Icons in Gradebook all of a sudden

We have teachers that are all of a sudden getting icons in Gradebook instead of numerical values. Even though the assignments have been created the same way all year long, and they have been graded....now the icons are showing up?

@johnhainley Can you please attach a screenshot of the icons you mean?  If students resubmit something, you will get the little sheet of paper icon even though it may have been something that is already graded.  You will also see this on quizzes that have something that needs to be manually graded.

@johnhainley It is a little hard to tell but that does look like the icon for something that needs grading.

If you open that assignment in SpeedGrader, does it give any indication that something is not graded?

Also, can you edit your last post to have a screenshot that does not include student names? We can't share that info in this community.  It is a little blurry so hard to really tell what they say but better safe than sorry.

Here is some more data from the teacher I am working with.

@johnhainley That is a good one, I would actually expect it to have the icon every time but maybe it being worth zero point somehow circumvents the need for it to be manually graded.

I just setup a quiz with questions and a file upload and I got the icon like I would expect.

@johnhainley -

What type of question is question 6 (I think that is the number showing in the pictures) that needs attention?

is it the same type for both quizzes?  I am assuming quizzes based on the needing grading part.  However, you mention assignment, so is it an assignment asssignment? or is it a quiz assignment?

I think @nwilson7 is correct that it has to do with an ungraded question on the quiz.  That icon indicates a file upload, and that something needs grading on that quiz.

Looking at the second screenshot, speed grader is showing 24/25 graded or maybe 34/35 graded.  So the one student showing the submission icon has not been graded.  So that would indicate that even though the file upload question is worth 0 points, it still needs 0 points assigned to it for grading purposes (or to be counted as graded).  The teacher can find those students needing grading by looking at the student list in the upper right hand corner and finding those students that have a yellow/orange dot next to their name instead of a check mark.

Without knowing what the teacher is doing exactly it is hard to say why some quizzes are "graded" without doing anything with the file upload and others are not graded.  It may have to do with whether or not that particular quiz was viewed in speed grader or not.

lastly, and this is a long shot.  I do not know if this is new quizzes or classic quizzes.  But if it is classic quizzes, ask the instructor if they are using the quizwiz canvancement by James.  If they are then that is a possible path to solving the mystery as well.
