How do I connect the Assignments tool to Gradebook2?
Under Grade Scale, select Points and enter a number of maximum points.
All Assignments connected to the Gradebook must be graded by points. If your Gradebook is set up for grading by percentages or letter grades, the Assignment tool will automatically convert the points to percentages or letter grades.
Making this connection creates a new item in the Gradebook2 tool.
Note; If you use this type of Gradebook connection you cannot add (or edit) the student's grade in the Gradebook spreadsheet column. All grades come from the Assignment tool.
Making this connection send the grades to an existing item in the Gradebook2 tool.
Note; If you use this type of Gradebook connection you add (or edit) the student's grade in both the Assignments tool AND in the the Gradebook spreadsheet column.
If you selected Add Assignment to Gradebook, a new item will be added to the Gradebook.
By default, the assessment item is placed in an "unassigned" category (if you are using categories) and it is displayed in Blue, which means that the grades can be see in the gradebook as soon as they released in the Assignment tool.
Right-click the name of the grade item and select Edit this grade item.
This displays the Edit Item panel on the right.
Note: as an alternative, you can drag and drop the grade item into the proper category, however, this does not work well with some browsers.
Clicking "Save and Release" will post the Grade in both the Assignment tool and in the Gradebook tool.
Clicking "Save and Don't Release" will save the Grade but the Student will not see the grade in either the Assignment tool or the Gradebook tool.
Grading: Instructors can optionally Release All grades at once on the Assignment Submission list page.
If you selected Associate with existing Gradebook entry, the Assignment grade will be associated with the selected existing Gradebook entry.
Note: The item is not automatically set to be released to students.
