How do I attach a grading scale to my courses?

Once your grading scales are set up, they need to be assigned to courses so that instructors can enter grades accordingly. An admin can assign grading scales to a single course or to multiple courses at once. However, in order to assign a grading scale to a course, the grading scale must first be made available to all schools at which the course is available.
