  1. During Post Grades (Midterms & Finals), the Post Grades Block will display and links will appear for each section, as well as a list of degree candidates. This is the time to transfer your grades from Moodle to the Mainframe grade sheets. During periods when Post Grades is inactive, the block will only be visible when Editing is ON. The block will appear empty during this time.

  1. Click on the section link for which you want to upload grades. A preview screen will show the course total grade for each student. The default Letter Grade Scale is a 10-point scale. If you do not want to use the 10-point scale, you can create a custom scale. For directions on how to do this, see How to Create Custom Grade Scales (Letter Grade). All midterm and final grades will be entered on the plus/minus scale.
  2. Review the grades on the preview screen and make sure they show the desired grade for each student. If there are errors in the grades, click the Return to Gradebook button.
  • NOTE: You will only be able to transfer grades from Moodle once for each grade sheet, or section. If a check mark appears in the Post Grades block, grades have already been transferred for that section.
  1. Once the students' grades are correct, click the Post [Midterm Grades/ Final Grades] button. You will be redirected to the myLSU Post Grades page to Verify and Submit the students' grades.
