Posting Grades by Task or Student

PATH: Campus Instruction > Grade Book > Post Grades

Using the Post Grades tool, you have the option of posting grades by task or by student. When using this tool, you are posting grades for the entire task or standard, rather than entering scores for a specific assignment. Posted grades appear in the students' Grades tab and is the grade that posts to the students' Transcripts using the Transcript Post Wizard, if Post to Transcript is marked for the Grading Task or Standard.

Grades can only be posted to open (or active) grading tasks. If a task is selected that has no fields available for entering student grades, the task is not active for grading at this time. Tasks can be activated using the Grading Window or by setting the Active Mask for the Grading Tasks or Standards.

Scores and percentages that appear automatically have already been posted using the Grade Book.

Select the Section and Term from the dropdown lists at the top to populate the Task and Student dropdown lists with available options.

See the Using Rollup Grade Calculations article for more information about grading standards using the rollup calculation provided. This option can be set up in the Grade Calc Options for the Course or Course Master with the release of Campus.1701.


Posting by Task

To post by task, select Standard/Grading Task from the Post by dropdown list and a Task. All students in the selected section are listed.
