Instructors have the ability to export final grades from the gradebook in D2L to MyBlugold CampS. After grades are imported in MyBlugold CampS, final grades will automatically be filled in for each student.
This page includes information on:
- D2L Course Requirements
- Potential Errors
- Exporting Final Grades from D2L to MyBlugold CampS
- Importing Final Grades into MyBlugold CampS
- D2L gradebook must be set up and final grades must exist in the course before the Export to MyBlugold CampS button will appear
- Final grades must use a valid letter grading scheme:
- Grades must be in letter format (e.g., A, A-, B+, B, etc.)
- Grades such as XF, IN, and AU must be entered manually in MyBlugold CampS; final grades should be left blank in D2L for students receiving these types of grades
- Grade rosters that permit only S/U grades cannot be exported from D2L; S/U grades must be entered manually in MyBlugold CampS.
- Either the Final Calculated Grade or Adjusted Final Grade can be exported. The same type must be set for final grade release in D2L. To set the final grade release, from the Grades Area click Grades Settings » Calculation Options » Under Final
Grade Released make your selection and Save.
- For D2L courses with multiple sections, exporting your final grades from the D2L course will send the final grades for all the students in that combined course to MyBlugold CampS. Each class section in MyBlugold CampS will pick up the appropriate students and associated final grades when you perform the grade import for each section.
- Student Is Not In The SIS Grade Roster
For a student who was manually enrolled in a D2L course and not officially registered for the course, leave the final grade blank in D2L to avoid errors on import into CampS.
- Student Did Not Come Through From D2L
If a student drops the course after the grade roster is created in CampS, an error message may result since no final grade will be imported from D2L for that student. Contact the Registrar's Office at 715-836-4524 to request a new roster for that course. You will not be able to approve your CampS grade roster unless every listed student is awarded a final grade.
- Your grading scheme contains punctuation, spaces, or invalid letters
Spaces or invalid characters in your final grades will result in errors when you try to save final grades in CampS.
- Confirmation email received but no grades appear in the roster after import into CampS Be sure the final grades exported from D2L are in letter format; final grades exported as percentages from D2L will not appear in the grade roster.
- Confirmation email never appears in your IN box
This error normally results from calculating and exporting from D2L the final grade type NOT set for release. Return to your D2L course and either calculate the version of the the final grade set for release or change your gradebook settings (Grade Settings » Calculation Options » Final Grade Released) to release the version already calculated; then repeat the export from D2L.
- Once final grades are approved in CampS for a course, final grades for that course can no longer be imported from D2L.
- Midterm grades cannot be exported from D2L to MyBlugold CampS.
- D2L maintenance occurs every Thursday morning from 5:00-7:00 a.m. and every Saturday morning from 2:00-5:00 a.m.; avoid the export process during these maintenance periods.
