'Treat ungraded as 0' and the New Gradebook

Discussion created by Jeremy Stevens on May 30, 2019

Hi all,


In January 2020, the New Gradebook will just become the Gradebook, and the 'current' Gradebook will no longer be available. The New Gradebook has no 'Treat ungraded as 0' option.


I'm wondering if any other APAC institutions have this on their radar at the moment – and whether it will pose an issue for you in 2020? 


At the University of Canberra, this is shaping up to be an issue for us. Not having an option to 'Treat ungraded as 0' in the New Gradebook will result in a poor user experience for our academic staff. We've registered a feature idea here explaining the potential flow-on effects and why this experience will be poor.


Allow 'Treat ungraded as 0' in New Gradebook


Would love to hear your thoughts, the different ways your teachers use the Gradebook, and whether you see this as causing any problems for you. I hope this is the right place to ask.
