How can I transfer the Gradebook from previous courses to a new course?

Note: After the upgrade to Sakai 11 for the summer 2017 course sites, and all earlier sites, the old Gradebook (named Gradebook Classic in Sakai 11) will be the tool you see in your course menu. All Gradebook data from your previous courses will appear in Sakai 11 in the Gradebook Classic tool.

At any time after the upgrade you can add the new Gradebook tool to any SU17 or previous course. You add the new Gradebook tool in the same way you add any tool, via Site Info > Manage Tools (as opposed to Edit Tools in Sakai 10). 

Go to Site Info.

Select the Site Info tool from the Tool Menu of your site. Site Info offers several options for managing your course site.

Click Manage Tools.

Select Gradebook.

Select Continue.

Once you add the new Gradebook you will see the same items, categories, etc. that you had created in the old Gradebook because the two tools are linked.

Note: For the fall semester (F17) the old Gradebook tool (Gradebook Classic) will not appear in any of your new courses but the new Gradebook tool will. However, if you add the new Gradebook tool to the source course from which you are importing material the Gradebook Classic information will transfer to that tool. Then you simply choose the new Gradebook tool in the Import from Site list of tools from which you wish to import.
