How to send a message to students directly from the gradebook.

Did you know you can quickly send a message to students directly from the gradebook?

This is an easy way for instructors to message to the students

  • who haven't submitted an assignment, discussion or exam yet
  • haven't been graded yet
  • scored less than or more than on an assignment, discussion, or exam

For example, you may send a message students who have not participated on the first discussion board yet in Week 1 as a quick reminder that the course has started and items are due. Or you may use this tool to message students who have not submitted an assignment yet and it's past due.
