Grading periods allow you to view the Activities, Grades, People, and Editor by the specific grading periods. This allows you to view your students’ quarter grades. Semester grades will not be visible. After enabling grading periods in your course, you will need to associate your modules (folders) to the applicable grading period. For more information, review Associating your course modules to grading periods in Buzz.

Enabling grading periods in your Accelerate Education course:

Access your Accelerate Education course in Buzz.

Click Editor.

From the top toolbar, click Tools (wrench icon) and then click Course settings.

From the Grading periods card, check the box next to Use grading periods. Do not change any other setting.

Check the box next to Inherit activity grading period from top-most folder. This setting allows you to associate a grading period to a module and all the module’s activities (a real time saver!).
