Grading Assignments

Many activities on the course page have their own grading interfaces, the most commonly used are Assignments and Quizzes.  Grades entered into the Assignment or Quiz grading interfaces are automatically sent to the central Gradebook. See Assignment Grading for details on how to use the Assignment grading interface.  See this page on how Quizzes are graded.
