Increase Speed with Turbo Mode

Choose either Standard or Turbo Mode to automatically save scores as you enter them into your gradebook. Standard Mode is the default mode that both saves grades to the cloud as they're entered and simultaneously updates averages. Turbo Mode automatically saves grades as they're entered only.

To enable Turbo Mode, do the following:

  1. Click Settings at the upper-right corner of TeacherPlus to display the Settings dialog box.
  2. In the Score Options area, click one of the following options:
    • TURBO: In this mode, scores are saved as you type them, but averages are not calculated until you click Save and Recalculate at the upper-right corner of TeacherPlus.

      Turbo Mode is automatically used when you enter scores for a Score column that's not counting in averages. (When you share the column, averages are automatically calculated.) If you set new Score columns not to count in averages when you create them, it will be really fast to enter scores without having to manually turn on Turbo Mode.

    • SUPER TURBO: This mode provides greater performance than the TURBO option, but scores are not saved as you type them nor are averages calculated. To save the scores and calculate the averages, click Save and Recalculate at the upper-right corner of TeacherPlus.
      Turbo Mode Dialog Box

      Considering that student scores are not automatically saved in Super Turbo Mode, use this mode only if necessary. If using this mode, remember to click Save at the upper-right corner of TeacherPlus to save students' scores.

  3. Click OK.

Regardless of which Turbo Mode is turned on, marking period and semester and final averages are not automatically recalculated when new scores are entered (only possible in Standard Mode). Remember that in order to recalculate averages, you must click Save and Recalculate at the upper-right corner of TeacherPlus.
