Student Graduation Screen

Modified on Thu, Feb 22 at 2:15 PM

Stating with the class of 2016, students will be required to demonstrate proficiency in English Language Arts and Mathematics in order to qualify for Graduation.

Proficiency will be determined by achieving the "cut" score from any one of the the following assessments.

ACT, Act Aspire, Accuplacer, ASVAB-AFQT, PARCC, PSAT, or SAT

The Graduation tab in Student Data (Student Data>Modify Student>Graduation) contains a list of all mapped assessments in Genesis that the Student has taken, a list of the students local credit requirements as well as some additional fields for graduation related information.



Tests, for which the student has achieved the "cut" sore, will be highlighted in GREEN.  You may recalculate this screen at any time by hitting the recalculate button.

Scores are also updated from the Scheduled Task, "Graduation Assessments".  

Students who meet the "cut" score for ELA and for MATH will have met their Graduation Assessment Requirement as indicated by the text below the test scores. 

The text will additionally tell you the students Graduation Pathway.

In addition to meeting a cut score, a student may also receive a Portfolio Appeal for either ELA or Math. 

Checking off the "Received Portfolio Appeals for ELA" or "Received Portfolio Appeals for Math" will meet that respective subjects requirement.

This is also true with Met Alternate ELA Requirement Specified in IEP and Met Alternate Math Requirement Specified in IEP

There is one last means for having a student marked as having met the Assessment Requirement for Graduation. 

You may use the "Override Meets Math or ELA Requirements via:" fields which substitutes the need for keeping actual assessment scores in Genesis.

Pathways marked in this field will override any calculations Genesis would otherwise make when determining graduation requirements.

In addition to this screen, you can search for and report against the student table using the property "meetsELAGradRequirment", "meetsELAGradRequirment" or ""meetsGraduationAssessmentRequirments". 

These return a "Y" if the student has met graduation requirements for their Class Of.  "graduationPathwayELA" AND "graduationPathwaymATH" will return the pathway a student took towards graduation. 

The scores themselves are saved into the StudentGraduationAssessment table. 

You may also wish to explore the StudentGraduationInfo object.
