Terms

How to Enter and/or Edit date ranges for existing Terms

It is important to know that for consecutive terms (like Trimester 1, Trimester 2, and Trimester 3 for example), there can't be any gaps between terms. Therefore, the beginning of the second term has to be the very next day after the end of the first term, and the beginning of the third term has to be the very next day after the end of the second term.

Under Data Tab:

• Click on the year.

• Click on Year Info.

• Click on the name 'New term' to edit the name. Term codes are needed for SECT purposes only so, chances are, you do not need to enter a code at all.

• Click on the Done button.

• Type in the beginning and end date for the new term you just created.

• Hit Save Changes button.

Important Note: The term you just created in the current year will also be listed for previous years. If that term is used for previous years data as well, you will need to set date ranges in the previous years too.
