At this time only the Calculation type (Year vs. Marking Period), Calculation method, (Total Points, Percentages, Total Points with Weight), and the number of Decimal Points that show to students and parents can be set as a default for an entire grade level. To edit these defaults:
 
  1. Go to Academics > Grades > Grading Setup > Gradebook Settings 
  2. Scroll down to the Default Gradebook Settings section 
  3. Click the 3 dot button to the left of the desired school level
  4. Click Edit Defaults
  5. Set each default to the desired setting
  6. Click Save

Teachers will still need to go into their gradebooks and set up all other information such as the assignment types used and any weights.
