Brightspace CI: Finalize Grades

Intended Audience: Collaborative Instructors
This article pertains to courses taught by local teachers as part of a collaborative partnership.


The following page provides instructions for collaborative instructors on how to finalize grades in Brightspace and update a student's final grade in the Student Learning Portal (SLP). It is crucial for instructors to follow the outlined steps at the end of each term to ensure accurate reporting on student completions.


  1. First, tap the Grades tab in the top menu bar within a course. 
  2. Next, scroll to the right to locate the "COMPLETED" column to select the drop-down and then choose Enter Grades.
    The Grades page is shown with the table scrolled to the right. Arrows point to the Grades menu option at the top of the page, to the scroll bar and another to the expanded completed column option Enter Grades.
  3. Instructors can finalize grades for all students by selecting the check all box at the top right corner of the table or for a few students by placing a checkmark next to specific students. Once they have selected the students, enter the number "1" in the "Grade" column, tap Save and Close to finalize grades.
    The Grade Item Completed page is shown with arrows pointing to the Grade column and to the Save and Close button at the bottom of the table.
  4. As a result, the student's final grades will be updated in the SLP. An extra 12-24 hours can be required to allow the Student Learning Portal (SLP)  to sync with Brightspace Learning Management System (LMS) during times of high submissions or web traffic.
