Note: Assignments, Tests & Quizzes, and Student Content in Lessons can be sent to the Gradebook from within the respective tools when the item is posted or published. There is no need to add those items manually in the Gradebook.

Instructors typically add items to the gradebook manually for things such as:

  • Posting grades for items completed outside of Sakai
  • Discussion Forum grades
  • Participation

Click the Add Gradebook Items button to manually add items to your Gradebook.
