Gradebooks for learning mastery for both teachers and students

Enable “Learning Mastery Gradebook” and “Student Learning Mastery Gradebook” to give both teachers and students access to an overview of assessments and mastery of different outcomes.

Teachers and students get access to different views, but both need to be enabled and switched to. Both the teacher view and the student view are adapted to work regardless if the course is graded A-F, VG-U or P/F.

Enable the Learning Mastery Gradebooks for teachers and students 

For teachers and students to be able to view the Learning Mastery Gradebook from "Grades" you need to enable them in the feature options of your course. You reach feature options from your course settings. See the heading "Feature options" on the Course settings page

Enable the feature options: 

  • Learning Mastery Gradebook

  • Student Learning Mastery Gradebook.

Note: Teachers and students have separate Learning Mastery Gradebooks and both need to be enabled.

In the course menu option “Settings” the tab “Feature Options” is selected, and the feature options “Learning Mastery Gradebook” and “Student Learning Mastery Gradebook” are enabled.

Using the Learning Mastery Gradebook 

When you have enabled the settings for the Learning Mastery Gradebook, all teachers of the course will get access to a new Gradebook view in the course menu option "Grades". You get to the new view by opening the drop-down menu "Gradebook" and selecting "Learning mastery…".

Outcomes in the Learning Mastery Gradebook 

In the Learning Mastery Gradebook, you find all the outcomes as well as the student’s mastery level for each outcome in a table. Just as in the regular Gradebook, each row is a student, but the columns here correspond to outcomes instead of assignments or quizzes.  

If an outcome is missing in this view, you can read the guide about adding outcomes .

The Learning Mastery Gradebook works regardless if the course is Pass/Fail, A-F or VG-U. This means that the view only shows on which level the mastery is.  

There are four levels that the students can achieve:  

  • Exceeds Mastery

  • Meets Mastery

  • Near Mastery

  • Well Below Mastery.

The teacher’s view of the students.

Everything above mastery will be shown as "Exceeds Mastery" 

If you have set mastery as E, on an A-F scale

  • E will be shown as "Meets Mastery"

  • D-A will be shown as "Exceeds Mastery"

  • F will be shown as "Well Below Mastery".

If you want to use "Near Mastery", you can add a level to your outcome between passing and failing (for example Fx). Read more about adding levels in the guide about adding outcomes .

How the Student Learning Mastery Gradebook looks for the students 

The students find the Student Learning Mastery Gradebook from the same course menu option as the teacher, but the view looks different from the teacher’s view. The students can see their results and mastery level by selecting the tab "Learning Mastery” from “Grades".

The student view for outcomes is selected, where the mastery is shown for the three outcomes of the course.

When students open an outcome, they can see their results in more detail as well as which assignments are aligned to the outcome. Students see which outcomes they have mastered, based on the calculation method of the outcome, and if there are upcoming published assignments aligned to that outcome.
