Gradebook Navigation - Items List and Student Grid

Grade Book: Gradable items list & Student grid

The Gradable Items list is your default view of the course gradebook. You can view all the coursework you've assigned and your grading progress. You can also access the management functions.

You can switch to the Students tab to view an overall picture of each student’s engagement. mceclip2.png

Check your progress. See how many submissions you need to grade and grades you have to post. Complete indicates you have no outstanding grading tasks for that item. All graded appears when all submitted attempts are graded and posted, but some students haven't submitted work yet and don't have grades.

Manage grades. Open an item's menu to access the management functions, such as Edit and Delete.

Add a row. Select the plus sign wherever you want to add a row:

  • Add Item: Add a row for coursework, such as a participation grade. Your title is limited to 255 characters. Choose the grade unit, such as points or letter.
  • Add Calculation: Add a row for a calculation, such as an average assignments grade.
  • Add Attendance: Add a row for attendance. After you add attendance, the add option won't appear in the menu again.
