Calculating Final Grades in D2L

This document illustrates how to calculate final grades in D2L.

This document will cover how to calculate the final grade for your students at any given time, and how to keep the final grade up-to-date the entire semester, automatically.

1. From within your course, click on Grades

2. From either the Calculated Final Grade or Adjusted Final Grade, click on the drop-down arrow and select Grade All
