If you have a teacher web page where you enter homework assignments, you should still include a link to your web site in in the Decription box under the Class Content tab in your Gradebook. The instructions for doing this are below.
This blog will discuss entering homework assignments in the Powerteacher Gradebook Class Content.
Select the class you want to enter information for, click on the Class Content tab in Gradebook, and type your assignments in the Description box.
Self Contained Classes - You should probably list homework for all subjects under your Homeroom. This will save parents from accessing each subject to see all of their child's homework.
For all other classes, like Middle School, homework assignments should be listed under the subjects.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Description box is like a blackboard. Anything entered there will remain there until you remove it. This includes information entered in PREVIOUS YEARS. You should perform a Quick Lookup on one student from each of your classes to see if any old and confusing information appears in the Section Description.
The image below shows a screen accessed on Oct. 18, 2011. However, the information in the description was for April 2011.
If you see old information, simply go to your Gradebook and enter something relevant in the Description box under the Class Content tab.
