Using Sakai 2.9 Gradebook, how do I enter or edit grades?

Note: To complete these procedures, you must be assigned a role having the necessary permissions. To determine your role, follow the directions in Participant roles. For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and roles: Overview.

Entering grades

Note: Scores may be sent to the Gradebook directly from Assignments, Forums, or Tests & Quizzes by selecting Add to Gradebook in the appropriate tool. If you use this option, you must enter grades via that tool rather than Gradebook.

To enter grades for items in Gradebook:

  1. In your site's menubar, click Gradebook.

  2. Click the title of the Gradebook item for which you want to enter grades.

    Note: To change the number of students displayed, use the Show drop-down list. To display specific groups or sections of students, use the View drop-down list.

  3. A list of students will appear, with an entry box in the "Grade" column. Enter each student's grade for the item into the appropriate box. Scores must be greater than or equal to zero, and may contain up to two decimal places. You may leave a box blank if necessary. (Blank entries will affect course grades differently than zeroes; see Course grade calculations.)

  4. To add comments for students, click Edit Comments. Type your comments in the text box.

  5. When you are finished, click Save Changes. A grade history log indicating the date entered, the grade, and the submitter is created for each score. Click the Log icon to view the details for an entry.

Editing grades

Note: Scores submitted via external tools such as Assignments, Forums, and Tests & Quizzes cannot be edited in Gradebook. These scores must be changed in the source tools.

To edit existing grades in Gradebook:

  1. In your site's menubar, click Gradebook.

  2. Click the title of the Gradebook item for which you want to edit grades.

  3. Current grades for individual students for this particular item will appear in editable fields following each name. To edit a grade for a student, change the grade in the appropriate field.

  4. To add comments for students, click Edit Comments. Type your comments in the text box.

  5. When you are finished, click Save Changes. The grade history log will record the date of each grade change, the updated grade, and the name of the user who made the change. Click the Log icon to view the details for an entry.
