D2L - Associate Gradebook Item

This document shows users how to associate a D2L item with a grade book item.

Note: You can only associate a grade book item and a D2L item (Discussions, Dropbox, Quizzes) from the D2L item. It cannot be done in the grade book. 

To start, you will need to go to the item you want to associate in the grade book.



Discussions:

Go to the Discussion Topic you want to associate and select Edit Topic from the drop down menu. 

Click on the Assessment tab. 


Discussions - Edit Topic - Assessment tab


You will see the section Grade Item. From there you can click on the drop down arrow and select the grade item you want to associate this discussion with. You can also select [New Grade Item] if you want to create a new grade book item. 

Before you will be allowed to save, you will also have to set the Score Out Of by entering a point total into the box. 

Hit Save and Close.

When you go back to the Discussions page you will see that beneath your discussion it will now say Includes Assessment.

You will see the section Grade Item. From there you can click on the drop down arrow and select the grade item you want to associate this dropbox with. You can also select [New Grade Item] if you want to create a new grade book item.

When you go back to your Dropbox you will see that the folder you just associated now has a ruler symbol next to it. That means that the dropbox Includes Assessment

If you hover over the symbol it will tell you what grade item your dropbox folder is associated with. 



Quizzes:

Go to the Quiz you want to associate and select Edit from the drop down menu. 

Click on the Assessment tab.

You will see the section Grade Item. From there you can click on the drop down arrow and select the grade item you want to associate this quiz with. You can also select [add Grade Item] if you want to create a new grade book item. 

If you check the box Allow automatic export to grades, your scores will automatically be calculated and put into your grade book (assuming you have a quiz that can be auto-graded). 

Hit Save and Close



Now if you go back to the Manage Grades tab in your grade book, you will see which of your grade items now have associations.
