Brightspace Fundamentals Series Workshop #5 - Gradebook

Brightspace Fundamentals Series Workshop #5 - Gradebook In-Person

This workshop is designed for instructors new to Brightspace. Deciding how you will assess and communicate performance is an important consideration for any course. Will you have final grades? How will grades be displayed to your learners? When- and how- will grades be released? These are questions an instructor needs to reflect on before they set up their grade book. This workshop is suitable for instructors teaching in any modality: face-to-face, hybrid, or online. 
This is the fifth workshop in the fundamental series: Navigation & Interface; Communication Tools; Authoring/Publishing Content; and Gradable Activities: Assigments, Discussions and Quizzes.
Prerequisite: Brightspace Navigation & Interface and at least one of the Gradable Activities Workshops, equivalent training from SUNY or experience using the Brightspace LMS. You will need to have gradable activties already created (quizzes, assignments, discussions) in a Brightspace course in order to attend this workshop.
