Grade Overrides

Grade Overrides

Grade overrides allows you to enter a grade directly from your gradebook. This feature is best used to enter zeros for unsubmitted items, or to enter grades for observational grade items that are only accessible through the gradebook. Overridden grades override existing scores for the assignment and prevent changes recorded outside of the gradebook (such as through an assignment's submissions page).

As a result, if an overridden grade is submitted for a student's assignment or quiz, it will need to be removed before they can reattempt that assignment or quiz. Otherwise, the gradebook will continue to display the locked overridden grade. Overridden grades are highlighted orange in your gradebook.

Grade Overrides in the Single View

The Single view filters by individual assignment or student, and is ideal for making grade changes for specific students or assignments at a time.

To Enter Overridden Grades in the Single View:

  1. Access your gradebook from the menu bar at the top of your course home page.
  2. From the dropdown menu, select 'Single view.'
  3. On the right side of the screen, use the 'Select grade item...' or 'Select user...' dropdown menus to filter by assignment or student. (When filtering by assignment, please do not select 'Category total' or 'Course total.' Doing so may lock students' grades if accidentally selected.)
  4. To the right of the desired assignments/students, check the boxes in the 'Override' column. (Please note, these boxes must remain checked in order for the grade to record.)
  5. Enter grade values in the 'Grade' column for all selected items/users. 
  6. Once your changes are complete, click 'Save changes.'

Grades Overrides in the Grader Report

The Grader report provides a snapshot of all your students and coursework, and is ideal for making grade changes for multiple students and assignments at a time.

To Enter Overridden Grades in the Grader Report:

  1. Access your gradebook from the menu bar at the top of your course home page.
  2. From the dropdown menu, select 'Grader report.'
  3. On the right side of the screen, click 'Turn editing on.'
  4. Scroll to find the student and assignment you wish to enter an overridden grade for.
  5. In the empty input field below the assignment, enter a numerical value.
  6. Once your changes are complete, click 'Save changes.'
