View your grades

Use the Grades tool on the navbar to check your grades on assignments and tests. You can see your individual grades, as well as the grade formula used to evaluate you. Depending on how your grades are set up, you might be able to view comments and overall class performance statistics as well.

Note: Bonus grade items are displayed without the grade formula because they are added to the final grade after other calculations and may not adhere to the established grade scheme. Therefore, you can only view the numeric value and possibly the weight of a bonus grade.

How do I know when my grades are available?

You can sign up to receive immediate text or email notifications when a grade item is released or updated.

Note: You must set up a contact method before subscribing to notifications.

  1. From your personal menu on the minibar, click Notifications.
  2. Select if you want to receive Email or SMS notifications for the option Grades - grade item released or Grades - grade item updated.
  3. Click Save.

How do I view grades for old courses?

You can only view grades for active courses you are currently enrolled in. To view grades for an old course, contact the course instructor.

Where do I go to view feedback for quizzes, assignments, and discussions?

First, verify with your instructor that feedback is available for viewing.

If your instructor informs you that feedback is available for the activity, you can view the feedback from the respective tool. For example, to view assignment feedback, go to the Assignments tool, Class Progress, or Content.

Note: Depending on how Brightspace is configured in your organization, you may also go to the Grades tool to see completed rubric feedback for assignments, discussions, and quizzes.

Viewing Grade Item Exemptions

Learners can view the grade item exemptions in several locations in Brightspace. On the My Grades page, exemptions are listed in the Grade column. Points and weights that appear on the Grades page are controlled by instructors; however, the Grade column always shows exempted grade items.
