Access the Grade Center:
You access the Grade Center from the Control Panel. Expand the Grade Center section to display the links to the Needs Grading page and the Full Grade Center
On the Needs Grading page, you can begin grading assignments, group assignments, tests, blog and journal entries, wiki page saves, and discussion posts. More on the Needs Grading page can be found here.
The Full Grade Center link displays all columns and rows in the Grade Center and is the default view of the Grade Center.
Assign grades in the Grade Center:
Grades are assigned automatically for online tests and surveys that have no questions that require manual grading. You can manually edit these grades.
You can assign grades in the Grade Center in these ways:
You access the Grade Test page from the Needs Grading page or the Grade Center.
If you allowed multiple attempts for a test, a student’s grade is not released until you have graded all of the attempts.
You can choose to grade tests with user names hidden. Grading in this way allows you to remain objective and not unduly influenced by a student’s behavior or previous performance. This practice can also contribute to the student-instructor relationship because students are assured that grading was unbiased.
When grading anonymously, all identifying information is hidden and assessment attempts appear in random order. Each student is assigned a number, such as Student 8.
You can create multiple rubrics in your course. Rubrics consist of rows and columns. The rows correspond to the criteria. The columns correspond to the level of achievement that describes each criterion. New rubrics have three rows and three columns.
After you create rubrics, you can associate them with content.
Control Panel > Course Tools > Rubrics
You can reorder rows and columns. Select the Criteria or Levels of Achievement heading, which opens a reorder panel.
After you use a rubric for grading, you can't edit it. You can copy the rubric to create a duplicate rubric you can edit.
