What is Gradebook?

Gradebook is a core tool for instructors to calculate and store grade information and distribute it to students online. In Gradebook students can view their scores for all items; view their course grades, once an instructor releases them; and sort their items by title, due date, grade, and weight, where applicable.

To access this tool, select Gradebook from the Tool Menu of your site.

Using Gradebook, instructors can:

  • Auto-calculate course grades, with the ability to override any course grade.
  • Define course letter grades based on a 100% scale.
  • Choose between point- or percentage-based grading.
  • Add gradebook items for manually graded or offline activities.
  • Create categories to organize items and allow for weighting of grades.
  • Enter, view, edit, and release to students scores, grades, and comments.
  • Collect and display scores from tools such as Tests & Quizzes, Assignments, and Forums.
  • Export scores and grades to Microsoft Excel (in CSV format).
  • Import item scores from spreadsheet (CSV) files.
  • Export a printer-friendly (PDF) version of individual student grades.
  • Drop grades or keep the highest grades in a category.
  • Specify items or categories as extra credit.

Gradebook is section and group aware, so teaching assistants can see grades only for students in their assigned sections or groups.
