You can edit a student’s score on an entire activity or on an individual question within an activity.


Edit overall activity score or category score (i.e., a cell in the gradebook)

Here's how to edit a cell in the gradebook. It is recommended that you wait until after the due date to edit grades in this manner because the student's score will become locked. That is, the student's score will no longer increase as they continue working.

Open the gradebook

Click the Grades icon in the left navigation menu of your main course page.

Click "Turn editing on" in the upper right corner

Enter the desired score in the desired cell or cells

After entering the scores, scroll to the bottom of the page and click Update. Or, if your cursor is still visible in the cell you just typed in, you can press Enter on your keyboard to save.


Edit individual question score (i.e., a single question for a single student)

Note: If you are editing a student's score on a Mobile Assignment, follow the instructions in the help article Changing Scores in Mobile Assignments.

Here's how to edit a score on a single question for a single student. This can be done before the due date, but you may want to wait until the student is finished with all parts of that question.

Open the gradebook

Click the Grades icon in the left navigation menu of your main course page.

Click on a score

View student's work

You are now seeing the instructor view of a particular student’s assignment, which does not have the same functionality as the student view. The primary difference is that instructors always have the solution tab available but no check-answer button.

Click the pencil icon to edit a score.

The pencil icon has a mouseover tooltip of "edit scores".

Edit score and save

Enter the desired score (from 0 to 100) and click the Save icon.

The save icon has a mouseover tool tip of "Save changes".
