In this lesson, you will review how to use the grading tools available in your Gradebook via Classroom.
Where to Start
1. Click Grade, then Gradebook.
2. The Gradebook tools consist of a pair of pop-up menus on the left (Student Tools) and right (Assignment Tools) of the screen. The Student Tools consists of (from left to right) Find & Replace, Show Pop-Up, Show Averages. The Assignment Tools consists of Upload Grades, Show Assignment Details, Find & Replace, Edit Assignment, New Assignment, and Import DDC Exam Grades.
Note: The Import DDC Exam Grades icon will display only when you have created an assignment that has been linked to DDC.
The Student Tools Find & Replace can be used to find and replace a grade for a specific student. See the guide Gradebook: Find & Replace to learn more.
The Student Tools Show Pop-Up icon is a useful shortcut. You can use it to view the student portfolio, create/edit or view anecdote, edit attendance, view class performance, student performance, email parent, and email the student.
The Upload Grades icon in the Assignment Tools menu is useful if you want to upload grades from Excel into your gradebook. The uploads are assignment specific and can be done by using our template to upload your grades. See the lesson Upload Grades to learn more.
The Assignment Tools Show Assignment Details icon list all pertinent assignment information including the title, category, due date, and point value to name a few. You can also use this page to edit the assignment.
Assignment Tools Find & Replace allows you to find and replace assignment specific grades. See the guide Gradebook: Find & Replace to learn more.
The Assignment Tools Import DDC Exam Grades allows you to import DDC exam grades. The grades will be calculated based on the category you link the exam to. For example, you import the DDC grades to a Quiz category worth 10% of the grade vs. an Exam category worth 25% of the grade each will be calculated accordingly.
Once you select Import DDC Exam Grades the grades will automatically fill-in each cell (highlighted in green in the image above). If the assignment has not been graded you will get the following screen.
