Configure Term Definitions
Choose from the default term definitions of 4 Quarter, 6 Term, 3 Trimester, or customize your own unique term definitions. The MMS term definition scheme allows the combination of different term configurations in the same database. For example, a single school with grades 6 through 12 can set up 4-quarter term definitions for the high school grades and 6-term definitions for the middle school grades. MMS can accommodate almost any combination of term patterns.
