The Gradebook displays student scores on assessments and assignments. Depending on your course set up, your gradebook can contain columns for any of the following (not limited to) assessments and activities:
- Practice Completed shows student progress on formative on-page practice activities—the % complete reflects formative practice activities for which all questions are fully answered in the module.
- Summative Assessments are typically called Tests or Quizzes—these scores are calculated by dividing the total points available by the number of items a student answered correctly
- Personal Practice shows student progress on adaptive practice activities—the % complete reflects adaptive practice activities for which all questions are fully answered in the module.
- Before You Continue are self-assessment diagnostic activities—and show as answered or not (no score)
- Hand-in Assignments are student submission assignments—these scores are based on instructor grading using a rubric
Remember! The Gradebook contains useful tooltips on most items to assist you with grading. Roll-over any underlined item to see the tooltip.
Score is calculated by dividing the number of completed practice activities by the total number of activities in the module. The percent reflects formative practice activities for which all questions are fully answered in the module.
A practice activity is considered complete when a student has answered all available questions in the activity and checked their answers. An incomplete question means the entire activity is incomplete.
This score provides instructors with quick insight into each student's rate of completion on formative practice and adds more context to a student’s summative assessment scores.*
- Formative practice activities include all on-page Learn by Doing activities + Personal Practice activities if they are available in the course.
- If your course has no formative practice the Practice Completed column will show as NA.
- This score is visible to students via My scores.
Details on scores can be accessed by clicking on an individual score.
- First Activity Started: Date and time of first practice activity completed in the module.
- Last Activity Completed: Date and time of last practice activity completed in the module.
- Completion: Percent of formative practice activities from all formative practice activities completed in the module.
- Total time spent in module: Approximation of time spent in the module.
- Average first attempt accuracy: Rate of first attempt accuracy for all practice questions completed by a student within a module.
You can choose to hide the gradebook Practice Completed Column by using the toggle.
Note: Toggling off the Practice Completed Column will not hide the column from student view in My scores.
*This score is the same Practice Completed data that appears in the Learning Dashboard.
Score is calculated by dividing the total points available by the number of items a student answered correctly. Depending on your course setup, Summative assessment scores in the gradebook may represent one of the following
- 1st attempt (the score of the student's 1st attempt)
- Last attempt (the score of the student's last attempt)
- Maximum (the student's best score of all attempts)
- Average (the mean of all student's attempts)
Details on scores and attempts can be accessed by clicking on an individual score.
Note: How your course's Summative assessments are scored is called out at the top of the gradebook and columns are marked with a tilde. These tildes are also included in the gradebook export.
The default Score for Personal Practice is based on completion (the percent of the activity's questions that have been completed). Details on scores and attempts can be accessed by clicking on an individual score.
Note: Depending on your course setup, Personal Practice scores in the gradebook may represent accuracy (the percent of the activity's questions that have been answered correctly).
