A moderated assignment supports up to two provisional grades and one moderator grade. However, provisional grades are not included in the Gradebook and are only visible to moderators in the Moderate page.
Students cannot view any comments or grades until final grades are posted to the Gradebook. You can either select grades directly in the Moderate page, or you can select grades when reviewing the moderated assignment submission and comments in SpeedGrader.
Courses with Multiple Moderators
An assignment supports only one moderator grade, which can be edited or overwritten by any user with the moderate grades permission. However, sometimes a course may contain more than one user with permission to moderate grades If more than one moderator exists in a course, you may want to discuss a policy for your course as to which of you will control official grade posting for the assignment.
- Moderated grades can only be managed directly through the Moderate page. Any grades added to the Gradebook before the moderated assignment's grades have been posted will be overwritten.
- Once grades are posted, the grade in the Moderate page cannot be changed; all content is considered read-only for historical reference. However, after final grades have been posted, grades can be changed in the Gradebook, if necessary. The Gradebook History page records all grade changes in the Gradebook and can be accessed at any time.
