Gradebook Scores: Record External Work

Follow
It is possible to input grades for an item that students completed for your course outside of VHL Central. The first step is to add an external assignment in the Scores area in the gradebook. Assignments added to the gradebook will:

- not count towards the student overall grades until the due-date has passed.

- not be counted as Late, so the gradebook will never apply “late penalties” to an External Item.

- automatically be given full points after the due date has passed if the item is in a ‘Credit only’ gradebook category.

- not count against the student grade, even after the due date has passed if the item has not yet been scored by the instructor. Score will remain as "Pending" until an instructor enters a score.

 

 1. From any page in the Scores area of a course section, click “+ Add Item.”
