Adding Grade Items
Last modified on 14 September 2022 01:50 PM

Whenever you add a Quiz or Assignment Activity to your course and specify a grade in its settings, a grade column will appear in the gradebook. This article will explain how to manually add a grade item that is not tied to an Activity - for example when you grade a Mid-term quiz outside eClass or assign a participation grade -- and want to use the system to display the grades to individual students.

  1. Go to the Grade administration page by clicking on Grades in the navigation panel, near the top left corner of the page.

  2. Alternatively, to access the Grade administration page, you can also click on the gear icon on your course main page, then select Gradebook setup.

  3. Once you are on the Grade administration page, make sure you are in the Gradebook setup tab, under the Setup tab. Scroll down and click on Add grade item.

  4. Type in a name and a value for your grade item. Then, click on Save changes when you are done. 


  5. A new column containing your grade item will appear in your gradebook. Now, to manually input grades, click on Turn Editing On on the top, right-hand side.

  6. Once you have turned on editing, you can manually input the student's grades in the text entry boxes in the column. The 'Tab' key can be used to move to the next student. When you are finished, click on Save changes on the bottom of the page.
