[Grades] Box plot for grade distribution

[Grades] Box plot for grade distribution

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

 

As a student, it would be helpful to have a box and whisker plot when showing grade distributions, instead of the current min/mean/max. The median value and quartiles would make it easier to see where I fall among my peers, rather than just an average.

Hi, @RGoldman1! Just wanted to send a quick note to let you know that this has been updated. Your request was very timely as the team was already working on this project! Love when the stars align on timing! 🙂

The change to show median and quartiles will go live with our deploy on 8/3. You can read more about the change and what you should expect to see in the deploy notes here.

After viewing the changes that were implemented on August 3rd, I noticed that the box and whisker plot seemed to become smaller or more bunched together despite the fact that it seems to have a large length of space allocated for it. As a result of the new change adding in the quartiles, is there any way to stretch out the box and whisker plot?

 

Thank you
