Items to be graded are shown in the columns to the right of the studentís name. Every student has a value for every Gradebook item.

        Padlock: Activity in Progress. (A student is currently using the Assessment or Assignment).

        Dash: No Information. A student has not taken the Assessment or has not submitted the Assignment.

        Exclamation Point: Needs Grading. The item has been submitted by the student and needs to be graded by the instructor.

        Question Mark: Gradebook Error.

        Checkmark: Item has been completed by the student.

        Asterisk: Item is not visible.

4.      To enter a grade, put your cursor over the symbol (padlock, dash, etc.) and click. This will open the Modify Grade screen.

5.      Enter the grade.

6.      Click Submit.
