If your district is using Classroom as a repository for assessment / assignment results, you will use the scoring tab to add students' results.
To accommodate different types of workflows users can manually score assignments in three ways from this tab:
- a single assignment at a time,
- multiple assignments in a grid,
- via a template that can be filled out in a spreadsheet application and uploaded via the interface.
There are also other Actions that allow you to configure the view to better suite your preference, as well as filters to easily find a particular assignment or student.

View Student Assignment Information:
There is a lot to see in this one view of what's happening in the gradebook. Along the top is assignment information; the due date of the assignment, the assignment name (the assignment description is visible if you hover over the assignment name) and the total points of the assignment. Along the left side is the list of students in the gradebook and the body of the page contains the student scores for the assignments.
The view of data can be changed to better accommodate your particular needs. The Actions available include:
Order Newest to Oldest / Oldest to Newest - The initial order the assignments are shown in is by Open date, Open time, Due date, Due time, Closed date, and Closed time. So you're always seeing the first assignment on the left. If you'd like the latest assignment to be the first assignment on the left, choose 'Order Newest to Oldest' from the Actions menu. Of course, you can always go back, by choosing 'Order Oldest to Newest' from the Actions menu. And if you need your assignments in a particular order, you can change up the Open date or Open time to do that.
Hide / Show Assignment Points - If you need a little more vertical room on your page, you can hide the assignment points by choosing 'Hide Assignment Points'
To view them, click 'Show Assignment Points'. When looking at the student scores the total points helps to put the student score in perspective.
Show Student Percent / Scores -
The intersection of the student name with the assignment column is the student score on the assignment. The view can be switched to display the percentage the student received by choosing 'Show Student Percent', and back again, by choosing 'Show Student Points'.
Score Single Assignment -
Click the assignment name to bring up a modal that enables you to score the assignment for each student. The modal displays the students on the left, and score boxes to the right. The assignment name, the cut scores and color bands associated, and a couple of action buttons are in the header of the modal.
When scoring individual assignments, click in the box and type in their score. The Tab key will get you to the next box; to move up a box hold down the Shift key and click the Tab key.
If you have an assignment that most students received the same score, click the Score All button and you'll now see a Score All Students box. Type in the score and click the button to the right of the score. This will give all students, who do not yet have a score, the score typed in the box.
To see more details about the Assignment, click the Assignment button and choose from a select list. The selection will navigate you to the that portion of the assignment itself.
Score Assignments (in Grid) / Overview -
This allows the user to score the student assignments in a grid, similar to the overall view, with the students on the left and the assignments along the top. The Actions button is available w/ much of the same functionality as in the overview. Click on the intersection of a student and assignment in this view and you can see more information, as well as add / update student scores and add notes about the students assignment.
To hide the Popover, click the Actions button and choose 'Hide Grading Popover'. This setting will be remember.
Use the arrow keys on the keyboard to quickly navigate through the grid. If you add a note to an assignment, use the mouse to click the next intersection to continue to add scores.
Click the chevron on the right of the column headers to sort the column, or pin the column to stay in place on the right or left. This allows you to see the information in the column, such as the student name) at all times, as you navigate around the page.
