(Instructor) Can I Add Tests or Assignments Completed Offline Into The Gradebook?

Platinum Education -

 Yes!  As an instructor, you can add scores for tests that were administered offline into the gradebook so they will be calculated in the same categories as tests taken online.

To do this, go to your Instructor home page inside EMSTesting or PlatinumTests, click on your class, and then select “View Gradebook”. 

Then you will want to click “+Add New Assignment” near the top-right of the page. 



This will cause an "Add Assignment" window to appear. Give your assignment a "Name". The “Type” dropdown will allow you to select how this assignment should be categorized within your “Grade Type Descriptions” from that particular class.


The optional field “Default Percentage” allows Instructors to assign a score to the assignment, which will give all students that grade for that assignment.  The defaulted value can still be changed for individual students by editing individual student scores.


This option can be particularly helpful if adding an assignment for attendance or class participation, where everyone may have gotten 100%, rather than changing each “0” to a “100” manually.


If you have any questions, do not hesitate to use the “Help” button or call Customer Support at 616-818-7877 and we’ll do what we can to assist.
