  • Manual For Students
  • Students in the Waitlisted Student role have the same default permissions as students in the Student role, meaning that they can complete the same tasks, and be evaluated in the same ways, as fully enrolled students. For example, waitlisted students can:

    • Access text content (e.g., readings in the Resources folder; topics and posts in the Forums tool; etc.)
    • Access multimedia content (e.g., video or audio files in the Kaltura Media Gallery tool)
    • Access, complete, and submit assignments and assessments in the Assignments and Tests & Quizzes tools
    • Participate in discussions in the Forums and Discussion and Private Messages tools
    • Edit collaborative documents in the Wiki, Wiki (Confluence), and NowComment tools
    • Receive grades
    • Receive messages sent to the site email address

    See the Waitlisted Student role overview for more information.

    How does extra credit work?

    The extra credit (EC) feature in Gradebook can be enabled (1) at the item level or (2) at the category level. For more information on adding items/categories to the Gradebook see How do I set up my Gradebook? or How do I add items to the Gradebook?

    When you designate an item or a category as Extra Credit, those items are not added to the total "out of" value for points possible in the Gradebook. If students earn points for extra credit items, those points are added on top of the total grade. However, no points will be deducted for students who do not receive a score for extra credit. Extra Credit indicates "bonus" items, or optional credit.

    Note: It is important that you DO NOT make individual items extra credit within an Extra Credit category. Those items will be considered optional within the category and therefore would have no effect on the overall grade outside of the category.

  • The UVaCollab Gradebook is integrated with the iRubric tool.  Using iRubric, you can attach a rubric to your assignment or gradebook item.  For instructions on getting started with iRubric, see the following webpage: iRubric at UVa.
