Submit grades for an individual external activity
If you don't want or need to bulk import external grades and activities using an external grade file (Example — .csv or .tsv file), you can manually enter grades for a single external activity into Möbius, and then submit them to the Gradebook.
External activity — An activity that was completed outside of the Möbius platform (Example — a quiz completed on paper, an oral presentation, etc.).
To submit external grades into Möbius without using an external grade file, you have to create a new external activity in Möbius.
TIP: An external grade file is ideal if you are continually adding external grades and activities to your Gradebook, or you have many external grades and activities to upload at once. Check out Bulk import of external grades.
