Select the radio button for the gradebook option you would like to use.

  • Do not add assignment to Gradebook: This is the default selection. This option does not send any grade information to the gradebook.
  • Add assignment to Gradebook: This will create a new item in the gradebook with the same name as your assignment title. This setting locks the grading into the assignment tool. Grades only appear in gradebook upon release in the assignment tool.
  • Associate with existing Gradebook entry: This option allows you to link your assignment to an existing gradebook item. This is useful if you have already created items in your gradebook and you want to use one of them, rather than creating a new assignment. You may only link an assignment to a single gradebook item, and vice versa. This setting allows grading to occur either in gradebook or in assignments. Grades can be released from either tool.
