What is Webgrades?
Royal Webgrades is a portal to an online grade book. Teachers enter scores for assignments and exams in their electronic grade books. Those scores are instantly available for viewing by students and parents/guardians via the world wide web. Royal students and parents/guardians can monitor exam grades, assignment grades, and overall course grades from computers or cell phones with internet access.
Where can students check Webgrades?
Students can use computers in the Royal High School Library to log in to Royal Webgrades before school, during lunch time, and after school on most school days. Students can also access Webgrades via the internet on personal computers and web-enabled cell phones outside of Royal High School.
Why does Royal offer Webgrades?
Webgrades facilitates the sharing of information between teachers, students, and parents. It allows students and parents to check on student progress in a course whenever they like. Webgrades also lets students send emails to their teachers immediately if they have any questions.
What information does Webgrades provide?
Webgrades shows student scores for assignments and exams. It also calculates a student’s overall course grade based on predetermined percentages or point totals designated by the teacher.
Important: Webgrades shows scores for assignments that have already been due in the past. In almost all cases, these are not items that can be made up or turned in late for any credit. Webgrades does not provide a list of upcoming assignments or due dates. Students should check their class notes, check classroom assignment boards, check class web pages, or ask teachers for information on current assignments and due dates.
What should students do with their Webgrades reports?
Each student should use webgrades to track his/her progress in a course. Webgrades lets you see how you have done on individual tests and assignments.
If you get a poor grade that you are not happy with, think about why you got that grade. Did you get a poor grade because you turned in an assignment that was incomplete? If so, be sure to use your agenda book to write down due dates and more details about what is expected for each assignment. Did you get a poor grade because you did not understand the material on the test? If this is the case, ask your teacher to clarify the things that you do not understand.
If you see that there is one category that is bringing your grade down in a course (unit exams, oral presentations, homework, ect.) ask your teacher for strategies on how to improve your performance in that category.
Remember: Your teachers are there to assist you. They want you to be successful in their class.
A new and improved version of Webgrades is now available to Royal High School students. You can log in once to see all of your grade reports in one place! Please see the instructions on the left hand menu for information on how to log on.
Important Notes: The transition to the new and improved Webgrades is still in process. While the majority of course reports are available now for your immediate viewing, some teachers' Webgrades are not yet online. In these select cases, please email your teacher for a grade report.
New features of Webgrades for students as well as Parent Webgrades are coming in the near future!
