Grading Blogs and Journals

You can grade participation in blogs and journals for individuals and groups.

Once a blog or journal topic is set to be graded, a grade column is automatically created in the Grade Center. Then, individual student and group entries can be graded from the blog or journal topic page, where all entries and comments can be referenced, as the grade is determined. An assigned grade can also be edited from the blog or journal topic page and the Grade Center is updated.

Students can view their blog or journal grades in the My Grades tool.
