Gradebook Organization

The Gradebook is organized into three sections:  “Assignments,” “Grades & Performance,” and “Activity and Notifications.”

 

Assignments Section

The Assignments section displays an interactive list of all assignments in your course.

You can sort this list by lesson, due date, completion, publication status, and creation date. Searching for a specific assignment is easy with the search tool.

Click on an assignment within the list to view specific learner activity. You can sort the list of students by name, completion, score, and feedback by selecting that column’s title. You can also filter by enrolled and open students, and search for specific learners by name by clicking the enrolled/open student dropdown.

Click “View Assignment” to view or practice the assignment. If the assignment included a file upload, a download files button will be available to you to download all learner files to your computer.

You can also “Edit Assignment” as well as change the due date.

Note: When more than 50 learners are in the course, learners are filtered by page in the Gradebook. To display more learners per page, click the gear icon located in the upper right-hand corner.

 

Grades & Performance Section

The Grades & Performance section displays an interactive list of all learners in your course.

This section allows you to view a detailed list of “All Students,” “Enrolled,” or “Open.” You also have the option to sort learners by their assignment status (actionable items, overdue items, and ungraded items) by using the top dropdown.

Click on the email icon to email the course or a subset of learners. Click on the download button to export course grades.

Clicking on a learner from this view allows you to view that learner’s assignment submissions and grades. You can sort the learner’s assignments by name, completion status, score, and feedback. Grade any assignment by clicking in the score column, and excuse or reset a grade using the dropdown. View the learner’s “Profile,” or click on “Email” to email the learner. Click on a specific assignment to view the student’s work.

Assignment notifications are organized by date, with the most recent activities near the top of the stream. Clicking on a notification will navigate you to that activity.

Warning: Due to the large amount of activity generated in instructor accounts, learner submission notifications will only appear in the Activity & Notifications section of the Gradebook and will not appear in your general notifications located within the bell icon in the upper right-hand corner of your account. Learners, however, will continue to receive important notifications such as feedback or an assigned grade in both streams.
