The Export Grades function does not only allow you to transfer grades from Brightspace into other systems, e.g. uSis, but it provides an editable document. It can also be used as a way to export a classlist of your course.

  • Click on Enter Grades.
  • Click on Export.

  1. Select whether you want to export all student data or just from 1 group or section.
  2. Select your preferred sorting.
  3. Select the Grade Values you want to export:
    • points grade = the number of points the student received
    • Optional: weighted grade = the weight of that grade item
    • Optional: grade scheme = is the symbol (actual grade) the student received for that grade item according to the used grade scheme
  4. Select the user details you want to export.
