Configure grading for my course as a student

If you are a student and see the message "Grading not configured", it means that grading for your Board is enabled, but not configured for your account. However, configuring your account for grading is quite simple.

In your Learning Management System (LMS) such as Canvas or Blackboard, find the assignment that corresponds to Yellowdig for your course. If you're unsure what the assignment is called, ask your instructor.

Keep in mind that each LMS - and course structure therein - will vary but, in the end, you'll still be navigating and clicking on what is essentially the same link/button. The following screenshots are an example of a Canvas Yellowdig assignment.



  • After finding the assignment, simply click on it. You'll be taken to the Yellowdig Board for the course (just as before), but grading will now be configured for you automatically.

note: If you're enrolled into a Blackboard course, do not click on the button labeled "launch" that appears upon clicking your Yellowdig assignment. Instead, let the page continue to load.


If you still see the grading is not configured message, please contact us at and we'll be happy to resolve the issue for you.
