Monitor learner data

In edX, click on the assignment for which you want to view data and click  Monitor. Learn more about the data analytics and how to score student responses here.

Export grades into edX gradebook

If your bulb only includes auto-graded questions (multiple choice, check-all-that-apply, fill-in-the-blank), then grades will be automatically exported into the edX gradebook. 

If you have graded free response questions or edited grades for auto-graded questions, you will need to sync changes with the edX Grade Center. To do this:

  1. Navigate to the Monitor page
  2. Click Export Grades 
  3. Click Report to check the status of the student grade export. Note: It may take a few minutes to push all updated scores into the gradebook
