Gradebook

New in ME 1.20!

  • Ability to link a discussion forum from a course website to a gradebook assessment to allow for inline grading

  • Added setting option to allow organizations to permit bonus grades

  • Added ability to enter a numeric grade that does not require a denominator

  • Added a pencil icon to grading cell so graders more easily know where to enter grades

Improvements:

  • Reversed colors used to show late submissions in a course gradebook (red now means late, and black means on-time).

  • Fixed bug that was preventing the dropbox setting "Allow graders to see name of the learner they are grading" from correctly being applied

  • Fixed bug where dropbox assignment without a due date was displaying to learners as due Dec. 1969

  • Cleaned up gradebook export so that assessments with a custom audience only exported results for that audience

  • Cleaned up learner view of weighted collections so that collections with no assessment that carries a weight towards the collection visible to learners will not show them 0%

Sample course gradebook

Gradebook is an Elentra module that allows the electronic 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, and pass/fail

  • 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

  • Allowing faculty to grade assessments electronically and provide individual 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
