The Gradebook Summary widget provides an easy way for students to view their current calculated course grade and/or letter grade in all of their course sites. The widget may be added to the Overview tool of Home (Isidore Home). When the widget loads, grades appearing in the widget are blurred for privacy reasons. You may click on the "Show Grades" button to reveal all course grades, or "Hide Grades" to blur them again.

Some course sites may not appear in the Gradebook Summary list. If an individual has the "Student" role in a course site and the site is published, it will appear in their list. However, instructors may choose whether to use Isidore's Gradebook tool and whether to make course grade percentages and/or letter grades available.

Important Notes:

  • The calculated course grades in Isidore do not represent official course grades. To view official course grades, please use the Flyer Student Services tab in Porches.
  • The calculated course grade may be inaccurate if there are ungraded or missing items in the Gradebook.
