Adding Grade Overrides from Grader Report

Grading from the Grader Report

  • The grader report is the main overview of the grade book, it shows all grades and assignments in a spreadsheet, and students can easily access it to view their grades. 
  • You can access Gradebook setup and different report views from the Grader Report page.

To add grades directly into the grader report, Editing needs to be turned on (button is in the top right hand corner.) Once Editing is turned on, each cell in the grid will have one or two entries boxes depending on how your grade-book is set up. The box to the left surrounded by a solid border line is for the grade, the second box with a dashed border line is for feedback.

In most sites, grades are saved automatically as they are entered but the page might need to be refreshed to see the Course Total update with the new grades. In some sites, there will be a Save button in the bottom left hand corner of the page.
