Viewing and Editing Grades

The Gradebook is available to all students and will list their grades that have been recorded. The entire Gradebook as well as individual grade columns can be hidden from students' view. Each assessment activity will have a column in the Gradebook. These columns as well as the Course total column can be hidden and released at the discretion of the instructor.

The Course total grade should be set to the aggregation method: Weighted mean of grades. Go to Assigning Weights to Grade Items documentation page for more information.

The default Maximum mark is 100 and grades are set to display two decimal places. This applies to the assessment activity and to its associated column in the grade book. 

View Gradebook

  1. To view the Gradebook, click Grades in the top row to launch the Gradebook.

The Gradebook will display by default the Grader report layout that displays all course grades in a spreadsheet format. 

A horizontal and vertical scrollbar is displayed at the bottom and top of the spreadsheet whenever the grade columns do not fit within the page. This navigational functionality allows for smooth and scrolling through grades while student names remain static. From here, grades can be analyzed or updated. 

Updates to grades should be made by navigating to the course homepage and click on the activities (assignment, journal, forum, etc.). Only offline activities grades should be updated in the Gradebook.

Grades updated directly in the Gradebook will not be updated in the activities and will become locked. Students would then see different grades for course activities. 

The average grade of each assessment item is displayed along the bottom of the report. Grades in each column can be sorted. Each assessment item in the Gradebook can be accessed by clicking on its title.

Entire grade columns can be hidden and released manually by the instructor or triggered by a release date. Individual student grades can also be hidden and released in the same manner.
