How do I enter and edit grades in the Gradebook?

Most likely you will access SpeedGrader to enter grades. The grades will appear in the Gradebook when you are done. However, you can manually enter and edit grades in the Gradebook.

Assignments in the Gradebook are always shown with the assignment’s point value. However, you can change the assignment to display grades for a specific grading type.

You can also use a CSV file to import grades.

When an assignment score is entered as a letter grade in the Gradebook, the percentage score for the assignment is the upper limit of the range assigned to that letter grade in the grading scheme. If a final grade override is entered as a letter grade, the percentage score for the assignment is the lower limit of the range assigned to that letter grade in the grading scheme.

For example, your course grading scheme may designate a range of 86% to 89% for a B+ letter grade. Entering a B+ for an assignment would assign a percentage of 89% but entering a B+ for a final grade override would assign a percentage of 86%. To ensure students receive a specific percentage for an assignment or final grade, enter the assignment score or grade override as a percentage.

Notes:

  • When using differentiated assignments, the assignment appears as a column for all students, but grade cells are grayed out for students who are not part of the assignment or an assigned section. Grades cannot be assigned to students who are not part of the assignment or section; those assignments are not factored into overall grades.
  • If you unassign a student or section to a differentiated assignment you have previously graded, the grade and submission are removed from the assignment. You can restore the submission by reassigning the assignment to the student.
  • When Multiple Grading Periods are enabled in a course, you cannot edit grades for any assignment that has at least one student in a closed grading period.
  • The Gradebook History page records all grade changes in the Gradebook and can be accessed at any time.
