Custom Gradebook Settings

The fields available for customization are:

  • Include in MSPE - If enabled, final student scores and approved evaluation questions which are flagged for the MSPE will show in each student's MSPE export. Setting this field to Yes will also require the use of a grade matrix. See below.
  • Grading Description - This is included in the MSPE document and should not be left blank if the course is included in the MSPE.
  • Relative Value Calculation- This defines how the final grade is calculated. If you are using a Grade Matrix, this is the value that is sent to the Grade Matrix. The choices are:
    • Percentage and Raw Points
  • Final Grade - Set to Yes, to allow the final grade to be displayed.
  • Hide Final Grade from Students - Use this option to prevent students from seeing their final grade in the course.
