Assess assignments with grade schemes

You can associate a select box grade item to an assignment, allowing you to evaluate assignment submissions directly with a grade scheme, rather than inputting a numeric value directly.

To assess assignments with grade schemes in the assignment creation experience

  1. Navigate to Assignments.
  2. On the Assignments page, click New Assignment.
  3. Enter a Name for the assignment and any Instructions.
  4. Under Grade Out Of, click Ungraded to enter the points for the assignment.
  5. Click In Gradebook, and then select Edit or Link to Existing.
  6. From the Edit or Link to Existing dialog, the following options may display under Create and link to a new grade item:
    • If the Grades tool has available grade categories, the Choose Grade Category option displays. Clicking this button displays available grade categories for association.
    • If the Grades tool has multiple grades schemes, the Change Grade Type & Scheme option displays. Clicking this button displays available grade types and schemes for association.
  7. Click OK, and then Save.
