    You will want to check for your grades throughout the semester.  Grades can be found under “My Grades” in the Tools button of the left hand course menu. 

    If you access “My Grades” inside a course, you see your grades for that course only.  If you access “My Grades” from the My Institution tab near the top center of the screen, you see grades for all your current courses.
