Multiple GPA calculations for same term?
I just finished storing grades, and running honor roll and class ranking for our seniors yesterday morning. Now I have a request ("just to see what happens") to run a second honor roll and class ranking for seniors that excludes PE and Fine Arts courses. I know this is possible, but where would I put it? I have the usual Honor Roll calculation that goes into Store Code S2 and a second one for seniors called "High Honors" that goes into Store Code Y1. If I ran a 3rd calculation, I don't know where to store it. Does anyone do multiple honor rolls that exclude specific courses? If so, where do you store it? Thanks!

Where do you put it? You could use any code you want for the store code.... Z1, P2, 2H (for 2nd HR), etc. It is just a code you specify, which is used later to determine what records you pull when you run the HR report. The code has nothing to do with any term codes used in Final Grade Setup. This only addresses storing the HR records.

To me, the big question would be how do you ignore the PE & Fine Arts grades in the GPA calculation. I don't see that as your question, so if you have that figured out, there is no need for me to ramble on.  :)

   
Thanks, Wayne. I didn't realize I could create any kind of storage code.  That makes sense. So if I run Honor Roll and Class Ranking from this GPA calculation, I'll still be able to store each one into a specific storage code. 

Your big question has me worried. ;-) Looking at the options under GPA Calculations Method, you can list grade levels, school years and credit types. I'm assuming I can just list the credit types I want to include. Guess I'll find out ...  ;-)
