will no longer be able to edit them, even if you have submitted before the deadline. If you notice a mistake or need to edit a grade after you submit it, contact the school office who can help you with this.
Go to Assessments > State CBA > here you will see an overview of State CBAs for all the subjects you teach, the start and end date for completion of results entry and whether the school administration staff have synced your results with PPOD.
Click on the three dots beside the relevant CBA > 'View'
This brings you to the individual teaching groups > click the three dots beside a teaching group > 'Add grades'
If you've already entered CBA grades for the entire teaching group, it will have the green 'Complete' status.
If the status is incomplete, click the three dots > 'Add Grades'.
(If it is your first time entering CBAs for the teaching group, its easiest to start from the top. Click 'Add Grades' for the first student and you will be brought to an alphabetical list of students which are ready for results entry.)
Next, enter in the result (you can choose it from the dropdown), your comment and whether the student was present, continue through all of the students in the same way.
When you are happy that the results have been entered correctly > hit 'Save'.
Back on the class list screen you have two options. You can go back into 'View Grades' to make changes to the ones you have already saved
You can Submit the Grades that have been completed by clicking 'Submit Grades' at the bottom of the page. Once you do this, you will not be able to go back and edit it. They will be submitted to the school administration staff to review before they submit the results to PPOD.
Tip: if you mark a student as absent when entering CBA results, it will count as 'Completed'.
