How do I unlock a Grade item?
You will learn how to unlock a Grade item in your gradebook.
Below is a sample course with the Grader report page showing. The "Course Acceptance Message" grade item is currently locked. If you click on the cell to enter a grade, you cannot.
In contrast, if you click on the grade item cell to the right, you can see that you can enter a grade value. This should let you know that the Course Acceptance Message grade item is locked.
Follow these steps to unlock the Course Acceptance Message grade item.
1. Click on Setup.

7. Click on Save changes.
8. Click on the View tab to return to the Grader report.
Or, you can use the dropdown menu to navigate to the Grader report.
