D2L gradebook response issue

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 17th December 2013

Significant number of faculty have reported issues with the D2L gradebook over the past several days.  In response to these incidents and also based on the advice of the MnSCU D2L Team, the grade book status icon has temporarily been turned off. This has improved the gradebook response time for all D2L users. The status icon will be turned on again after December 27th, 2013. If you are still experiencing slow gradebook response times, please email d2l@stcloudstate.edu. Thank you for your patience and understanding

grade items not in the correct categories when I copy them to a new course

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 9th August 2013

Q: Why aren’t the grade items in the correct categories when I copy them to a new course?
A: https://d2l.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1390/

Issue: In the Copy Course Components tool, if you select individual grade items rather than copying ALL grade items, the grade items do not stay associated with the correct categories. (This issue exists in the current version 10.1 SP9)
Workaround: In the Copy Course Components tool, copy all grade items into the new course and then simply remove the ones you don’t want from the new course.
Note: This issue only exists for Copy Course Components. If you export selected grade items, the grade category associations are retained accurately.

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 21st May 2013

Q:
I have an extra credit assignment that is not adding to the final grade for the class. I would like to make sure that this credit gets added into the final grade. My email is xxxx@stcloudstate.edu and phone number is (320) XXX-XXXXA:I fixed the issue preventing the extra credit items from calculating.
