2. Select a certain assignment to grade all student submissions on this assignment.
3. Select a student and an assignment to grade a specific assignment for an individual student.

Instructors can export the GradeBook into a CSV file for further review and data analysis.
Edit Grade Conversion
Edit Grade Conversion appears in the drop-down underneath Other GradeBook Options.
It can be used to convert grade display types to any of the following: Letter Grade, Letter Grade with +/-, Pass/Fail, Honors/High Pass/ Pass/ Fail, or instructors can create their own.
To apply these grade display types to a GradeBook item, click the gear icon next to the item name in the GradeBook table. Then select "Edit Grade Display Type". You will be able to select a type you have created. By default, grades are displayed in the point value format.

GradeBook Settings are found underneath the Other GradeBook Options tab within the GradeBook.
