Grades & Editing Groups

Common Question - What happens if I move a student to a new group?

  • Discussion posts remain in the old group and do not count towards a student's grade if the forum or topic is associated with a grade item. The student must satisfy the discussion post requirements in the new section. You can override a grade using the Grades tool.
  • Assignments folder submissions submitted for the old group remain with the old group. The student receives the grade achieved by the new group on any group Assignments folders. You can change the student's grade back to the original group’s grade in the Grades tool
