As Gerd said, you will probably have to have uploaded the test scores using
Score Upload Form. But before I try to answer this one, I'll suggest you
read the spreadsheet section of the course coordinator manual. The reason I
can't answer it right now is because there are three levels of spreadsheet:
The resource spreadsheet, which feeds into the student spreadsheet, which
feeds into the course spreadsheet, and until you read up and can clarify,
there are lots of different, possible answers.

I think you'll have to add up the scores from the individual homeworks.

Yes, the Course Coordinator manual has a complete section on the spreadsheet.
Speaking from experience, spreadsheets can be a bit "interesting" getting
started, and making your way through the three separate levels of
spreadsheets. However, to me it has turned out to be very much worth it, as
now my students always have instant access to my gradebook.
