  • It means that the grade has not been posted in the gradebook!An * does NOT affect the averageA “zero” DOES affect the averageSkyward makes it missing 5 days after the due date.
  • Check the due date first!If it’s only been a few days, then the teacher may need to grade assignment.If it’s been quite a while, 1 or 2 weeks, then question your child about the assignment.
  • Please keep in the mind the length of time that may be needed to grade an assignment.For example, a research paper will take longer to grade and record than a worksheet might!
  • Many teachers enter a 0 for a missing assignment rather than leaving it as an * so the resulting student average reflects the actual grade in the event the assignment is not completed and/or turned in!Once the assignment is turned in and graded, the 0 will be changed to the actual grade if the work was made up within the time allowed by the teacher!
  • Not all teachers choose to use codes for assignments in Skyward, but these are available.
