Gradebook: Settings

Review Your Course Grade Settings

The Course Grade Settings tab is used to determine how grades appear for all participants in a course (students and instructors).

The Course Grade Settings tab provides settings that determine how the Grader report, Overview report and User report will appear. An instructor can decide how grades are displayed for both themselves and for students. The Overview report and User report are how students will see their grades displayed. Only an instructor will see the Grader report.

Locate the Action Menu Gear Icon.

Click the Gradebook setup link.

Click into the Course grade settings sub-tab near the top of the page.

The General settings section determines whether the category and course total columns are displayed first or last in the User report.

Grade item settings is used to set how grades are displayed in the Grader report and User report: Real, Letter, or Percentage.

Overview report: This section determines how materials in the Overview report are displayed.

The User report section determines display details for student grades in the User report. An instructor can decide whether to Hide or Show details such as class rank, item percentages and item feedback, or whether to show grades at all.

A student will only see their own User report.

Remember to click on Save changes once you have finished changing your settings.
