Grade Centre

Grade Centre is the tool for recording and managing your students' marks for assessments and their final grades.

Subject Coordinators are responsible for setting up the Grade Centre correctly and ensuring marks are entered appropriately – a properly set up Grade Centre alleviates many problems when finalising/transferring student grades.

Grade Centre tips

  1. In Grade Centre, each assessment item is represented by a column.  Columns for summative assessment tasks are created automatically from the Subject Outline.  A Calculated Grade column, which collates assessment marks (consistent with the Subject Outline) to provide an overall grade at the end of the session, is also automatically created. It is always worthwhile to check that the Grade Centre columns reflect the Subject Outline and that calculated columns operate as intended.
  2. It is highly recommended that marks be entered as assessments are marked throughout the session – as this helps students and can expose any problems in the Grade Centre set-up well ahead of grade transfer.
  3. If possible, avoid importing a Grade Centre from a previous subject site – most problems arise from Grade Centre imports.  Any such imports should be closely checked.
  4. The Grade Centre can provide useful reports on student attempts, overall test/survey results and grade distributions/histories, and analytical tools like Item Analysis.  For more info, contact:
  5. You can determine which marks you make visible to your students and when.  All automatically created columns are set to "not visible" by default.
