Configuring Academic Terms

Via Settings > Academic Terms

Logged in as an Administrator, navigate to Settings > Academic Terms > select Programme > click + Configure New Academic Year.

Configure each term Name, Start and End date. You can also click Add New Term or Remove to add or remove terms.

Tick the Restrict teachers from making any changes to term grades checkbox to lock the gradebook, restricting teachers from making any changes to grades for each term. Click Add Term set when complete.

Note: The academic year will not update to "Current" until the start of the first academic term in that academic year. When the new academic year becomes "Current", your assignments/tasks that fall within those dates will display in the unit planners. 

Note: As the academic term dates are not visible to students or teachers, but are used to group tasks/assignments within the gradebook, we recommend they are set to be continuous (i.e. they should be inclusive of your school holidays in order to avoid gaps between terms). 

Future Academic Terms can always be edited by clicking the Edit button.
