Use the links to access more detailed reports
The gradebook features two different kinds of handy links.
Click a student's name to view an individual report of the student's past Assignments. The individual student report comes in handy when you want to hone in on just one particular student's results. You might use it in IEP conversations or during a parent teacher conference.
Click an assignment's title to get to your assignment's Results page, where you can view a detailed breakdown of your class's performance. You can then take a much deeper dive
Easily Switch Your Gradebook's Orientation
By clicking the button shown below, you can toggle between seeing your students' names down the left-hand side of your Gradebook and seeing them listed across the top.
Sort Assignments by Date
This handy drop-down menu allows you to view Assignments from a certain window in time. NoRedInk's default is to show you all Assignments created for that class, but for a leaner gradebook, you might choose to see only this week's or this month's Assignments. You can can also pick a custom date range to see only Assignments for the semester or trimester.
Using the drop-down featured below, you can download your gradebook to Excel or to a CSV. You can then upload it to different programs or analyze scores outside of NoRedInk.
Display scores as Percentages or Points
By default, your Gradebook displays scores as percentages, but you can adjust this by using the "Settings" dropdown.
What do the Gradebook symbols represent?
How can the scores help me understand a student's assignment progress?
Generally, the place to find detailed results for a specific assignment is in the specific assignment's Results page. However, the Gradebook can provide some helpful details at a glance!
For Assessments: Scores will only appear once students complete the assignment. The scores that are displayed in the Gradebook for assessments are final, unless reset by the teacher. To track students' progress during these assignments, it's best to use the assignment's Results page.
For Practice: Scores represent students' ongoing progress in the assignment. Unlike assessments, practice assignments are graded based on completion. If a student appears with 100%, this means the practice is complete. If a practice appears with 50%, this means the student is only halfway through the assignment. Click here to learn more about tracking Practice results.
Once the due date has passed, if a practice assignment has not been started, it will be given a grade of 0. This is overwritten if the work is completed after the due date if late work is allowed in the assignment.
For Writing: A grade will only appear once you've graded the student's writing. Once the due date has passed, if a practice assignment has not been started, it will be given a grade of 0.
Once the due date has passed, if writing as not been submitted for grading, it will be given a grade of 0. This is overwritten if the work is completed after the due date only if late work is allowed in the assignment.
