KB Gradebook

Many instructors already use WordPress to run course websites. Now they can also use WordPress to let students securely check their grades online.

If you are upgrading from a 0.1+ to a 1.+ version, don't do it until you read the important comments at the top of the plugin file!

  1. Upload kb_gradebook.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.
  3. Go to the new 'Manage => KB Gradebook' admin page. You'll find instructions for importing grades. Give it a go.
  4. Create a new page called "Grade Viewer" or something. Add [KB Gradebook] somewhere in the body. Navigate to this new page. You should see a form for checking grades.

You can test that it worked by adding yourself to your gradesheet before uploading it (as if you were a student). Then, you can punch your own email address into the grade viewing page and see what happens.

If you like, you can add the KB Gradebook widget to your sidebar at this point. It will want to know the URL of the grade viewing page, so make sure you create that first.
