This page describes how to add a grade item to the gradebook; a grade item is the recommended method for recording exam marks.
Recording exam marks in Myplace
Assessments that are submitted or performed outside of Myplace can be represented in Myplace in one of two ways:
- a grade item which can hold marks only
- an offline assignment which can hold marks and feedback
It is understood that most departments/Schools return only general feedback to students on exams - in line with the minimum requirements of the University's Assessment and Feedback Policy - in which case a grade item should be sufficient to store exam marks. If personalised feedback is to be given on exam performance, the use of an offline assignment to store marks along with the feedback would be advised.
Visibility of Exam Marks
Exam marks must not be visible to students before their class has been published in Pegasus.
Before uploading marks to the grade item in Myplace, you must hide the grade item. See the section Before Uploading Exam Marks on this page.
