Grading Students

Updated Mar 23, 2021

This article covers the options for grading students within Brightspace and how to get grades into the gradebook.

There are 3 ways to get grades into the gradebook:

Grading via Assessment tools

Whenever you associate a grade item to an assessment tool, e.g. an Assignment, the grade you give in the Assessment tool will be transferred to the gradebook. This allows you to keep reviewing assessments and provide feedback, without going back and forth between the assessment and grades tool. 

Please note that you can always manually adjust grades in the gradebook if needed.

Check out these step by step manuals on:

Entering Grades manually in the Grades tool in Brigtspace

Entering grades manually can be useful if the assessment you want to evaluate takes outside of Brightspace, e.g. a presentation or an exam. 

Please see the video below for clear instructions on how to enter Grades in the Gradebook. 

Import grades from .csv/excel

Importing grades can be useful if you want to transfer grades from another system or your own grades administration into Brightspace.
