How to Set and Use the Grade Posting Policy "Manually Post Grades"

Purpose: In the New Gradebook, Grade Posting Policy determines how grades are hidden or posted for students from the instructor’s gradebook. “Manually Post Grades” allows instructors to hide scores from students and then post them all at will when ready. Students will only receive an email notification regarding updated grades when the instructor has opted to post the grades.

Instructors can set the grade post policy at the course-level so the entire gradebook is affected or at the assignment-level, so only one assignment has the implemented policy.

**Self-grading assessments, like multiple choice quizzes, will still post scores for students when completed, but if grading by the instructor is needed, grades will stay hidden from students until the instructor has posted on their own.**
