- NOTE: A recent change to the Grade tab in JumpRope now requires that you explicitly share your units with the related courses before you can enter scores. This change was made in order to help ensure that the correct course is selected while grades are being entered so that scores appear under the desired course on progress reports. We apologize for the inconvenience, but the information below is important to know as you set up your units and enter scores. See below (adding a unit) for the quick fix.
Often - especially in middle and high school where you teach multiple sections of the same course - you may want to use the same units, standards, or assessments with multiple classes. JumpRope has two ways to do this: Cloning and Sharing.
Adding a Unit to a Course
In certain circumstances, you may wish to share a unit with more than one course such that they are actually identical and will not get off pace. If you share a unit with more than one course instead of cloning it, any changes made to the unit will affect all of the shared courses and you cannot edit the courses independently. Don't say that we didn't warn you! If you must add an assessment that affects some courses but not all on a shared unit, you can leave the related scores blank for the students/courses that are exempt and it will not affect overall scores or show up on reports.
To share a unit, first edit the unit and select the Courses drop-down menu at the top. Then, check off the courses that you'd like to share the course with and click Save:
Cloning a Unit into Multiple Courses
Most of the time when you are creating new units, cloning is the right choice. Cloning creates a new copy of a unit for each class, allowing you to edit them separately (i.e. adding the dates can differ slightly if you get off pace). If there is a chance that your courses will get "off pace" and dates matter to you, you will want to create a unit once and clone it into each of your courses. To clone a unit, access the Plan tab and Edit the unit that you would like to clone.  click clone,  give it a name that references the class section you're cloning for (to help stay organized),  select the class/section you're cloning into, and  choose whether or not to includes assessments and dates (Clone Everything is the common choice):
