Gradebook Won't Save an Assignment

The Fix!

The new version of Gradebook associated with PowerSchool 5.2 doesn't automatically truncate the Assignment Abbreviation to 15 characters. Shorten the abbreviation to less than 15 characters including spaces and re submit.

From PowerSchool:

System Error When Creating an Assignment in PowerTeacher Gradebook


When creating an Assignment in PowerTeacher Gradebook, the following message shows:

"Encountered a system error--contact system administrator"

The details tab displays:

java.sql.SQLException: ORA-12899: value too large for column "PS"."PGASSIGNMENTS"."ABBREVIATION" (actual: 16, maximum: 15)

The maximum characters for an assignment abbreviation is 15.


Create an Assignment Abbreviation with 15 or less characters.
