The Gradebook page displays the class roster with columns for each assignment, such as homework or tests which require a score. If you have more than 50 students or create more than 25 assignments, they will appear on the next pages. Before you can enter scores, you first need to add the assignments to the gradebook. You can enter a score in a highlighted cell where the student and the assignment intersect. A double-asterisk (**) in a cell is a default grading symbol initially assigned to the cell with no value (exempt).
