UMD eGradebook Guidelines

[Notes by Helen Mongan-Rallis, based on ITSS workshop by Shelly McCauley Jugovich, February 13, 2007. Last updated: February 13, 2007

  1. To get to egradebook, go to UMD home page and then type in "egradebook: at the end of the UMD url ie: http://www.d.umn.edu/egradebook
  2. This opens a login screen --> login using your UMD x.500 login and password
  3. To log out, you MUST quite the browser, as there is no logout command
  4. Once a faculty member logs in, you will see courses that you have for which you can create a gradebook, or you can click on the link to create a new gradebook
  5. When you create a new gradebook:
    1. the first box is for the course identifier e.g. educ
    2. the second box it for the course number e.g. 1001
    3. once you have entered the above, you will be prompted to enter the section number e.g. 001
    4. you can copy a gradebook from previous course, by selecting "use preferences from: and copying from a past gradebook. You can bring in an old gradebook and update and change it, rather than creating from scratch.
  6. Gradebook is automatically populated for you (you don't have to enter students in manually).
  7. Very important: Once you have made changes, it is very important to click on the "update" button.
