A recent update has caused the Grades tab to show ALL assignments (even those without a due date) making it VERY cumbersome and confusing to find only the assignments and quizzes that are solely for that quarter and that have a due date.
My colleagues and I make approximately 6-8 assignments per course we teach EACH DAY so the grades tab is now overwhelmed with all of these assignments. A large majority of these are ungraded practice exercises that I do not want to contain a due date as that then causes the students' list of assignments to be overwhelming rather than be an easy way for them to see what graded / high priority assignments they have to complete or have missed.
The fact that this update was made after we have been using Canvas since September and not putting due dates and therefore not seeing all these assignments in Grades makes it all the more frustrating. I have MANY assignments from Sept and on that are showing up in my grades tab for 4th quarter.
Clearly, as I have described the high volume of assignments without due dates, it is not practical for us to go in and add due dates to the assignments now.
PLEASE, PLEASE, change the Grades set up so that it does NOT include assignments without due dates. Or allow for a 'hide assignments without due date' option.
