Grade Book View

For every class you teach on Vocabulary.com, you will have the option of viewing all assignments in a Grade Book view. Grade Book view is only available to subscribers of the Educator Edition.

To see Grade Book view, first, go to the My Classes page. Then, select one of your classes and click the Grade Book tab at the top.

On the Grade Book page, you'll see a list of all of the assignments your class has worked on and the grades each student received for each assignment. We show all assignments, including Practice assignments, Quizzes, and Spelling Bees.

 Grade Book view

Across the top of your grade book, you'll see a column for each assignment you've given your class. You'll also see a row for each of the students in your class.

In the grid, you'll see the grade for each student for every assignment. Green numbers were completed on time, and red numbers were completed late. Hover over each number to get more information about how late each student was. If a number is gray, it's because the assignment isn't due yet, so the grade doesn't count towards the student's average.

Below the grade book, you will see several options for grading your assignments. This allows you to change the metric you wish to grade on, the credit students receive if they complete an assignment late, and the weight each assignment type will be given. To change the metric you wish to grade on, you can click the drop-down menu below Grade On.

For Practice assignments, you have the option of grading on Progress or Mastery. For Quizzes and Spelling Bees, you have the option of grading on Score or Progress. When you change the grading metric, this will apply the change to all assignments of that particular type (e.g. Practice, Quiz, Spelling Bee).

You can also adjust the credit students receive if they are late. By default, these values are set to 100%, meaning students will not receive a penalty if they are late. Changing this percentage will adjust the scores accordingly for students who were late or still have not completed the assignment. When you change the Late Credit, this will apply the change to all assignments of that particular type (e.g. Practice, Quiz, Spelling Bee). 

You can also apply a weight to each activity type. By default, all the activity types are weighted equally. When you change the weight, this will apply the change to all assignments of that particular type (e.g. Practice, Quiz, Spelling Bee). 

To export your grades, you can click the grey Download button at the top right above the grade table. This will export your grades to a CSV file.
