How do I enter grades in the Grader report?

You will learn how to enter student grades and text comments directly into the gradebook using the Grader report page.

The Grader report is like a spreadsheet where you can click on a cell to enter data. Entering grades via the Grader report is a typical process for offline (face-to-face) activities, like an in-class essay or exam. For online activities, like Assignments or Quizzes, completed using TITANium, there are grading pages within each activity where you would typically enter grades and feedback.

1. Click on the Grades link in the Administration block.

Click the Grades link in the Administration block to access the gradebook. The Administration block is by default the first block in the left-hand column of your course main page.

2. Click on the Turn editing on button.

The Turn editing on button is in the top right corner of the Grader report page.

3. View the Grader report with editing turned on.

Grade cells are now clearly outlined. The solid-outlined cell is for the grade point value. The dotted-outlined cell is for a text comment.

4. Enter the grade points and the text comments.

After entering the grade points and the text comments (optional), hit the Tab key to go to the next cell. You will notice that the cell you just finished has now turned yellow. This is to highlight the cells where you have already entered the grade points. Next time you visit the Grader report page those highlights will be gone.

5. The Course total column is updated with each grade point entry.

The default Course total aggregation method is Natural, meaning a sum of grade points entered into all of the Grade item columns.
