In the new gradebook, if you have a large course (in the example I'm looking at, 800 students and 30 grade items), it can take 20-25 seconds for the gradebook to fully load. This is fine, but the Search box is grayed out until all the grades are loaded. Other options and buttons become available in the first five seconds, but not the search box. It would be a big help for instructors in these kinds of courses if they could start searching for a particular student right away without waiting for the whole page to load.
