The Gradebook automatically calculates a course grade based on the number of points scored out of the total points submitted (i.e., a running grade). Ungraded items will not be included in the course grade calculation, so the course grade column will not necessarily reflect the student's true score. If you want to include ungraded items in the course grade calculation, you must enter a 0 (zero) for those items.
By default, the option for displaying a course grade is disabled,
and students see only their scores for each item. To display a course
grade to students, click
Course Grade Options, check the box
Display course grade to students now, and then click

Save Changes. The log of the student's grade will be updated to reflect the change and the author.
Note: You will have to delete the manually entered
grade and click
Save Changes for each grade you want to change back.
