How do I add comment lists to report cards?

In SchoolInsight, district or school admins can create comment lists for use on progress reports and report cards. These lists allow instructors to choose comments from a list instead of typing them one at a time. This allows the school to have a meaningful and streamlined communication with parents. Choosing comments from a populated list also saves time for instructors. These comment list types are referred to as progress report lists.

  1. Go to SD Admin Main > Options > Comment Lists > Create New Comment List
  2. Give the comment list a Title
  3. Save and Add Comments
  4. Enter a comment Description
  5. Save or Save and Add More

School Admins can create a comment list on a report card item. The item’s type should be Standards-based Grades or Give Letter Grade, Score and/or Comments. For more information on the different report card item types, please click here.
