31 Allowing Grade Reporting for Individual Books

The grade reporting feature in our Pressbooks LTI 1.3 plugin can be either be enabled globally for all books on your network, or activated on a per book basis, depending on which level of the add-on you have purchased.

For networks where grade reporting should be available to all students, Pressbooks staff will activate the plugin globally across the entire network.

In cases where you have purchased a fixed number of student connections, the grade reporting functionality can be activated by network managers on a book-by-book basis using the following approaches:

From the Book List

If the LTI 1.3 plugin is activated, network managers can toggle whether a book can be configured to send grade information to an LMS from within the Book List module (Network Admin > Books > Book List).

This can be done on a book-by-book basis by clicking the red X/green checkmark in the Allows grading column. When clicked, the value should change. A red X means that book admins will not see the grade configuration options within their book. A green checkmark means that book admins will be able to configure components of that book to be graded when brought into the LMS via a working LTI 1.3 connection.

In addition, network managers can toggle the setting for many books at once by clicking the check box to the left of a book’s cover for any desired books, then choosing the Allow grading or Disallow grading option from Bulk Actions menu at the bottom of the page, and pressing Apply.

From the Book Dashboard

Network managers can also allow/disallow grading from within an individual book’s dashboard. To do so, open a book’s dashboard and click Integrations, then LTI Settings. From this page, you can toggle the Show LMS Grade Reporting configuration option at the top of the page as desired. Press Save Changes to save any changes. This particular setting will only be visible to network managers.
