Akindi - Export grades to D2L

This document will give instructions about how to move grades from Akindi to D2L.

Export grades to D2L

  1. Complete the Akindi steps as a Canvas user would except do not hit the 'Send Grades to Canvas' button in Akindi.
    1. Navigate to the Results page of an assessment.
    2. Click Actions>Download CSV and click Download (instead of clicking 'Send Grades to Canvas'). Download.
    3. In D2L, go to Grades > Export.
    4. Select Org Defined ID.
    5. Select Points Grade.
    6. Select Last Name and First Name.
    7. Select the Grade Item for the quiz/exam.
    8. Click Export to CSV.
    9. Download the file from the popup window that D2L generates. 
    10. Copy the “Mark (out of X)” column from the Akindi CSV file starting with the first student’s grade.
      • This column represents the final point value grade for each student on this assignment. The rest of the information in the file can be disregarded for this process.
    11. Paste this information into the corresponding blanks in the “------- Points Grade” column in the D2L CSV file.
      • Best practice is to compare student names from the Akindi file with the D2L file to ensure that the right grades are getting to the right students.
