DRAFT Updated Gradebook R2

Cómo usar la libreta de calificaciones


Open your Course Gradebook from the left menu of the course. You can grade assignments, tests/quizzes, and discussions directly in the Gradebook, and your students can view these grades under their Grades tab as you post them.

A set of menus is available in the top row of the Gradebook that give you flexible control over displaying content, creating new content, and setting various options.

1. Gradebook Menu



Switch among the following options:

  • Badges
  • Mastery
  • Attendance
    Note: Depending on the settings at your school, you may not have access to some of these options.

2. Grading Period Menu



In the Grading Period menu, select:

  • A single grading period to only display the items from that period.
  • All Grading Periods to view items for all periods.
    Sub-periods are nested beneath their main grading period.
  • Final/Midterm Material Grades to view items for which you have selected the Set as midterm/final check box in the item's Grading options.
  • No grading period for items that haven't been assigned a grading period.

3. Categories Menu



Filter the Gradebook to only show grade items that belong to a grading Category, which you define in your Grade Setup page.

4. View Menu

Select one or more options from the View menu to see additional information about the items in the gradebook.

Select Show Full Material Titles to expand the header row of your gradebook and show the entire title of each graded item.

You can also choose from a number of selections that will highlight cells in the gradebook that fit the selected criteria; the number to the right of each option indicates the total number of items matching the criteria.

  • Marked "Excused"
    Highlight all gradebook items that you've marked excused, indicated by a green hexagon in the table cell:

    In the image at the top of this article, for example, Justin Gonzalez's 8-point Energy Essay and 60-point Science in the... assignment are marked Excused.
  • Marked "Incomplete"
    Highlight all gradebook items that you've marked incomplete, indicated by a half-filled orange hexagon in the table cell:

    In the image at the top of this article, for example, Margaret Flores's 55 Point Group Assignment and 60-point Science in the... assignment are marked Incomplete.

Note: Items marked Incomplete register as blanks in the gradebook and are not factored into student grades; this is not the same as a Missing designation, which would count as a zero in the gradebook.

  • Graded With New Submission
    Highlight all graded items for which the student subsequently turned in another submission.
  • Ungraded
    Highlight all past-due gradebook items that still need a grade.
  • Unsubmitted
    Highlight all past-due items for which students still need to submit their work.
  • Material Factor of 0
    Highlight the columns of items with a factor of 0—that is, items that you don't want to be factored into student grades.

For example, selecting Ungraded from the menu adds a border around each cell in the gradebook that has not yet been given a grade:

5. Sort Materials Menu

Choose an option in the Sort Materials menu to select the order in which the grade item columns display:

  • Due Date, Ascending: Sort items from left to right with the earliest due dates displayed at the beginning of the gradebook and the most recent at the end.
  • Due Date, Descending: Sort items from left to right with items with the most recent due dates at the beginning of the gradebook and the earliest ones at the end.
  • Date Created, Ascending: Sort items from left to right with the earliest items you created displayed at the beginning of the gradebook and the most recent at the end.
  • Date Created, Descending: Sort items from left to right with the most recent items you created displayed at the beginning of the gradebook and the earliest ones at the end.

6. Add Item Button

Click the plus sign to create graded content directly from the Gradebook:

  • Tareas
  • Discussions
  • Test/Quizzes
  • Columna de calificaciones (no es necesario que haya material de un curso asociado)

7. Gradebook More Options Menu

Click the three vertical dots to access a menu of additional options for the gradebook:

  • Bulk Edit

Select Bulk Edit to view graded assignments, tests/quizzes, and discussions in a given course. For each graded item you can edit or delete the item's:

    • Name
    • Published/Unpublished status (the green dot in the second column)
    • Category
    • Max points available
    • Factor
    • Scale
    • Due date
    • Grading period
    • Desc. (Descripción)

Click the Save Changes button below the bulk editor to update your gradebook with the changes.

  • Print Grade Reports

Print the Grade Reports for students in your course.

  • Export

Choose from two formats in which to export your Gradebook:

    • As an XLS/CSV version of your Gradebook.
    • As an XLS/CSV file that you can use to import your gradebook into other systems.
  • Import

If the graded items in one course are the same as the graded items in another course, you can import grades from an XLS/CSV file; for example, when students change classes and their grades must be transferred to the new course.
Note: This is only available to Enterprise instructors.

Marking Exceptions

To mark items as Excused or Incomplete, hover your mouse pointer over the cell in the gradebook and click the flag that displays:

Adding Comments

To leave a comment:

  1. Hover your pointer over a cell and click the Comment icon:
  2. Type your message in the pop-up window that displays.

The comment icon displays for all cells to which you've added a comment.

Note: Comments and exceptions appear in the student grade report, which you can open from the Graph icon  to the right of the student's name. Comments for grading periods and the overall column also appear on student report cards unless you have selected the Hide overall grade from student reports and/or hide grading period grade from student reports check boxes in the course Grade Setup area.

Editing Grades

To edit grades directly from the gradebook, click in the cell and add the new grade. Grades automatically save when you modify a cell. You can also type any non-numeric character into a cell to assign a 0 for that grade. You can also use the tab or arrow keys to navigate the gradebook.

If a test or quiz is graded automatically, the grade will already display. If you change this grade, the override is indicated by an orange pencil in the lower-left corner:

Click the pencil to clear the override.

The Materials More Options menu displays in the header row of each graded item and provides additional options for assignments, tests, and discussions:

  • Track Revisions — Shows changes made to a student's grades for assignments or discussions.
    Note: Tests and quizzes do not have the Track Revisions menu option.
  • Set All Grades — Adds the same score for all of the grades for that item.
  • View Statistics — Shows statistics for the item. For example, highest and lowest grades, average score, and standard deviation.
  • Delete — Removes the assignment, test, or discussion from the course section. All grades for the item are also deleted.

Hiding Overall and Grading Period Columns from Students and Parents

Según lo que haya establecido en la sección Configuración de calificaciones finales de la página Configuración de calificaciones, puede elegir ocultar las calificaciones generales o las calificaciones del período de evaluación a los estudiantes y sus padres. En la sección Calificaciones calculadas automáticamente puede realizar lo siguiente:

  • Seleccione Ocultar calificación general en la libreta de calificaciones del estudiante si no desea que se muestre la columna Promedio general en las libretas de calificaciones del estudiante, o si desea ocultar las calificaciones generales del estudiante en los informes visualizados por los padres.
  • Seleccione Ocultar calificaciones del período de evaluación en los informes del estudiante si no desea que se muestren las columnas de Período de evaluación en las libretas de calificaciones de los estudiantes o si desea ocultar las calificaciones del estudiante correspondientes a los períodos de evaluación en los informes visualizados por los padres.

Adding a Custom Overall Grade Column

Desde la sección Configuración de calificaciones finales, puede además agregar una columna de calificaciones personalizada en la libreta de calificaciones. Active la casilla de verificación Agregar una columna de calificaciones generales personalizada en la sección Calificación general personalizada para agregar la columna personalizada junto a la columna Calificación general. Si habilita esta opción, su libreta de calificaciones mostrará tanto la columna de calificaciones generales personalizada como la columna de calificaciones generales calculadas.
Notas:

  • Los cambios realizados en la columna personalizada no afectan a la calificación calculada.
  • Las calificaciones de la columna personalizada se muestran en las libretas de calificaciones del estudiante y en los informes visualizados por los padres. Ni los padres ni los estudiantes pueden ver las calificaciones en la columna calculada.

Grading Groups

Course administrators may also use grading groups to associate students of the class to group projects, special needs, or other specific criteria.

An additional drop-down menu displays in the upper-left corner of the gradebook for instructors who use grading groups:

Click any option in the menu to filter your gradebook for only students in those groups.
