Click the tabs to toggle between My Comments and District Comments.

Add A Comment to My Comments

  1. On the main navigation menu, select Settings, and then choose Comment Bank.
  2. Click the My Comments tab.
  3. Click Add.
  4. Enter a comment Code and Category.
  5. By default, Favorite is selected to mark this comment as a favorite. Clear the selection to remove this comment from your list of favorites.
  6. Enter the text of the comment. Choose a Smart Text option to insert a name or pronoun into the comment's context.

    Smart text options allow you to add names or pronouns to the context of the general comments, which personalizes comments for each student. For example, "<first name> listens well in class. <He/She> participates in class discussions" will display as "Kate listens well in class. She participates in class discussions."

  7. Review the applied smart text for accuracy and make any needed changes before proceeding.
  8. Click Save. The changes or additions appear in the Comment Bank on the Score Inspector.
    • To modify a comment, click Edit.
    • To remove a comment, click Edit, then click Delete.

On the My Comments or District Comments tab, click on the star to mark a comment as a favorite. Favorite comments appear at the top of the comment list on the Score Inspector.

Import Comments from PowerTeacher Gradebook

If you previously used PowerTeacher Gradebook, you can import the personal comments without manually entering them in PowerTeacher Pro.

Before you add comments to My Comments in PowerTeacher Pro, you can perform a one-time migration of your PowerTeacher Gradebook comments to PowerTeacher Pro. If you have already created comments in PowerTeacher Pro but would like to migrate your PowerTeacher Gradebook comments, delete the comments in PowerTeacher Pro to access the PowerTeacher Gradebook migration option.

On the Comment Bank page, click Import my PTG Comments.
