A Kickboard Marking Period is a set period of time that allows you to easily monitor a student's progress, and are key for running certain student reports.
You can edit your school's Marking Periods by going to the top right of the page, Settings->Site and School Settings->Marking Periods.
- The start date of your first Marking Period and the end date of your last Marking Period should match the School Year start and end dates.
- There should not be any gaps between each Marking Period. Any data entered before or between a marking period will not count. Avoiding gaps will help you avoid data accidentally being lost.
- Unlike School Year, Marking Periods can be different for each school.
- There are no restrictions to the number of Marking Periods you can have. You can set it up to best match your school's needs (quarters, trimesters, summer school etc).
