View Grade History

The Grade History page acts like a log file that records all of the changes that occur to grades within a course/organization, and displays all the data for grade submissions for the course/organization within a set date range. You can manipulate the view and export the information.

Access the Grade History page from the Reports drop-down list on the action bar. The following columns appear:

 
ColumnDescription
Date The date you graded the item or changed the grade.
Last Edited By The name of the last user to edit the grade. When clicked, you can view the username and role of the person who edited the grade. If the score appears from an automatically graded test, the name is listed as Automatic.
Value The value of the grade as viewed in the Grade Center as well as the type of value and entry type, such as attempt grade and override grade. If you associated a rubric with the item, you can view it by clicking View Rubric.
Comments Any associated Feedback for User or Grading Notes.

The default view includes the two most recent actions on this grade. To view more, click View Complete History.

Grade History is a tool that tracks all changes to grades within the Grade Center. When Grade History is available, it displays a table of data detailing every grade change in the Grade Center to date. The Grade History table can be sorted to show items by column name, score, or date by clicking the column header name. The Grade History table can be filtered to display entries within a date range using Show Entries from Past, located at the top of the table.
