# Copy and Paste Assignment Scores to GradeBook

You can copy and paste scores to your GradeBook for assignments your students completed outside of WebAssign.

2. Select I want to upload a set of assignments from a file.
3. Click Next.

Note: If you skip this step, you will need to create the file and add your students' information manually.

1. Select fullname or student number if you want to include this information.

The file is downloaded as a tab-separated text file with the filename extension you selected.

For example:
