When you first access the gradebook by clicking on “Grades” under the Navigation box, the Grader Report view is shown as the default. There are numerous views and screens available of the gradebook. This page will introduce you to the views that are commonly used.
Use the navigation tabs across the top-center of the page to switch between grade reports and gradebook settings.
The View tab
- Grader report shows the complete gradebook for the entire class, including all graded activities created for the course. This view shows all the grades for all the students in the course, with scrollbars along the right side and the bottom for classes with a large number of students and/or assignments. To sort the students by a grade column, click on the arrow symbol next to the column name. To record students' grades from the grader report, check out Record Grades in the CLE.
- Grade history shows a complete report of all grades entered and changed for the course. This can be particularly useful if there are multiple people grading in one course.
- Overview report lists all the courses a student is enrolled in together with the total grade for each course. Use the drop-down (top-right) to select a particular student.
- Single view allows you to enter grades for all students for a particular activity, or grades for a particular student for all activities.
- User report shows a grade report for a particular student. This is the same view that students have of their grades. Use the drop-down (top-right) to select a particular student.
