In Gradebook, both students and instructors can view current scores.

Contents

[edit] Students

When you enter Gradebook, depending on what information your instructor has made available, you will see one or both of the following:

Course Grade: The course grade is a cumulative grade based on items you have completed. Any items you have not completed are not included in the course grade calculation unless your instructor has explicitly assigned zeroes to those items. A grade percentage appears in parentheses and shows the actual percentage derived from completed items.

Gradebook Items: The list of Gradebook items shows each item name, its due date (if applicable), your grade, and any comments associated with the grade.

[edit] Grades Not in the Isaak/Sakai Gradebook

Please consider that instructors choose when and where grades will be posted securely and privately. Instructors using the Gradebook in Isaak/Sakai may delay posting grades.

Other instructors may choose to use the Student Self Services/Faculty Gradebook tool in the https://my.brocku.ca portal instead of Isaak/Sakai's Gradebook.

[edit] Setting score display options

Instructors can choose to make available individual Gradebook items, as well as cumulative course grades. For instructions see Making grades available to students.

[edit] Viewing grades

When you enter Gradebook, you will see an Average Course Grade for the class and a list of individual Gradebook items. You can view cumulative scores using one of the following options:

Near the top, click Course Grades. You will see a list of your students. For each student, the points earned, the letter grade, and a percentage is displayed. The letter grade and percentage are based on the items that have been completed. To include items that have not been completed in the course grade calculation, you must enter a zero (0) for each item. To view the course grade by section or group, use the "View" drop-down list to select the section or group. Additionally, you can use the text box to search for individual students. By default only 50 students are visible. Use the "Show" drop-down list to display more students in the list.

Near the top, click All Grades. You will see a list of your students, and a course grade and a point value for each item in the Gradebook. The course grade is only shown as a percentage in this view and is based on the items that have been completed. To include items that have not been completed in the course grade calculation, you must enter a zero (0) for each item. To view the roster by section, group, or category, use the "View" drop-down list. Additionally, you can use the text box to search for individual students. By default only 50 students are visible. Use the "Show" drop-down list to display more students.
