How do I add a grading scheme to an Assignment?

You can add a grading scheme to an assignment. You can use search for grading schemes created by your institution or you can create a new grading scheme.

Notes:

  • When an assignment is part of selected content in a course export, the grading scheme for the assignment will also be imported.
  • Using an account-level grading scheme built by your institution links the scheme into your course—it does not import as a new scheme on the course level.
