Admin Gradebook in Courseware


Account Administrators have the ability to set instructor permissions for editing Gradebook weights and scales. Let's look closely at the two options:

  • DISABLED: when an account administrators disables instructor access to edit grading settings, courses will have either the default or custom grading applied. ALL sections in the account using the course will automatically have Gradebook pages created with weighting; no changes will be made on the courses. Account administrators will set course grading scales.
  • ENABLED: when an account administrator enables instructor access to edit grading settings, educators may continue editing weights and scales or may apply account custom weights and scales per local policy.


How to access Admin Gradebook:

  1. Login as an Account Administrator.
  2. Click on Courseware and navigate to your Courseware Program.
  3. On Admin Center
  4. Click Gradebook Permissions, or Categories and Weighting, Grading Scales, or Track Credits. Refer to the Admin Gradebook Guide for details.

The administrative level functionality provides the ability to set account-wide standardization of Grading processes. Account administrators may set instructor permissions to customize category weights and scales for a course, as well as exemptions score and course category weights.

Gradebook Permissions

Gradebook permissions can be applied at the account level and at a program level. Each program can follow either the account-level permissions or can be set to custom to follow program-specific permissions.

In the account tab you can allow instructors, program administrators, and account administrators to edit Grading Scales, Categories and Weights, Credit Settings. You can edit permission for the account and by the Program level.


If a program is set to "Account," it will follow the Account Gradebook Permissions. If a program is set to "Custom," you can custom define the Gradebook Permissions.
