What should I know?
Step 1: Open the gradebook in the desired module
Step 2: Change the gradebook view to Grid view
Step 3: Create a new column in the Gradebook by hovering on one of the lines between gradebook items until you see a plus icon
Step 4: Click the plus icon and select add item
Step 5: Set up the new column with a name, mark type (100, 23 to alphanumeric, etc.) and mark category and click save
If you have more than one item to upload (e.g. 2 separate exams) you will need to create a new gradebook item for each
Step 6: Click the download button (looks like a rectangle with a downward arrow) next to the settings cog button
Step 7: In Data, select Full gradebook, in File Type select CSV, and for Save location select My device. Finally, click Download
Step 8: Open the downloaded spreadsheet and input the grades from the results spreadsheet(s) and save the change
Make sure the rows match (for instance, the CSV from the module page might have preview users listed, but the grades you’re inputting might not).
Step 9: Back on the gradebook screen, click the upload button next to the download button (looks like a rectangle with an upward arrow)
Step 10: Drag and drop or click Upload local file and locate the completed CSV file from your file explorer, then wait for it to process
Step 13: Click Upload at the bottom
