Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year! This article outlines reminders and updates important for Forefront users this fall, and is a follow-up to this linked webinar held August 15, 2023.
3 Things From Last Year We Want to Make Sure You Know
While the following features are not all new, they are each worthy of note.
Bridges Printable Progress Reports and Math Domain Reports
Forefront’s Printable Documents feature is a great resource available for both Basic and Premium subscription plans. Specific to Bridges this year is an update to their unit letters and math domain reports.
Autopopulate Data in the Data-Entry Spreadsheet
Autopopulate a spreadsheet or task with the maximum point value and then modify individual cells or student rows to expedite data entry. To autopopulate the entire spreadsheet, select the three dots in the upper right-hand corner of the data entry view and select “Set empty scores to max.”
If you wish to just set the score to max for a specific question or task, right-click on the item number and select “Set empty scores to max.”
To set scores to max by student, or reset the row data, right click the student name and select the relevant menu option.
Forefront Supports Multi-Subjects (Premium)
