Link to grades

The My Grades tool gives students access to all of that module's Minerva grades in one place, making it easier for students to access grades and feedback.

Following the August 2021 upgrade, students can access My Grades for all of their modules from the Minerva home page. However, it's still a good idea to have a link to My Grades in the module for ease of access. A My Grades link has been added to the My Grades and Feedback menu item as part of the module template.

Time to achieve: 1 minute to check the availability of the My Grades link in your module, 5-10 minutes to familiarise yourself with the Grade Centre

Go to the My Grades and Feedback menu item, you should see a link to My Grades. Click the drop down menu next to My Grades. Select Edit. Ensure Available is set to Yes. Click Submit.

Change the availability of My Grades

By default, all Minerva marks will appear to students. Review the Grade Centre to hide columns from students if you don't want them to see marks yet. Note that you may need to repeat this if more marked items are added.

Go to the Grade Centre via the link in the Control Panel:

Access the Grade Centre

Review the columns. Any which you are not happy for students to see as soon as they are marked need to be hidden from students. Typically this would be for tests/assignments (including Turnitin) which are manually marked. To hide a column from students, select the drop down menu next to the column header and then Show/Hide to Users. Don't select Hide Column - this just hides the column from the staff view.

Show/hide column

Once you've done this you should notice a no entry sign appear in the column header:

A column hidden from students

You may also wish to hide the Total column as otherwise students could calculate their marks (the Total column includes marks from columns which are hidden to users). Hide the Total column by selecting the column header's drop down menu and Edit Column Information:

Editing the total column

Ensure Show this Column to Students is set to No and remember to Submit your changes.

Hiding the total column

When you want students to see the column you will need to change the columns back.

For most Grade Centre columns, you can show statistics (average and median) for the column to students in My Grades. To do this, click on the relevant column header in the Grade Centre and Edit Column Information:

Editing a column

Under Options, switch the setting Show Statistics (average and median) for this column to Students in My Grades to Yes. Click Submit to keep your changes.

Selection average and median

Repeat for all columns as necessary.
