DLE Weekly Update: How to Hide All Grades and Manually Publish Quiz Grades
Posted on Friday, April 1st, 2022
Reminder: Emergency Support Week (Final Exams for Winter 2022)
Due to staffing issues, the Digital Learning Environment (DLE) team will NOT be able to cover the extended 7 am-10 pm emergency support window this semester (Winter 2022).
Last semester (Fall 2021) no emergency calls from instructors came in after 5 pm, or over the 2 weekends (5 interactions happened during that time and none were emergencies).
Prior to the exam week, the DLE team will communicate through the upcoming DLE Weekly Updates ways to solve common issues that have been reported to date (how to reset a quiz attempt, how to allow an extra attempt, what to do if a learner cannot submit their quiz attempt, how to make a quiz available, how to troubleshoot Zoom issues, etc). These issues can be avoided with proper preparation and testing. Of these reported issues, only the issues with the quiz availability and Zoom require immediate intervention. However, most Zoom issues have to do with the learner’s connection and cannot be fixed by DLE.
During the exam week, the DLE team will use the case management system as the only point of access to emergency support. Instructors can send an emergency email to email@example.com with their phone number and will receive a call back as soon as possible, between 8 am and 5 pm. The DLE team will NOT be taking direct phone calls during this time. A banner will be displayed in Brightspace during the exam week with this procedure.
For any questions on this, please contact Michel Marcheterre, Digital Learning Environment Strategist, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to Hide All Grades from the Student View
Do you ever wonder if there is any quick way to hide ALL the grades from your students in one Brightspace course?
Unfortunately, Brightspace does not have a quick way to make the gradebook unavailable to your students, with a click of a button, but for sure you have the option to temporarily restrict your students’ access to their grades when there is a valid reason to do so.
This article describes the steps you need to take in order to make sure you hide all the areas where your students might be able to view their grades.
Manually Publishing Quiz Grades to the Gradebook
In addition to the current KB article describing how to manually publish quiz grades to the gradebook, we now have a new Youtube video that would help make this process easier to understand and follow.
