There are multiple ways to enter grades on this page; you can:
- Select an activity column header to open the Activity Grader, which allows you to enter scores and feedback for every student assigned that activity.
- Select an activity cell for a specific student and enter that student’s score and feedback for that activity.
- Select Enable Quick Edit to make the entire table editable, and enter scores directly into the cells; if you choose this approach, use one of the other methods to provide feedback.
By providing multiple ways to enter grades, Pearson Connexus accommodates different circumstances and grade-keeping styles all in one place.

There are three inline help items that appear on this screen and are not currently supported by screen readers. See below:
- Below the grading fields in the Grade Editor for Multi-Outcome Scoring courses: You can selectively excuse a student from any Scoring Objective by entering "X" instead of a number in the score box and then selecting Submit Score. To excuse a student from the entire activity, select Excuse.
- Next to pending grades in the Gradebook: Pending scores represent activities that have been graded, but the score has not been returned to the student. Pending scores include:
- Scores that have been saved and not submitted.
- Scores that have been submitted, but the activity’s specified release date for the score has not passed.
- Next to the version number (Version: [#]) in the Submit Answers window used to submit student answers from a printed assessment:The printed assessment has already been submitted if its version is not [#].
The Quick edit tool allows you to update activity Scores for a student.
Follow the steps below:
- Select the Enable quick-edit grading button in the toolbar (it is highlighted when enabled as in the screenshot).
- Select a student's score for an activity to activate the editable field and update the Score column.
- Selecting a new cell saves the updated Score.
- Pressing Enter while in a cell saves the Score and navigates to the next editable Score cell for that activity.
When you're done using Quick edit, you can select the tool in the toolbar to disable it.
If you leave it enabled, it remains enabled when you navigate away from the screen, so you can return and continue editing scores. Enabling Quick edit also enables it in the Student Grades screen, so you can navigate between screens to update scores.
- You can also grade submissions by selecting them as they appear in the To-do List on the Home page.
- Use the Final Grades feature to review and submit grades.
- Use the Mastery screen to check student mastery of course objectives.
