Entering and Managing Grades
There are different ways grades can be entered.
You can enter grades in the Grade Center in the following ways:
- Scores are entered automatically into the Grade Center for course items such as online tests, exams, and surveys.
You can upload grades from an external source, such as a comma separated values (CSV) file or an Excel spreadsheet, eliminating the need for double entry.
- You can manually enter grades into the Grade Center.
Automatically Entered Grades
Tests are scored automatically and recorded in the corresponding Grade Center column. Some questions require manual grading such as Essay questions. You can manually edit grades that are scored automatically.
Manually Entered Grades
You can manually enter grades in the following areas:
Directly in cells on the main Grade Center page.
Click within a cell and type the value.
Press the Enter key. If you do not press the Enter key and you attempt to leave the entry cell or Grade Center, a dialog box asks if you want to save the grade entry.
Click OK to save the grade.
Upload Grades From External Sources
To eliminate repeated entry of Grade Center data in several tools, you can work offline and then upload grades into the Grade Center. You can upload grades from external sources such as a comma separated values (CSV) file or an Excel spreadsheet. Data must be formatted specifically to upload correctly and be synched with existing Grade Center data.
