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 Assessments tools:
- Discussion tools
- Entering Grades manually in the Grades tool in Brigtspace
- Import grades from csv/excel
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.
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.
