Brightspace: Grades


View the grades on assignments and tests using the Grades page. You can see your individual grades as well as the formula used to evaluate you. Depending on how your grades are setup, you may be able to view feedback from your instructor and/or overall class performance statistics.


  1. First, select Grades from the Navbar.
  2. Now, review the Current Grade Percentage. This grade is the grade you would receive if you finished the course today. This is not the grade you have for only the assignments you have completed.
  3. Next, view the “Grade Item” column which contains the activities by unit.
    Note: Grades are not posted immediately. If you choose, you can sign up to receive immediate text or email notifications when a grade item is released or updated.
  4. Then view feedback for quizzes, assignments and/or discussions by looking in the “Comments and Assessments” column.
  5. Finally, if you choose, you can view feedback on the assessment.
    • To view the rubric used to grade your activity. Simply tap the “View Graded Rubric” link located in the “Comments and Assessments” column.
    • To view comments or feedback, tap “View Inline Feedback”.

The Grades page is shown with the sections/fields mentioned above. Graded items appear in a column below the over all scores.

Limited Course Capacity

We’re sorry to inform you that we have reached capacity for several of our Semester 1 and Trimester 1 courses. You’ll notice when attempting to enroll students in our Student Learning Portal that some courses are unavailable. While we are no longer accepting new enrollments for these courses at this time, many courses continue to remain open for enrollment.

With many students across the state 100% remote, demand for our online courses is greater than ever before. Because every course we offer is taught by a Michigan-certified teacher, this high volume of enrollments has created capacity issues for our teachers who provide each and every student with individual feedback.

While the Michigan Virtual team anticipated and planned for significant increases in student enrollments this Fall, the increased demand we’ve experienced has been unprecedented. As a result, we are taking steps to hire even more part-and full-time teachers to support larger numbers of student enrollments for Semester 2 as well as for Trimester 2 and 3. 

For schools that still need online learning options this year, please fill out the form at the bottom of our virtual pathways page to meet with someone to discuss other solutions. While some of our teacher-led courses are full, we may still have the capacity to help you in upcoming terms or can discuss timing to implement a whole-school or collaborative program in which local teachers from your school/district use our online course content to teach students. We also have free course content and resources available for you to use.

We know this is an incredibly stressful time for all, and we’re sorry if the courses you’re looking for are unavailable. We never want to turn away a student who wants to learn from us. Our top concern, however, is student success, and we have a policy to not take on additional enrollments if we cannot guarantee that all students will have a quality online learning experience. 

We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the unusually high volume of enrollments we are receiving.
