Can you put notes into the grade book? If I change a grade I would like to put a note by it as to why.
Hello there, Timmy Ross...
Absolutely! Check these Guides out (depending on which version of the Gradebook you are using):
How do I use the Notes column in the Gradebook?
How do I use the Notes column in the New Gradebook?
I hope this helps, Timmy. Please let us know if you have any other questions...thanks!
To add to what Chris said, there is only one "note" column so you'd have to put all notes for all assignments here if that's what you are wanting to do. The other thing is that students can't see anything you put in the notes column, which might be good or bad, depending on what you want to happen.
What I do is use the "comments" area of an assignment to put information about why a grade was changed. By doing this, I can see for that specific assignment (and student) why I changed the grade and the date (it's automatically recorded). In addition, the student can see this information as well, so there is complete transparency with their grade. If you're interested in doing this, see the following guide - How do I leave feedback comments for student submissions in SpeedGrader?
