Grading Overview

learnonline sites handle individual assessment grades. Result Entry handles the overall grade of the course that your students will receive. The only way to alter an overall grade in the course site is to alter individual assessment grades, which in turn will change the overall grade for the student.

If you can see the assessments under the Teaching Dashboard Assessments Tab (once you have selected the desired course offering), then the system knows the assessment are summative and will push through to Result Entry.

Note: the teaching dashboard will update overnight. If you just made them summative in your course, check back in the next day.
