In this article, you’ll learn about:
- Viewing grades at the class level
- Viewing grades at the assessment level
- Configuring the View Options
Viewing grades at the class level
On the first page of the gradebook, you’ll see the students’ grades broken out by module average. The first grade to the right of a student’s name is the student’s class average.
At this level, you can see that the students who have completed all assessments in the module have a checkmark in their grade cell.
Using the Export and Refresh buttons at the top-right of the page, you can export the data on this page to a spreadsheet and refresh the window to see recent work loaded into the gradebook.
Teachers tell us this view is helpful for monitoring a class’s progression through assignments.
Viewing grades at the assessment level
Select a module from the drop-down to see the breakdown of the automatically graded assessments in that module.
The number to the right of the student’s name has changed to show their average grade for the selected module.
Columns are separated into unit quizzes, module tests and pre-tests (if enabled). Whether students have completed an assessment or not, you can see more detail by clicking on the grade cell for your student.
To see this information in a spreadsheet, use the Export button at the top-right.
Configuring the View Options
We know teachers view their grades in different ways, so the gradebook is designed to be customizable based on your needs.
Click the View Options button to configure your preferences:
- Do you want to view grades as points or percentages?
- Do you want to see in-progress or final grade calculations?
- Do you want to show or hide electronic worksheet progress?
You can set these options now and change them as needed throughout the school year.
One important option on this pop-up is choosing how to calculate grades (as In-Progress grades or Final grades).
- In-Progress grades are the average of what the student has completed so far. Uncompleted work is not factored into your students’ grades with this view.
- Final grades display the average grade, counting uncompleted assessments as zeros.
NOTE: The View Options do not alter how your grades Export to Excel.
