Letter Grades without Schemes

If you are using Desire2Learn's grade tools to share offline grades and want to post a final letter grade without creating a grade scheme, you can create an item specifically for this purpose via a text grade item. On the Manage Grades page, click the button to create a New Item and then select the Text item.

Once created you can enter any text into the grade field for each student. The item does not have any points possible, so it will not affect the Final Calculated Grade.

NOTE: If you use this for a class final grade, you should not release the Final Calculated Grade. Otherwise students might get confused by seeing two items labeled final grade.
