What is Gradebook?

Gradebook, accessed via Grades in the course menu, is the Instructors view for all students grades. Instructors can view the whole cohort’s grades, or filter by section. Students view of grades, will only display their own grades.

  • Manually enter student grades
  • Automatically calculate total and final grades
  • Hide grades from students until they are published
  • Download or upload (import/export) Grades as a CSV file
  • Download assignment submissions for offline marking
  • Message students who haven’t submitted an assignment yet, or who scored more than X or less than Y on an assignment
  • Leave private grading feedback for students
  • Excuse an assignment, discussion, or quiz for a student

Watch the video below for an overview of the Gradebook interface and functionality.
