D2L: Assigning Grades (Faculty)


Grades can be entered into the Desire2Learn Gradebook in several different ways. Grade items can be associated directly with dropboxes, quizzes and discussions, so assessment is transferred directly from the tool to the gradebook. A gradebook can be exported to an Excel worksheet and grades entered in the Excel worksheet, saved and imported back into the Desire2Learn Gradebook. This Quickguide covers entered grades directly into the Desire2Learn gradebook tool.
