Using Oncourse Gradebook, how do I make grades available to students?

Note: To complete these procedures, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. To determine your role, follow the directions in Participant roles. To view a list of permissions associated with a given role, see Permissions, roles, and tools. For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and roles: Overview.

The Gradebook allows you to control whether or not students can see individual Gradebook items, as well as cumulative course grades.

Displaying individual Gradebook items to students

To display individual Gradebook items to students:

  1. From the menubar, click Gradebook.

  2. At the top, click Gradebook Setup.

  3. Under "Gradebook Items Display", check the box next to Display released Gradebook Items to students, and then click Save Changes.

    Gradebook items will be visible to students when you release them. To release an individual Gradebook item, when creating or editing the item, check Release this item to Students. For more, see Adding, editing, or deleting a Gradebook item. (If you check this box before entering grades, grades will be visible to students when you enter them and click Save Changes; see Entering or editing grades.)

    For calculated (points or percentage) gradebooks, if you leave the Include this item in course grade calculation box unchecked while creating or editing the item, students will see their grades for that item in parentheses to indicate that it is excluded from the course grade.

Displaying course grades to students

By default course grades are not displayed to students. To display them to students:

  1. From the menubar, click Gradebook.

  2. At the top, click Course Grade Options.

  3. Under "Grade Display", check the box next to Display course grade to students now, and then click Save.

    The course grade will be visible to students. To specify that a Gradebook item should be counted toward the course grade, you need to check Include this item in course grade calculations when creating the item. For more, see Adding, editing, or deleting a Gradebook item.

Note: Letter grades in Gradebook are referred to as non-calculating grades. Non-calculating grades may be any string of text up to eight characters. If you want your grades calculated automatically, you must enter them as either points or percentages. See Changing the grade entry, type, and scale in Gradebook.
