Manual grade items can be used to record grades for activities that are not undertaken through FLO (eg contribution to tutorial discussion, oral presentation). Most FLO activities you set up will appear in the Gradebook automatically (note that if you
set up a forum and want to grade it, you will have to set it to be rated).
In the Gradebook, click on the Setup tab, then the Gradebook setup link
Click on the Add grade item button, which will appear under the list of assessments
