Posting Grades

This guide pertains to Ultra Course View.

If your course is in Original Course View, see the Original Course View tutorial collection.


Posting Grades Overview

Instructors must post grades so students can see the grade.  Instructors can wait and post grades after grading an item is completed for all students.

Watch:  Grading Actions video.

Once you post a grade, you cannot “unpost” it. You can change the grade, but you can not return to the unposted grade mode where the students cannot see the grade. You can Post Assessment Grades Automatically or they can be manually posted, when you are ready to release them to students.

You can post grades from four locations:

  1. List View: Gradable Items Tab

  2. Student Overview page

  3. Assignment Submissions Tab

  4. Grid View of the Gradebook
