How do I manage and submit final grades?

During the summer of 2017, we released a new Buzz UI, giving you the same features and functionality with a cleaner, simpler user experience!

Until all users have switched to the new UI, our Help Center articles will include information for both. 

Click the header below that aligns with the Buzz UI version you are using (Old UI or New UI); if you don't know which version you are using, review the differences and/or contact your system admin or Agilix account manager.

Old UI

Use the Final Grades screen to review and adjust calculated grades, create and apply additional grading schemes, close enrollments, and submit final grades.

Open the Final Grades screen

  1. Open the Performance tool from the Main Menu and select the desired course.
  2. Review the grades you've entered to ensure they're ready for submission.
  3. Click the final grades icon in the toolbar.
Open the Final Grades screen

Manage and submit final grades

On the Final Grades screen you can:

  1. Use Options to specify what data you want displayed in the columns and use Grading Schemes to create new and edit existing grading models.
  2. Filter the results by Period or Group. "Periods" are defined by date ranges within a course for which you can provide final grades; this allows you to divide grades by date ranges without building additional courses. If you filter by Period and submit, you are only submitting final grades for that date range. (How do I create multiple grading periods within one course?)
  3. Use Submit Checked to save the displayed grades as final and submit them to any integrated SIS or other system for all checked students in the list.
  4. Use Mark Enrollments Complete to end enrollments for all checked students in the list. Doing this removes the course from students' active enrollments, so they won't see it in their Course Chooser or on their Home page; they can access it under previous courses in the Activities tool.
  5. Indicate how to handle unscored activities by choosing Zero All Unscored Activities or Excuse All Unscored Activities.
  6. Indicate which grading schemes you want used in determining final grades. For each student, Buzz takes the highest grade from among all of the checked grading schemes.
  7. Modify the Grade to Submit for each student without impacting the calculations.

What if an instructor accidentally marks enrollments complete? How does he go about getting those students back into his grade book?

Robyn Hanan

I had a teacher mark a students grades as final, but wants to reverse that. How can we reverse the final grade process?

Jeff Lockard

We have teachers reporting that the checkmarks next to all Students in the class get checked when using the "Zero All Unscored Activities" radio button, even though only a few of the students were checked prior to clicking the radio button.

This is obviously dangerous and appears to be an issue with this native functionality that is broken.  Please advise if this is something that needs a separate ticket or if there is some configuration on our end causing this to happen.

Hello Jeff,

What you are seeing is the currently intended behavior when the radio button is toggled between those settings and this has been the behavior since the release of the current UI. We will take your feedback into consideration however for possible inclusion on the continued updates in the new UI.

Is there a course or permission setting that would cause the Mark Enrollments Complete button to not appear for a specific course/teacher?

Brad Marshall

If the teacher does not have the "owner" permission in a course, then they cannot change the status of a student. In this case, we hide the button because it is not a permission the user has.

Thanks Brad!
