Setup Gradebooks

You can easily set your grading and attendance preferences using the Settings page in My Gradebooks. You can set or view grading options such as weights, score symbols, footnotes, and grade scales; and you can set attendance options such as start dates and attendance codes.

Some options may be locked by your Gradebook Manager, and others may require you to set another feature first. Any features locked out or unavailable to you will be grayed out or the fields will be read-only, and you will not be able to change the setting. Any options that are dependent on another will display a message letting you know what needs to be changed.

Click Settings from the My Gradebooks toolbar to open the Settings page.
