The Status option allows you to change the default colors in the Gradebook. Each color is a default associated with a Gradebook status: late (blue), missing (red), resubmitted (green), dropped (orange), or excused (yellow). Colors can be adjusted by selecting a default color or using a supported hex code.

Colors are a per-user, per-course setting, so the colors you set in your course do not apply to any other user who may view the Gradebook, and they do not apply to the New Gradebook in any other course. Additionally, status names cannot be changed.

Note: Some colors may seem darker if they display in a Gradebook row that has an alternating gray background.
