Gradebook is an Elentra module that allows the management of all assessments and learner grades within a course/program. It has multiple capabilities including:
Recording grades and making them visible to learners and some faculty (e.g., course directors)
Supporting multiple marking schemes including percentages, numerical grades (e.g., 7/10), complete/incomplete, pass/fail, and custom grading scale
Allowing an organization to have multiple grading scales as needed
Importing and exporting student grades
Linking assessments built through Elentra's quiz and exam module to a gradebook for easy transfer of grades
Allowing electronic submission of assignments through a drop box
Attaching grading forms (built in Assessment and Evaluation) to gradebook assessments so faculty can grade assessments inline and provide feedback to learners
Notifying a designated person if a learner grade is below a specific threshold
Creating dashboard notices for learners re: upcoming assignments (this applies specifically to assessments with drop box assignments added)
Allowing administrators to record comments about grades (e.g., late, excused absence, etc.)
Using weighted collections in a gradebook to easily distribute weights of assessments within a collection (e.g., quizzes)
Providing documents to learners through the gradebook (Document Delivery) without the learner having submitted anything
