Desire2Learn does not allow for instructors to truly upload Letter Grades into the Desire2Learn grade book. For instructors who wish to have a letter grade column displayed in their Desire2Learn course, it is recommended that they select Letter Grades as the grade scheme for the course. Choosing Letter Grades allows for final numeric grades to be automatically converted to letter grades within Desire2Learn.
However, if an instructor would like to upload a final letter grade, computed outside of the Desire2Learn grade book, this can be accomplished by uploading grades as a text grade. Please follow the instructions below to understand this process.
In order to successfully upload your file, you will need to format columns as shown in the image below:
Click the Continue button on the Step 2: Errors and Warnings found screen.
*Note: If you receive errors, please refer to the formatting image above. If you continue to have trouble, a useful method is to download the sample file available on the Step 1: Select file to import page, then enter your grades information.
Grades will appear in the grade book in a column named whatever text you had before Text Grade in your upload file (generally "Final").
If you are using this grade column when you are exporting grades for Web Grading, be sure to select this column rather than the usual Final Calculated Grade or Final Adjusted Grade.
