How do I connect the Assignments tool to Gradebook2?
Select a Grading option.
Option 1: Select Add Assignment to Gradebook.
Option 2: Select Associate with existing Gradebook entry.
Option 1: Grade item sent to Gradebook from Assignment tool.
If you selected Add Assignment to Gradebook, a new item will be added to the Gradebook.
By default, the assignment 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.
Change the Category to the desired category, then click Save/Close.
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: Associating assignment with existing grade item.
If you selected Associate with existing Gradebook entry, the assignment grade will be linked to 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.
