The Gradebook tool allows instructors to list course assignments and corresponding student scores, and calculate, store, and distribute grade information to students online. Courses can be graded on letter grade, simple letter grade, or pass/fail scales.

Individual gradebook items can be entered as points or as percentages. These items can be calculated by a simple summation or as a weighted grading scheme.

Instructors can also have grades from assignments that were created with the CTools Assignments tool automatically go into the Gradebook as well as graded messages from the Forums tool and assessments from the Test Center tool.

Instructor's view of the gradebook items

Above: There are different ways instructors can view information in the Gradebook, including a general overview for each course, assignment detail, course grade detail, student roster, adding or editing assignments, gradebook options, and student view




Students can view their cumulative scores for all assignments and the corresponding percentage; view their course grades, once an instructor releases them; and sort their assignments by title, due date, grade, and total possible points per assignment.
