Improve Gradebook settings options

Theme Overview

Instructors want more options in Gradebook settings to grade more efficiently and optimize their workflows.

What value could this provide to users?

  • Instructors can remove assignments that don't count toward final grades from the Gradebook and student grade page
  • Instructors can set a "grade release date" and other grade policies at the assignment level
  • Instructors can customize Gradebook Status (Missing, Late, Excused, etc.)
  • Allow option to have the "missing" label only apply to required assignments
  • Instructors can cap grades on additional assignment attempts
  • Save instructors additional time by scaling scores automatically and calculating a class average
  • The "hide grades" functionality is improved so it's clearer when grades are hidden
