Do you want to check your grades on PowerSchool? If you really want to know about checking your grades, you have to read this text until the end. Here we are going to share information about checking your PowerSchool grades.

How to check your grades in your classes?

To check grades as a Student or Parent, you are able to go to the Grades tab in any of your classes and then select Gradebooks.

In the Grades view, you are going to see all your currently published grades for the class. At the top level of the page is going to be a Term grade for the class. Beneath the Term, you are able to see each Grading Period, including the total grade for each period. Next to each Grading Period is a percentage that represents the Weight of the grading period. In this case, grades within the first Grading Period are worth 50 percent of the total term grade, while grades within the second Grading Period are worth 50 percent. If you do not see a percentage or letter grade displayed for a Grading Period or Term, it means that your teacher may not have published these grades yet. They will need to release these grades for viewing before you are able to see them.

As a Parent, if you have some students in a class, you are able to use the drop down list at the top of the Grades view to switch between each student’s grades.

Categories and Grades

To see individual assignment grades, you are able to click on a Grading Period to expand it. Grades are going to be organized under Categories, and directly next to each Category you will see its weight. In this case, the grades received for the Class Activities category create up to 20 percent of the final grade. While the grades received in the Homework category create up 20 percent. Under the Percent column for each category you are able to see the cumulative score for items in that category.

Categories and Grades

Grades are going to be listed under their respective Categories with the dated items, ordered from the oldest due date to the most recent. The grades without due dates are  going to be displayed below, sorted alphabetically. For each Gradebook Item, you are going to see the name of the item (that sometimes will be able to link directly to the graded item), the Due Date, if the item has one, the score in Points, the score in Percent, and the Letter Grade, if your teacher has already selected to display letter grades in the Gradebook. If not, you are only going to see the score in Percent and Points for each assignment.
