Setting student feedback options

Note: To complete the procedures in this document, you need to be assigned a role that has the necessary permissions. To find out what your role is, follow the directions in Participant roles. To see a list of what permissions are associated with a given role, see Permissions, roles, and tools. For a basic understanding of roles and permissions, see Permissions and Roles: Overview.

To set student feedback options in the Gradebook, follow these steps:

  1. In the menubar, click Gradebook.

  2. At the top of the Gradebook, click Grade options.

  3. On the Grade Options form, choose from the following options:

    Grade Display: Check the desired options for revealing assignment and course grades to your students. The Display assignment grades to students option is checked by default, and the option to Display course grades to students now. is unchecked by default so that you may release your grades at the end of the grading period.

    Grade Conversion: In the "Grade Type" drop-down list, select the type of grade you wish to use, and then click the Change grade type button.

    Grade/Minimum % table: In this table, you will see the minimum percentages for each grade. Manually entered course grades are not affected by the percentages in the grade/percent table. If you manually enter a course grade, you will see the error message "You have changed the grading scheme. All manually overwritten course grades remain unaffected." For more information about manually overriding course grades, see Overriding an autocalculated course grade.

  4. When you have finished, click Save. If you don't wish to save your changes, click Cancel to return to the Gradebook Overview.
