Accessing My Grades

Students view their course grades from the "My Grades" tool. Grades are available by default; however, instructors may choose to make a grade unavailable.

Students can access "My Grades" from the "Course Menu".

Information Technology
Viewing Grades

My Grades displays the following information by Default. The instructor can customize the information students see.

  • Item Name - each item is a column in the Grade Center, such as a grade column.
  • Details - contains the description the instructor entered when creating the column, or the default description of the column was automatically created.
  • Due Date - information appears only if the instructor entered a due date when creating the column.
  • Last Submitted, Edited, or Graded - displays the date a student submitted the item or the instructor graded or returned the item.
  • Grade - if the item has been graded, the grade is a link to the submission and instructor feedback; if it has not yet been graded, a symbol shows the item's status.
  • Points Possible - value entered by the instructor when creating the test or assignment, or when creating the column.
  • Comments - if the original grade is overridden, the instructor can provide feedback to the user.

Information Technology

In the Item Name column, you may see rows displaying a Total and Weighted Total.

In the Grade Column, a symbol represents the item's status.

The table below describes the symbols displayed on the My Grades page.
