Show percentages in gradebook with % symbol

Show percentages in gradebook with % symbol

  This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas

 

  Idea will be open for vote Wed. August 5, 2015 - Wed. November 4, 2015  Learn more about voting...

At present, when an assignment receives a percentage grade, it is displayed in the gradebook without the percent sign. As below:

Clearly, this makes no sense and a percent sign should be used in this case! (Points to those of you who have a hard time looking that column in the face with a calm stomach.)

Deactivated user​, I'm sure this is the kind of thing that is parceled up in all of your current gradebook work, right?

This should be addressed as a bug, not a feature we have to vote on. From the screen shot in the request above, the test is out of 46 points, a "92" would actually 200%. That little % sign is pretty important in conveying that the actual score is 92%, not 92 points out of 46 possible.

Thank You for taking the time and energy to submit and discuss your idea. Your feedback helps our product teams prioritize feature development so we can build a product you will love. Unfortunately, this idea has been archived because it did not meet the 100-vote threshold within the 3-month voting period. Learn more at: How does the voting process work for feature ideas?

Can archived ideas still become a feature?  Potentially. Archived ideas can be resubmitted by Community members. As people’s needs change, previously submitted ideas may gain additional traction. All feature ideas are evaluated as a whole and may influence product direction.

I so very agree. Re-converting this into a ticket on my end, because of that bogosity level.
