Gradebook
Sample course gradebook
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
