      STEP 1: Create the Assignment

      1. In a site with a couple of students and a Gradebook, create an assignment. 
        1. Give it name, instructions. 
        2. Click Grade this assignment, make it worth 10 points. Select Send Grades to Gradebook.
        3. Click Post

      STEP 2: Grade a couple of students. 

      It's okay if they haven't actually submitted anything.

      1. Click on Grade link in assignment.
      2. Click on the first student name in the list. 
      3. Give student a grade. Click Save and Release.
      4. Click Back to User List to return to the submissions screen.
      5. Note that Status is Graded, grade appears in Grade column, and there's a checkmark in the Released column.
      6. Check Gradebook. Grade does not appear there.

      STEP 3: Confirm what student sees.

      1. Log out as instructor and log in as that student. 
      2. Click into the site, into the assignment.
      3. Student status will say Not Started (we didn't require the student to submit before we graded), or it will say Submitted if they did. It will not say Returned, as it would if the grade had actually been released.
      4. Check Gradebook. Grade does not appear there.

      STEP 4: Take additional step to release grade to student.

      1. Log out as student, back in as instructor.
      2. Click into Grade screen of assignment.
      3. In submissions screen, click Release Grades.
      4. Check Gradebook. Grade appears there now. 

      STEP 5: Confirm that student can now see the grade.

      1. Log back in as student. 
      2. Click into Assignments.
      3. Assignment status is now Returned. Grade is displayed, along with any feedback.
      4. Check Gradebook. Grade appears there as expected.

      Description

      When grading through Assignment's native grading screen, clicking Save and Release to Student does the following:

      • saves the comments and grade in assignment grading screen
      • presents the "Comments and/or grade have been saved" message at top of submission grading screen
      • changes status to Returned in submissions list
      • adds a checkmark in the Released column of the submissions list
      • makes the comments and grade visible to student
      • sends the grade to the Gradebook, if that setting has been chosen

      However, the behavior of the new Sakai Grader's Save and Release button is different. Clicking that button does the following:

      • saves the comments and grade in Grader pane
      • presents a green checkmark next to the grade as a confirmation that it was saved
      • changes status to Graded in submissions list
      • adds a (bogus) checkmark in the Released column of the submissions list
      • DOES NOT make comments and grade visible to the student
      • DOES NOT send the grade to the gradebook. 

      In order to complete the last two steps, the instructor must additionally click Release Grades link at top of the submissions page, which seems redundant since the Released column has the checkmark that otherwise indicates that step has been accomplished.
