Grade an assignment

You and your teaching assistants can enter grades in the Assignments grading tool. Each grader needs a G Suite for Education account.

Change the grade denominator

The default grade denominator is 100. You can change it to any whole number greater than zero. You can change the grade denominator at any time, but the change affects only unreturned assignments. Returned assignments save their original denominator.

You can return an assignment without a grade. However, the LMS can’t distinguish between ungraded and unsubmitted assignments.
