  • When manually entering a course grade, you must use the appropriate grade type for the Gradebook schema you have selected. For example, if the course is graded on a simple letter grade scale, you will only be able to enter the letters A, B, C, D, or F. If the course is graded on a standard letter grade scale, you will also be able to add  +  (plus sign) or  -  (minus sign) to the letter grade. If the course is graded on a Pass/Not pass scale, you will only be able to enter the letters P or N.
  • A numerical value for the override can be entered, however the value will be mapped to the letter grade scale.
