Each semester you must continuously record your students’ grades in each course.  If you record grades in a D2L gradebook, it handles the calculations and provides your students with an up-to-date grade report.  If you use D2L’s grades toolset, your students know how they are doing in the class at any time throughout the semester.  Once you build a gradebook in a course, it copies along with other course content into subsequent semesters.  With upgrades coming on August 8th, D2L’s grades tool works efficiently with their rubric toolset as well.
