About Grades, Checklist, Classlist

Grades - Use the Grades tool to check your grades on assignments and tests. You can see your individual grades and comments, as well as class averages and feedback. You can also view your final grade and the grade formula used to evaluate you if your grades are released.

Checklist - A Checklist is a way to highlight important or required assignments, readings, or other items to complete. A checklist may list all the items you need to complete at once or may have items appear as you complete other items.

Classlist - You can use the Classlist to see who’s enrolled in your course, check who’s online, and to send emails and pages.
