Release/Unrelease Final Grades: Learn@UCO (D2L) Gradebook


This guide provides step-by-step instructions for course instructors to release (aka: show) or unrelease (aka: hide) current final grades to students. This can be done at any point in the semester or can be kept automatically updated from the start. 


Release Final Grades Automatically and/or switch Final Grade column to release

Instructors can choose to release students' calculated final grades or their adjusted final grades. Additionally, instructors can make the choice for final grades to be kept visible to students and updated automatically throughout the semester. This will allow students to view their current final grade at any time during the semester but it will only include items already graded by the instructor. 

  1. Log in to your D2L course and select Assessment > Grades.
  2. Open Settings
  3. Select the Calculation Options tab. 
  4. Scroll down to the Final Grades section and select to release either the Calculated Final Grade or the ​​​​​​​Adjusted​​​​​​​ Final Grade. 
  5. Select the checkbox to Automatically Release Final Grade.  
    Note: If an instructor selects to automatically release final grade after the start of the semester, the instructor will also need to manually release the final grade before they will appear on the students' grade book view. 
  6. Click Save then click Close
