ARCHIVED: Using Oncourse Gradebook, how do I enter or edit grades?

Important:
Oncourse is retired. For details, see About the Oncourse retirement.
Note:
To complete these procedures, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. If you're not sure what your role is, see the "Role" column in the Roster tool. For permissions, see ARCHIVED: What can I do in read-only Oncourse?
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 ARCHIVED: Changing the grade entry, type, and scale in Gradebook.

Entering grades

Note:
If you use the Add to Gradebook option in Forums or Tests & Surveys, you must enter grades via that tool rather than Gradebook. However, with Assignments, you can enter grades via either Assignments or Gradebook.

To enter grades for items in Gradebook:

  1. In your site's menubar, click Gradebook. If you are not already on the main page of the Gradebook tool, click Gradebook Items or the reset button ( Return to top page of this tool ) to the left of the tool name.
  2. Click the title of the Gradebook item for which you want to enter grades.
    Note:
    To change the number of students displayed, use the Show drop-down list. To display specific groups or sections of students, use the View drop-down list.
  3. A list of students will appear, with an entry box in the "Grade" column. Enter each student's grade for the item into the appropriate box. Scores for point and percentage Gradebook items must be greater than or equal to zero, and may contain up to two decimal places. For non-calculating items, grades may be any text string up to eight characters. You may leave a box blank if necessary. (Blank entries will affect course grades differently than zeroes; see ARCHIVED: Course grade calculations.)
  4. To add comments for students, click Edit Comments. Type your comments in the text box.
  5. When you are finished, click Save Changes. A grade history log indicating the date entered, the grade, and the submitter is created for each score. Click the Log icon to view the details for an entry.

Editing grades

Note:
Scores submitted via external tools such as Forums and Tests & Surveys cannot be edited in Gradebook. These scores must be changed in the source tools. However, scores submitted via Assignments can be edited in either Assignments or Gradebook.

To edit existing grades in Gradebook:

  1. In your site's menubar, click Gradebook. If you are not already on the main page of the Gradebook tool, click Gradebook Items or the reset button ( Return to top page of this tool ) to the left of the tool name.
  2. Click the title of the Gradebook item for which you want to edit grades.
  3. Current grades for individual students for this particular item will appear in editable fields following each name. To edit a grade for a student, change the grade in the appropriate field.
  4. To add comments for students, click Edit Comments. Type your comments in the text box.
  5. When you are finished, click Save Changes. The grade history log will record the date of each grade change, the updated grade, and the name of the user who made the change. Click the Log icon to view the details for an entry.
