To enter grades and credfits transferred from previous schools, go to the Students tab. On the right, access the "Transfer History" function. This will allow you to easily enter courses and grades a student received from a prior school. The courses and grades entered there will reflect onto the transcript.
Important: Contact ThinkWave to launch a custom transcript for you in order to show transfer grades entered from the Students tab (the default transcript displays transfer grades entered into rolled-back years, as described below).
If most of the courses a student took were in your school, not another school, you may consider rolling back the ThinkWave datafile to previous years to input archive data. Some of our schools have rolled back 20 years and more. We do not charge extra for students from previous years.
In order to roll back data, first, set up your classes and students in the current year to the fullest extent you can (setting up the current year to the fullest extent makes the roll back function more helpful because more data is copied in the rollover, and therefore less data needs to be re-entered into past years). Then go to Setup | Rollover. Choose the Rollback function and complete the rollover. Then, enter previous years' grades. The student ID (which is automatically copied in the Rollover) connects the student data from year to year, so therefore, a full transcript can be printed.
