Gradebook offers the following options for instructors to customize how it displays for them:
Note: These display changes do not affect the student view of Gradebook. For information about the student view, see How do students view their grades in the Gradebook?
Select the Gradebook tool from the Tool Menu of your site.
The Gradebook allows you to filter the student list by section/group or by searching for all or part of a student's name.
Select the desired section or group from the drop-down menu at the top to view only that section/group.
When you scroll sideways to view additional columns on the right, the left-most columns containing student information and course grades remain frozen.
The default display for student names is Last Name First Name. However, if you prefer to view students listed as First Name Last Name, click the down arrow in the Students column and select Order By First Name.
If you would like to display course points, select the down arrow in the Course Grade column and choose Show Points.
Note: This option is not available if Categories and Weighting is selected.
Tip: If points are already displayed and you would like to hide them, select the down arrow in the Course Grade column and choose Hide Points.
If you have categories in your Gradebook, you may select/deselect the box next to Group by Category to display or hide the category groupings in your view of the Gradebook.
Note: Show/Hide Items DOES NOT control which items are or are not released to students. It only controls the columns displayed in the instructor view of the tool.
You may drag and drop to reorder columns.
Note: When viewing items grouped by category, you can only reorder columns within a category. To reorder categories, you need to go to Gradebook > Settings > Categories and Weighting.
To sort the list by grade for specific grade item, click on the title of the item. Click again on the same item title to reverse the sort order.
Note: When you are sorting by an item, a directional arrow will display. The direction of the arrow indicates if you are sorting in ascending or descending order.
