Releasing grades in d2 l

  1. 1. Releasing  Grades  in  D2L    The  action  of  releasing  grades  in  D2L  requires  steps*  in  two  main  sections.  The  first  one  is  to  allow  automatic  updates  of  grades  to  students  and  is  a  part  of  the  Grade  Setup  Wizard.  The  second  step  is  much  less  obvious.  Directions  for  both  parts  of  the  process  are  detailed  here.    *Until  you  complete  these  actions  in  each  course,  students  will  only  be  able  to  see  individual  grade  items,  not  their  average  grade  in  your  course.    Part  I:  Setting  Display  Options    To  begin,  click  Grades,  then  Settings.                                Notice  the  three  tabs  across  the  top  of  this  page.  Adjust  the  settings  by  making  selections  to  fit  your  preferences  on  each  tab.  Be  sure  to  save  changes  at  the  bottom  of  each  screen  as  you  go.                         1. Personal  Display  Options  controls  what  YOU  see  grade  in  your  grade  book.   2. Course  Display  Options  controls  what  STUDENTS  see.     3. Calculation  O ptions  determines  how  the  grade  is  calculated  and  updated.     (All  three  tabs  are  covered  in  the  Setup  Wizard  but  can  be  adjusted  at  any  time.)            
  2. 2.  On  the  Calculations  Options  tab,  you’ll  find  the  options  to  Release  Calculated  Final  Grade  or  Adjusted  Final  Grade.  Calculated  is  a  true  numeric  average  or  point  value.  Adjusted  requires  you  to  manually  adjust  the  average  based  on  discretionary  measures.  Releasing  Calculated  Final  Grades  is  recommended  in  D2L.          Also  on  the  Calculation  Options  tab  is  the  first  location  to  select  IF  you  want  to  automatically  keep  final  grades  updated.  Select  the  box  if  you  DO.  Uncheck  the  box  if  you  DO  NOT.            Part  II:  Releasing  the  Final  Grades    Click  Grades,  then  Enter  Grades.                    
  3. 3. Click  the  drop  down  arrow  next  to  the  Final  Calculated  Grade  column  and  select  Grade  All.                                                On  your  list  of  Users  (Students),  click  and  put  a  check  mark  in  the  “Select  All”  box,  then  click  Release/Unrelease  one  time.    Be  careful.    This  is  a  toggle  icon;  clicking  it  more  than  once  does  and  undoes  the  action.    Scroll  down  to  SAVE  your  changes.     Use  the  #  per  page  adjustment  to   release  large  classes  at  once,  or  else   you  have  to  repeat  page  by  page.     After  the  act  of  releasing  grades  once  in  your  course,  you   should  not  have  to  do  it  again  unless  a  new  student  is  added   to  your  class  list.  You  will  know  the  grade  is  released  by  the   check  mark  in  the  column  on  the  right.         The  Enter  Grades  view  Final  Calculated  Grade  now  also   shows  an  open  eye  next  to  each  student’s  grade  that  has   been  released  (see  image  on  left).
