Entering Grades

Assignment grades can be entered by assignment or by student. Online Tests can also be linked to an assignment; when the test is graded the assignment grade will automatically be entered. Grades may be entered for Officially Registered students only.

    Note: If the instructor checks the Show Withdrawn Students box, students who have withdrawn will be displayed. Place a check next to Show Student ID to display the ID next to the Student Name.

The Adjusted Score % (percentage the student earned for the assignment based on the Original Score entered divided by the Total Points of the assignment) and Letter Grade will be automatically filled in. You can override the entries by manually changing them. The Adjusted Score and the Assignment Weight affect the points earned. The points earned are used in Midterm and Final grade calculations.
