Amy T. Parlo
Purpose: Gradespeed is the online grading system used by DoDEA. All teachers in DoDEA are required
to use GS for these purposes. Tutorials currently exist only in print form. DoDEA specific training needs
with GS to include:

 How to log in
 Creating a desktop icon
 Navigating the portal
 Establishing grade categories and weights
 Accessing student data and schedules
 Generating reports
 Accessing and printing rosters
 Creating seating charts
 Verifying grades at the end of grading periods
This RLO will, for the purposes of this class, be limited to accessing student data and schedules.

Terminal Objective: This RLO, will address one of the five planned objectives for the course.
Terminal Objective IV: Within the Gradespeed portal, the learner will access student information and
Enabling Objectives: The Enabling Objectives for this Terminal Objective are:

 Enabling Objective I: In the GS portal, the learner will navigate to a student data page
and identify student and parent information.
 Enabling Objective II: In the GS portal, the learner will pull up a student schedule.

Target Audience: This learning module has been designed for teachers new to DoDEA and those
returning that may need remediation.

Scenario: This learning module will be offered digitally and asynchronously during the inservice week
preceding the start of the school year to ensure appropriate and effective teacher use of Gradespeed in
accordance with DoDEA guidelines. Training modules will be self-paced, self-selected, and self-guided
based on learner needs.
