Note: As of July 9, 2018, Blackbaud's School Management solutions (which include Core, onBoard, onCampus, onMessage, and onRecord) are utilizing a new top level navigation. This primarily affects users performing administrative tasks-constituent navigation for most parents, students, faculty, and alumni will remain the same. We appreciate your patience as we work to update our documentation. If you are seeing this message, the content of this solution is still being vetted for possible updates. Please refer to this mapping document if you need assistance finding a task in the new navigation.
When generating Academic Performance you may get the following error message: One or more Subcategories for this Academic Performance Category does not have a Grade Average selected or grade comparisons for the chosen term and grade level. Click on the link below to return to Academic Performance and select criteria by which to search for this term and grade level.
The reason this is happening, for example, is if you have the Academic Performance Category Description listed as Honor Roll and then within Honor Roll you have subcategories as Q1, Q2 , Q3, Q4. When you try to run the Honor Roll for Q2, it will give you the error referenced above. This is because the subcategory with the lowest priority has the highest standards, so any student that falls into the subcategory with the lowest priority will no longer be eligible for subcategories with higher priorities.
If you have a Category Description listed as Honor Roll and then Honor Roll was broken out into 3 levels: High Honors, Honor Roll, and Honorable mention, then there would be 3 subcategories within the Category Description of Honor Roll. This is the correct way to set up Academic Performance because if User makes High Honors, they would no longer be eligible for Honor Role or Honorable mention, if a User makes Honor Role, they would no longer be eligible for Honorable mention. This is the way Academic Performance is set to run.
