By default, all Gradebooks begin with the Spreadsheet view. This preference can be changed in your Gradebook preferences, as described in the Setup Gradebook Preferences lesson. The Spreadsheet View is a great way to see all your students and assignments at a glance, enter large amounts of data at once, and jump off into assignments or students easily without changing screens or to other views.
Where to Start
- Click the Gradebook tab.
- Select My Gradebooks.
- Click on the title your Gradebook.
If your default view is not the Spreadsheet view, go to the View tab and select Spreadsheet.
