Instructors can change a student's score on any graded activity.
This is only a change to the percentage allocated for the assignment and does not adjust the original point total for the activity. Instructors have the option to make comments about the change that are included with the student notification. Students receive notifications for all adjustments made to their original scores when they log in to their course.
To make a change to a score for any assessment or graded assignment locate the score in your grade book and click on the percentage for that activity. Then click View Student Work:
In View Student Work click Change Score:
On the next screen adjust the percentage score and, optionally, add a comment the student will see along with adjusted score:
In View Student Work both the original and adjusted score are recorded; the original points remain:
In View Student Work the changed score can also be removed or amended again; if the change is removed the score reverts to the original score for the assignment.
In the Gradebook the adjusted score is indicated by an asterisk. Click the score to see the details. Click View Student Work to change an adjusted score or revert to the original score:
