How to make a grade input file?

BrightSpace included an option to export the final grade for all students in a format that allows direct upload into Osiris. This is available in Brightspace under Grades -> Export for Osiris. If you use the Brightspace gradebook, see Grades | How to export grades from Brightspace into Osiris

In Osiris, final grades of all students of a course can be registered at once by using a grade input file. This is an Excel file that Osiris can create for you. This can be done in Osiris Secretarial Office as well as in Osiris Lecturer. For details see the manuals What is a grade input file and how to use it? and How to enter results with a grade input file.
