How do I connect the Assignments tool to Gradebook2?
Go to the Assignments tool.
Select Assignments from the Tool Menu in your site.
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.
Select a Grading option.
Option 1: Select Add Assignment to Gradebook.
Option 2: Select Associate with existing Gradebook entry.
Go to Gradebook2.
Select Gradebook2 from the Tool Menu in your site.
Option 1: New gradebook item.
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.
Edit the gradebook item.
Change the Category to the Selected Category, then click Save Close.
Grading: Click either Save and Release or Save and Don't Release.
Grading: Instructors can optionally Release All grades at once on the Assignment Submission list page.
Grading: Example of grade displayed in Gradebook2 tool.
Note: Option 1 does not allow the instructor to add/edit the grade in the Gradebook spreadsheet. All grades must come from the Assignment tool and must be released for the student to see them.
Option 2: Existing gradebook item.
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.
Grading: Go to the Gradebook tool and display the item.
Check the box next to the grade item so it is displayed in the right spreadsheet.
The grading process for Option 2 is the same as for Option 1. However, Option 2 also allows instructors to add/edit grades in the Gradebook spreadsheet.
