SOLE Spotlight | Grade Explanation and Gradebook Reports | November 2023

Grade Explanation

Grade Explanation can be a useful tool for reviewing individual student grade calculations.

Once grades have been entered for a student the Grade Explanation button will become available within the Overall Grade column. The Grade Explanation displays the calculations used to derive individual students' Overall Grades for the course. When utilizing this feature within a grouped gradebook, the explanation for individual groups can also be accessed while viewing that particular group.

Gradebook Reports

Gradebook Reports can be generated to download and review student grades, assignment grade data, grade statistics, grade comments, and Checklist progress from within the Gradebook of a course.

Gradebook Reports include a Summary Report which provides a summary of all students and all assignments in the Gradebook, and Student Reports and Assignment Reports for more specified grade data.
