Cumulative Average and Percent Complete

Back to top

The cumulative average is your grade for the course. If the categories (such as Major and Minor grades or Assignment and Exam grades) are weighted, this grade reflects that weighted average. The percent complete chart tells you the percentage of gradeable activities you have completed.

Link to View Learning Objective Mastery

Back to top

While grades show you one aspect of your progress, you may also want to see which areas you are mastering, and in which areas you should seek additional help. To ensure that you are staying on track and mastering the course content, click the Learning objective mastery link. This displays a screen which displays each of the course objectives and a chart to show you which objectives you have mastered to date, as well as additional links to view details on the course materials related to each objective. 

Link to Student Activity Time Summary

Back to top

This link takes you to view the time that you have spent on each item in the course. This is organized by day, and then listed by Item Name followed by location in the Syllabus. 

Points and Percentage by Category

Back to top

The points and percentages by category figure shows you how you are doing in each category. For example, for the example course shown below, there are three categories: 

Grades by category

The average grade for activities in the Assignments and Quizzes category is 97%, while the average grade for activities in the Projects category is 96%. 

To calculate the cumulative grade, each average is multiplied by its grade weight percentage (see the example Weighting Scale above) and these numbers will be added together. 

Gradeable Activities Listed by Category

Back to top

Each activity is listed under its category, along with where it is located in the course. Double-click the activity to view additional details. For example, if the activity is a quiz, you may review the results (if the quiz is configured to allow this). 

Scores and Status

Back to top

The scores and status of each activity display in the Score column: 

Submitted Submitted, pending grading. This icon displays once you have submitted an assignment or an assessment, but the grade has not been returned to you.
Grade Grade on the activity. Your grade displays once the instructor has returned your grades. In some cases, this will display as soon as you take a quiz or test, but in other cases, instructors will return grades to all students at one time. 
Retry Retry allowed. If your instructor allows you to retry an assessment (either quiz or exam) or assignment, you may retry the test or resubmit the assignment, and the new grade will replace the grade that currently displays. (Note: Retry is different than retaking an assessment. Some assessments are configured to be retaken as many times as you need to review the materials. A Retry is given specifically by an instructor to a specific student for one additional attempt). 
Excused Excused from activity. An instructor may choose to excuse you from turning in an assignment or taking an assessment. In this case, you do not have to submit the assignment or assessment, and no grade will be averaged in to your cumulative score.
