D2L: Managing Grade Schemes


Grade schemes automatically determine how grades are organized and labeled in a Desire2Learn gradebook. Percentages can be color coded for a visual representation of student assessment. When a course is created, a default organization grade scheme is assigned to each course and each grade item. The Organization grade schemes that appear in a gradebook when a course is created cannot be deleted. However, if the instructor creates other grade schemes (called Course Schemes) they can be deleted. Existing or new schemes can be copied and that is typically the easiest way to create a new scheme. If a scheme appears as a URL it can be edited. Grade schemes can be copied to another course using the Copy Components command or the Import/Export command.  Additional Information on managing grade schemes can be found at Managing grade schemes in the Desire2Learn Online Resource Center.  Following this link will direct you away from the UW-Platteville KnowledgeBase.
