Grade Book: How do I create a column or item to enter or import data into?
Grade Book: Creating Columns
You can create the following types of columns in the Grade Book:
Alphanumeric columns: allow you to enter a combination of letters and numbers. For example: Use an alphanumeric column to enter Student campus registration numbers that contain both letters and numbers.
Calculated columns: allow you to specify a formula (that can include other numeric columns) to come up with a numeric value. For example: You could use a calculated column to calculate an interim grade.
Grading form columns: allow you to calculate a numeric grade, based on a grading form. For example: You could use a grading form column to record grades for a discussion topic that is graded using a grading form.
Letter grade columns: to calculate a letter grade based on the numeric values of another column.
Numeric columns: allow you to enter numbers only. For example: You could use a numeric column to insert grades for an offline assignment and other interim grades.
Selection list columns: allow you to specify one or more text values that can then be selected. For example: You could use a selection list column to describe a Student's overall term effort (fair, good, excellent).
- Text columns: allow you to enter text only. For example: You could use a text column to add comments about each member for your own benefit or to enter online feedback regarding classroom or lab activities for students to view.
