The Advisory tool is designed to help teachers target areas of improvement for the students they mentor. The first screen lists students with the number of assignments they have flagged as missing or late and the number of non-passing grades. Click a student to view more details in the student profile.

The Advisory tool helps teachers identify student needs.

Tool Rights

The Advisory tool can be enabled for teachers in two ways. Teachers need the Advisory tool right to access the tool.

In addition to the Advisory tool right, teachers with the Include Non-Advisory Sections subright can view the Advisory tool for all of their sections, regardless of whether the checkbox is marked on the course/section.

Section Summary View

In-Progress Grades

The In-Progress Grades section displays grades for the student's courses in the current term.

Grades and progress through standards are shown below the summary.

Above the grades, the GPA, Credits, and Graduation Progress are displayed.

Grades are listed by course. For grading tasks, the student's in-progress grade is shown for each task aligned to the course. For standards, a progress bar indicates the percentage of standards aligned to the course for which the student has a posted grade.

Click on a grade for a grading task to view a list of assignments and scores. Click the progress bar for a standard to view the standards for the course and the student's proficiency for each, whether in-progress or posted.


The Attendance section can be filtered to show attendance totals for the year, the last 30 days, or the last 7 days. The total number of full day and period absences and of tardies display above the calendar. Full day absences are calculated using the whole/half day minutes entered on the calendar and do not follow state-specific attendance calculations.

Filter the calendar view by full day absences, period absences, or tardies. When filtered by absences, days are color-coded by excuse.

Attendance events display in the calendar and are color-coded.

Click an attendance event to view more information. If attendance letters have been sent to the student, a list of when letters were sent is shown. Letters cannot be viewed or generated from this tool.
