View Grades

Grades are sorted chronologically by assignment due date, followed by assignments with no due dates.

You can view the name of the assignment [1], the assignment due date [2], the score you earned [3], the total point value of the assignment [4], and icons for any assignment details [5].

You may also see an icon in the score column [6] indicating the type of assignment you submitted. Once your instructor has graded your assignment, the icon will be replaced by your score.

Note: If your course uses weighted assignment groups, your total grade will show as a percent. You can use your mouse to hover over the total grade to show points earned out of points possible.

View Scoring Details

Click the Check Mark icon to view scoring details [1]. A box and whisker plot will show your score along with the mean, high and low scores from the class [2]. In the box and whisker plot, the thin horizontal "whisker" extends from the lowest score for any student in the course to the highest score. The thicker, white box extends from the 25th percentile to the 75th percentile, with the median marked inside the white box by a gray line. Your score appears as a blue box on this plot.

You will only see scoring details if more than 5 other students have submitted that assignment in the course. If you do not see the scoring details, then less than 5 students have submitted the assignment.
