Using Oncourse Gradebook, how do I view grades?

View feature demonstrations relevant to this topic.

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.

In Gradebook, both students and instructors can view grades.

Note: If you do not use a supported browser, you may not be able to see the titles of Gradebook items; see Which browser should I use?

Students

When you enter Gradebook, depending on what information your instructor has made available, you will see one or both of the following:

  • Course Grade: The course grade is a cumulative grade based on items you have completed. Any items you have not completed are not included in the course grade calculation unless your instructor has explicitly assigned zeroes to those items. A grade percentage appears in parentheses and shows the actual percentage derived from completed items.

  • Gradebook Items: The list of Gradebook items shows each item name, its due date (if applicable), your grade, and any comments associated with the grade.

Instructors

Setting score display options

Instructors can choose to make individual Gradebook items visible or invisible to students, and can also choose whether to display a cumulative course grade for calculated grade types. See Making grades available to students.

Viewing grades

When you enter Gradebook, you will see a list of individual Gradebook items and, for points or percentage gradebooks, an average course grade for the class. You can view scores using one of the following options.

Note: When viewing grades in tables, you can sort on many of the columns; click the column heading by which you want to sort the table. Subsequently clicking the same column heading will switch the sorting order between ascending and descending.

  • To see grades for individual Gradebook items: From the Gradebook Items page, click each item's title. You will see a list of your students with the grades you have assigned; in calculating Gradebook types, near the top of the page, you will see a class average for scores entered.

    To view grades by section or group, use the "View" drop-down list to select the section or group. Additionally, you can use the text box to search for individual students.

    By default, all students are visible. To display fewer students, in the drop-down list above the table on the right, change Show all to your desired option.

  • To see course grades: Near the top, click Course Grades. You will see a list of your students. In most calculating gradebooks, the points earned, the letter grade, and a percentage are displayed for each student. The letter grade and percentage are based on the items that have been completed. To include items that have not been completed in the course grade calculation, you must enter a zero (0) for each item. For non-calculating gradebooks, you will see a course grade only if you have assigned one manually; you can do so by entering a grade in the "Course Grade" column and clicking Save Changes.

    To view the course grade by section or group, use the "View" drop-down list to select the section or group. You can also use the text box to search for individual students.

    By default, all students are visible. To display fewer students, in the drop-down list above the table on the right, change Show all to your desired option.

  • To see both course grades and grades on individual items: Near the top, click All Grades. You will see a list of your students; for each student, you will see a grade value for each item in the Gradebook. The course grade is only shown as a percentage in this view and is based on the items that have been completed. To include items that have not been completed in the course grade calculation, you must enter a zero (0) for each item. For non-calculating gradebooks, a percentage will only appear in the "Course Grade" column if a grade has been assigned manually.

    To view the roster by section, group, or category, use the "View" drop-down list. Additionally, you can use the text box to search for individual students.

    By default, all students are visible. To display fewer students, in the drop-down list above the table on the right, change Show all to your desired option.
