There is no event quite as frustrating as accidentally deleting a grade or grade column from the Scholar Grade Center.  While Scholar records each change that you make to the Grade Center, you may find it easier to restore from a backup.  This article describes how to back up your Grade Center.


The Grade Center has a feature that allows you to save a copy on your own computer. You may want to save a copy before and after you make major changes to your Grade Center layout or grade a large number of papers.


In the course, use the control panel to access the Full Grade Center.

In the next section, select Comma Delimited for the file type, as there are problems importing the tab delimited format into newer versions of Excel.  Then choose if you want to include hidden columns and/or users.
