The Gradebook collects assessment items that have been graded from the various parts of FLO and allows you to view them, sort them into categories and calculate a final grade (topic total). When you add a graded activity to a topic, the Gradebook automatically creates space for the grades it will produce and automatically adds the grades when they are generated.
Each topic requires someone to calculate the final grade, which for many topics will be a simple process. The Gradebook also has several options to control what students can and can't see in the gradebook.
Setting up the Gradebook
All grades recorded in FLO through an activity (eg assignments, quizzes) will appear automatically in the Gradebook.
Warning: Wherever possible it is better to enter grades through the activity
instead of in the gradebook. Any grade entered in the Gradebook will
always override a grade entered through the activity – regardless if you
meant it to or not.
