Entering Grades
 
There are several ways in which grades can be entered into the Grade Center: automatically, by uploading from an external source, and manually. When Gradable Items (online tests, exams, and surveys, etc.) are created and taken, the scores are automatically entered into a corresponding Grade Column in the Grade Center. 
 
Grades from an external source can be uploaded to the Grade Center if they are in an approved format (Comma-delimited file-type, excel spreadsheet, etc).  For complete instructions on uploading/downloading grade centers, click hereGrades can also be manually entered into the Grade Center.
