Grade Centre

Are you making the most of Grade Centre?

Grade Centre can be used to efficiently record assessment results and calculate final grades. By eliminating or limiting the use of spreadsheets, you can also improve the management and security of your grades.


View Grade Centre by tutorial, seminar, and practical groups

Smart Views allow you to easily filter your Grade Centre to speed up the entry of marks and checking student submissions. This video shows you how to use Smart Views for your contact, tutorial, practical or seminar groups (YouTube, 2m 19s).

Course site design tips – Weekly structure

To provide an overview of the course and reduce the time it takes students to find resources, it is best practice to have only one learning resource folder per week or module, which includes all relevant content. The folder should be titled with the week number and a description of the topic. 

Watch the video to learn more about the course guidelines around weekly structure (YouTube, 2m 28s).
