Assignment Grades

Assignments are not graded automatically. Each assignment needs to be graded by your instructor. You can review the information provided by your instructor in My Grades or on the assignment's Review Submission History page.

Accessing My Grades From Within Your Course

  1. On the course menu, click Tools.
  2. On the Tools page, click My Grades.

Accessing My Grades From Outside Your Course

  1. On the My Institution tab, click My Grades on the Tools panel.
  2. On the My Courses/Organizations page, click the name of your course.

Reviewing Your Grade

If your assignment has not been graded, the Grade column contains a symbol indicating its status. If your assignment has been submitted and graded, the grade appears in the Grade column. To view more detail, click the link to see the assignment's Review Submission History page.

This page includes:

  • Instructor Feedback: This section lists your grade and any feedback provided by your instructor.
  • Attached Files: This section provides links to open or download any files attached by you or your instructor. For example, your instructor might provide comments in a file that you submitted with your assignment.

If your instructor has used a rubric for grading and has made it available to students, click View Rubric to display detailed grading information.

Reviewing a Graded Assignment Submission Inline

You can view your grade and any annotations your instructor made to your assignment submission directly from the assignment attempt without downloading the file.

If you do not see an inline viewer, your school has not turned it on.

Inline Viewing Supported Formats

When you submit a document through an Assignment, that document is converted to a format that is viewable inside a web browser. Supported document types that can be converted are Word (DOC, DOCX), PowerPoint (PPT, PPTX), Excel (XLS, XLSX), and PDF (PDF).

The converted document is displayed in a viewer on the assignment attempt page. Formatting and embedded images of the original document are preserved in the conversion.

The viewer is supported on current versions of Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer. No plug-in or other application is necessary.

If you have uploaded a file that isn't in a format supported by the inline viewer, then you will not see the viewer.
