Entering Grades Manually

Once you have set up your grade book structure, you are ready to start entering grades.

Remember – you enter grades via the “grader report” page.  This is the default landing page when you click “grades” from the main course page.

Once you are on the “grader report” page, make sure editing is turned off – adding grades with editing on may prevent them from saving.

To enter manual grades for students, simply click once in the grade entry box for the student whose grade you wish to enter.  Two boxes will appear – a solid box and a dotted box.  The solid box is where you place the grade, and the dotted box is where you can leave feedback for that student.

Once you have entered the grade and/or feedback, simply hit enter.  Moodle autosaves the grade.

Repeat the process as necessary.

Remember – if you are grading Moodle-based activities (forums, Moodle tests, homework submitted through Moodle, etc.), you need to grade students through the activity interface.
