How do I Import grades from an Excel (.csv) file into the Gradebook2?

Instructors can import grades into the Gradebook2 tool using a formatted .csv file. A properly formatted .csv file containing all of the student information can be downloaded first from the Gradebook2 tool under Tools / Download New item Template (See: How do I download a Gradebook2 Template?).

Use this template to add/calculate your grades in Excel (or some other spreadsheet application) then import the file back into the Gradebook2.
