Release Final Grades

Did you know that students can’t see the Calculated or Adjusted Final Grade until you release it?

Here’s how to release the Final Grade.

1. First of all check to see which is going to be released – the calculated or the adjusted final grade.

Click on the Settings link at the top right of the Grades window
Click on the Calculation Options tab at the top right
In the Final Grade Released section, the one that’s dotted is the one that students will see when you release it. Make sure the one you want is dotted – the Calculated Final Grade or the Adjusted Final Grade.
Save, and Close that window

2. Release the grade

Back in the Enter Grades window, Click the black triangle beside the Final Calculated Grade (or adjusted grade – it doesn’t matter) and select Grade All.
You need to tick all the boxes in the 2nd last column for students to be able to view their final grade. You can do them all at once – read on.

If you selected Calculated Final Grade in the settings:

When you tick those boxes and Save, the Calculated Final Grade is available to students.
You can release all the grades at once by clicking on that triangle at the top of the page and selecting “Release All“, then click the Save button at the bottom of the page.

If you selected Adjusted Final Grade in the settings:

You will need to transfer the grade from the Calculated column over to the Adjusted column then tick the release box.  That will show students their grade.

You can transfer all the calculated grades to the Final Adjusted Grade column, in one step.
Up at the top of the page, click on the triangle beside the Final Grades title and select “Transfer All“. That moves the Calculated grade to the Adjusted Grade column. You can then change the grades for those students who need adjusting.
Click the Save button at the bottom of the page.
You can release all the grades at once by clicking on that triangle at the top of the page and selecting “Release All“, then click the Save button at the bottom of the page.
