How to import results in Osiris with a grade input file?

In Osiris Basis, one may enter grades for groups of students in batch. The easiest and most safe way to do this is using a grade input file generated by Osiris. For more information, please read the manuals  What is a grade input file and how to I use it? and How to make a grade input file and How to use result grade codes?

The present manual assumes that a grade input file containing results is already available.

This manual describes how to enter grades that are in a grade input file already.

The pop-up window disappears.
