Create a New Class

Class Action offers two methods of creating classes, “New” and “New Grading Period.”

If a similar class does not exist, use the “New” command in the File Menu. This technique is described in detail in the section Creating Your First Class.

If a similar class already exists, or if you are carrying an existing class into a new grading period, it will be easier to use the “New Grading Period” command in the File Menu. See How To Begin a New Grading Period.

Using the “New Grading Period”

If you have several similar classes, create the first class using the “New” command as described in the “Setting Up Your First Class” section. Then use the “New Grading Period” command to set up the rest of your classes.

When you choose “New Grading Period” from the File Menu, you will see the following dialog.


The check boxes “Student Name” and “Grade Totals” are used for beginning a new grading period with an existing class. They are explained in the section “Begin a New Grading Period.”

The check box “Assignments” can save you time if your class's assignments are already set up. Points are not carried forward because they would affect grade calculation.
