As we enter into the midterm grading period, it’s a good time to evaluate your use of the UTC Learn Grade Center. Why is now a good time? Because students want to be able to keep track of their grades throughout the semester. Using the grade center helps them stay informed and engaged in the class. Whether you are you an avid user or just getting started, the Walker Center for Teaching and Learning is here to help you.
If you are new to the grade center, start out simple. You can create a column in the grade center where you can manually add the students’ mid-term grades. Watch this video to learn more about navigating the UTC Learn Grade Center.
If you have been using the grade center for a while, now is a good time to give your grade center a “tune up”. Here are some tips to consider when reviewing your grade center setup.
- Did you import your course from a previous semester? If you did, you may have extra columns that do not apply to your current course.
- Verify that the total points available in your course match the total point values you are using for this semester.
- Are you having UTC Learn calculate your mid-term and final grades? If so, make sure your tests, assignments, and columns are all in the correct column (Manage; Column Organization) to insure correct calculations.
Whatever your need, the Walker Center for Teaching and Learning offers online tutorials, group training sessions, and individual consultations to help you get the most from your course in UTC Learn. Let us know how we can help you today!
