About the Grade Center
The Grade Center functions as an online spreadsheet where each row contains the name of one of your students and each column represents an item such as an assignment, test, or calculated grade.
Set up your Grade Center in myLesley (online tutorial)
Basic Grade Center
For an overview of the basic Grade Center features, including creating columns and entering grades, see myLesley Grade Center and Grading.
Viewing Grade Details
Grade Details displays the student's grade information including each attempt at completing the assignment. Here you may view, grade and provide feedback to the student, as well as view the students' attempts and grade history.
To access the Grade Details, go to the Full Grade Center.
Locate your student's submission in the Grade Center spreadsheet.
Hover your mouse over the submission until the chevron appears.
Click the chevron to open a menu. Select View Grade Details.
You will be brought into the Grade Details area. Here, you may grade, clear, exempt, or ignore an attempt; allow an additional attempt; override a grade; view the grade column details; and view the grade history.
See View Grade Details for more information or watch the How to Use Grade Details to See Attempts and Assign Grades tutorial video.
Clearing a Student's Assignment Attempt or Allowing an Additional Assignment Attempt
By default, Assignments are set to only allow one attempt per student. In some cases, you may need to clear a student's attempt or allow a student to submit an additional attempt. See Clearing a Student's Assignment Attempt or Allowing an Additional Assignment Attempt for more information and detailed instructions.
At times you may need to change a grade for a student's submission. See Override Grades for more information.
Anonymous and Delegated Grading
Anonymous grading allows instructors to grade without bias by hiding student names from submissions. You may enable anonymous grading when creating an assignment. For instructions on creating an assignment, see Creating and Managing myLesley Assignments.
When creating an assignment, scroll down to Grading Options and select Enable Anonymous Grading. You may choose whether to disable anonymous grading after a certain date or once all submissions are graded.
Once you begin grading the assignment you will notice that the students appear anonymous.
Please note that if your students include their name in the body of their assignment it will not be hidden from you.
Delegated grading allows you to divide up grading tasks among specific users in your course (such as another instructor or teaching assistant). These users may provide provisional grades, which you may then review to determine a final grade. You may enable delegated grading when creating an assignment. For instructions on creating an assignment, see Creating and Managing myLesley Assignments
When creating an assignment, scroll down to Grading Options and select Enable Delegated Grading. You may decide whether to provide access for each grader to review all submissions, a random set, or groups. You may also decide whether or not each grader has the ability to view other graders' scores, feedback, and notes.
Rubrics can help students organize their efforts to meet the requirements of an assignment, and you can use them to explain evaluations to students. Rubrics can help ensure consistent and impartial grading. See myLesley Rubrics for more information on creating, editing, and associating rubrics.
Grade Center Reports and Statistics
You can create printable reports from the Grade Center including progress reports from a particular grading period or for a specific set of students. You may also view statistical information related to any column or any user. See Grade Reports and Statistics or watch the Creating a Grade Report tutorial.
Working Offline with the Grade Center
Offline grading allows you to grade at your convenience, without needing to be online. You may upload grades from an external file (such as an Excel spreadsheet or csv file) or download your Grade Center grades to work offline.
For more information, see Working Offline with the Grade Center or watch the Working Offline with the Grade Center tutorial video.
