Nevertheless, the fake grades were entered into the gradebook from manipulated overlays. And the process that was used is actually shown in the screenshots I recorded [Editor’s note: These are shown in this series’ Parts 8, 9 and 10].
It’s the reason why there are so many tests on top of each other. It’s also why the tests on top of each other have the students’ names down the left side of the test in the grade book and also down the middle of the page.
The process explains why everything is not stacked evenly: When putting lots of grades into the grade boxes, the administrators’ crew had to frequently move
The process explains why everything is not stacked evenly: When putting lots of grades into the grade boxes, the administrators’ crew had to frequently move over to the side the overlays from which they’re getting the bogus grades. Also, when changing grades for an entire class — with 15 tests on top of each transparent page — it’s faster when the students are all being given the same grades. Which explains what you’ll see in many of the test-file-overlay screenshots: all students getting four out of four right, all students getting eight out of eight right, all students getting 11 out of 11, etc.
I was unable to find copies of any final tests that, supposedly, were given and thus, supposedly, were the sources of many of the grades that were entered into Infinite Campus during his absence.
This supports what my second-grade chair said: that Treem admin, increasingly finding their grade-falsification project much more burdensome than they’d expected, had, finally, simply resorted to wholesale insertion of faked grades.
