ANGEL Tip of the day # 20 – Grades Not Showing Up

As we near the end of summer quarter and prime grading time, I thought I would focus on the top complaints that I get about the gradebook in ANGEL.
Problem: I entered the grades but they are not appearing in the gradebook.

Issue: No gradebook connection or Manual Grading

Solution: Connect the Assignment or Choose a different kind of grading

99% of the time, if someone cannot see their grades they either neglected to connect the assignment to the gradebook or they made the connection and chose manual grading. Let’s look at both of these.

Connecting the Assignment: In order for grades to appear in the gradebook, you need to connect the assignment to the gradebook. You do this under the Settings for the assignment and the Assignment tab. If it says “None” under “gradebook” then that is your problem. Choose New Assignment from the dropdown menu to begin making the connection.

Manual Grading: One of the choices in setting the assignment is Calculation Type. If you choose “manual” your grades entered at the assignment will not appear in the gradebook. You almost never want to choose manual grading as your calculation type. Just choose something else and your grades will magically appear.
