Apply Status [missing, late, excused] while in Speedgrader


With the new Gradebook, you can apply one of these status items to an assignment:



Our professors would like the ability to toggle different status markers while they are in Speedgrader.


As stated by many above; It is very time consuming to go back to the grade page and mark missing. I would like to be able to do this on SPEED GRADER with a simple letter or code.

Also, after a student turns in a missing assignment it would be nice if it removes the missing comment. It sometimes takes me a week to get to items turned in late and students start emailing about the lingering message and 0.

Honestly, I am surprised this still hasn't been resolved since people have been commenting on it for a long period of time. 



Normally I mark missing work with a zero and the "missing" label in PowerSchool. It helps my parents have a better grasp of why their child has the grade that is posted. Without that "missing" label, they assume I messed up or that their child missed every single question which they assume means I didn't teach it. Either way, the parents blame me unless I include the "missing" label.

While I love the ability to sync to PowerSchool, I have not been able to make this "missing" label work for me. It is so cumbersome to grade in speedgrader, and then flip to the gradebook to click on each 0 and then click the arrow to pop out the side bar to then click on missing. It is just too many steps. If I am grading in speedgrader, then I should be able to do everything grading entails, which includes making notes about missing, being late, or being excused.


This would be really great!  I frequently have students turn in work late because they just added near the beginning of the semester and it would be nice not to have to grade their work in speed grader, then go into grades and remove the late penalty.


This is definitely needed!  I would LOVE to be able to change the status in the Speedgrader.  It does not make sense to have to go back to the grade book all the time to adjust the setting.  It is very helpful for tracking students but takes too many steps.  


I'd like the ability to change status markers in SpeedGrader. I would also like to be able to change the points deducted for individual students.  The student might be late but have an excuse for some of that lateness.  So, rather than an all-or-nothing approach, I would like to modify the point deductions. 


I've been wanting this as well!  It would save so much time not to have to go back to the gradebook to manually update statuses.  In ADDITION, I would love to see ALL status options included (specifically the green resubmit option since our students are allowed to redo their work for a better score.)
