Concourse assignment grading quirk

October 8, 2009

The assignment tool provides for the electronic submission of well, assignments. Papers really. Some Instructors have accepted papers in multiple ways (hardcopies shoved under the office door, email attachments) while using the Assignment tool in Concourse as only 1 way students submit an assignment. It works. Until time to grade. The grades entered directly into the Concourse Gradebook tool into a column originally created by a gradeable assignment? Well, those grades are tending to disappear. Yes! As in not be saved to the database nor displayable to the student. Gone. Poof!

While waiting for the vendor to provide a fix for this, we need a reliable way to save Assignment grades. This is it: Always enter the grade for an assignment into the grading box within the Assignment Dropbox itself. NOT into the Gradebook.
