Entering Grades for Grade Items

If you need to provide grades for assessments that do not use one of the KATIE resources (e.g. assignment, quiz, forum), you will create a grade item in your Gradebook setup.

When you are ready to enter grades for that grade item, you have a few options.

  • In the Grader report, click Turn editing on. In the solid boxes, add grades. The dotted boxes are for feedback.
  • Go to Grades, then click the Single view tab. You can select the item to grade, then enter the grades and feedback in the boxes.
