How do I publish final grades for a moderated assignment in the New Gradebook?

A moderated assignment supports up to two provisional grades and one moderator grade. However, provisional grades are not included in the Gradebook and are only visible to moderators. Students cannot view any comments or grades until the grade is posted. You can either select grades directly in the Moderate page or you can select grades when reviewing the moderated assignment submission and comments.

Note: Once a grade is published, the grade in the Moderate page cannot be changed; all content is considered read-only for historical reference. However, grades can still be changed in the Gradebook.
