The instructions below assume that you have already created a Grade Item in the Grades tool and an Assignment Submission Folder. If you have not done this, please follow the documentation for Creating a Grade Item first then Create an Assignment.
Select Activities from the Navigation Bar, then select Assignments.
Click on the context menu next to the Assignment you wish to associate with a grade item and select Edit Assignment.
In the Grade Out of field, click Ungraded. Enter a points value. If there’s also an associated grade item, maintain consistency by matching the value of the Out Of field to the grade item’s Max Points value in Grades. Make sure the out of score also matches your syllabus.
Click In Gradebook, then Edit or Link to Existing and either:
Create and link to a new grade item.
This will create a new grade item with the same name as your new assignment with the point value set in the Grade Out Of field in the previous step.
Click Choose Grade Category.
In the Grade Category dropdown menu choose an existing Grade Category or select No Category.
Click Change Grade Type & Scheme. Note: Only Numeric or Selectbox grade items can be associated with assignment. Choose either:
Numeric Grade Item: Grade items by assigning a value out of a specified total number of points. Optional: Select a Grade scheme for this grade item. Default scheme is %. Click OK.
Selectbox: Grade users by selecting the grade scheme level that best matches their achievement. Select a Grade scheme for this grade item. If you need to create a specific scheme for this assignment, follow the steps on the Grading Schemes page. Click OK.
(Recommended) Link to an existing grade item. This will allow you to choose any grade items not associated to other activities. Note: Only numeric and selectbox grade items can be associated with assignment.
Before you click Save and Close, ensure that the Assignment Name, Grade Item, and Out Of points value all correspond with what is listed in your syllabus and the grade item in the Grades tool. Click Save and Close.
From the list of Assignments, we can now see that most of the Assignments have been associated with a grade item as indicated by the award ribbon icon. Note: this will also appear for when points and/or a rubric is associated with an assignment folder.
Repeat the steps above for any Assignments that you wish to associate with grade items.
Confirm the Grade Item Association in the Grades Tool
Select Activities from the Navigation Bar, then select Grades.
From Manage Grades within the Grades tool, you can verify that the Grade Item has been associated with an Assignment.
