Codes to add:

Code to create TABS Environment Variable: Home=Course,Calendar=Calendar,Content=Lessons,Resources=Resources,InTouch=Communicate,Grades=Grades,Reports=Report,Agents=Automate,Tools=Manage

Code to put in the URL field next to new Gradebook Tab in Tab Settings: /section/gradebook/student/default.aspx

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Go to the Manage tab in your course.
  2. In the Course Settings nugget, click on Environment Variables.
  3. Click Add a variable.
    • In the Variable Name field, enter TABS.
    • In the Variable Value field, enter the code to create the TABS environment variable (above).
  4. Click Save.
  5. Click Exit Course Variables.
  6. In the Course Settings nugget, click Tab Settings.
    • Note that the Grades tab has been added to the list.
  7. In the Label column, change the name to "Gradebook".
  8. In the URL field, add the code to put in the URL field (above).
  9. Click Save.

Bonus Feature:

The main reason the "Reports" tab is available for students is so that they can access their grades. If you have a Gradebook tab, there is little reason to keep the Reports tab.

Clean up the course by turning off that tab:

  1. In the Manage tab, select Tab Settings (from the Course Settings nugget).
  2. Next to the Reports tab in the list is a setting for "Viewable By." Set that to Course Editors.
  3. Click Save.
