Save Grades Versus Publish Progress Reports
As scores are entered in the gradebook, you'll want to save grades periodically. Saving grades ensure that your work won't be lost, but it doesn't allow students and parents to view those grades. Publishing progress reports is a separate action you must take to share grades with your students and their parents. This two step process (save and publish) allows you to control which grades students and parents can see and when they may see them.
How to Publish Progress Reports
1) Look for the orange Progress Report Publishing button on the right side of the main gradebook spreadsheet.
2) Check the box for the assignments you wish to include in the progress report before clicking the Publish button.
