How do I filter columns and rows in the Gradebook?

The Filter menu allows the Gradebook to be filtered by assignment group, section, modules, and grading period (if applicable).

When a filter option is selected, the filter menu displays at the top of the Gradebook. Multiple filters can be used at the same time.

Filter options will apply to either Gradebook rows or columns. The option to filter columns affects all assignments within the filter. The options to filter rows affects all students within the filter. You can also arrange columns within filter results.

Comments

Filters in the gradebook are awesome! However, there is one confusing setting for Grading Period filters. The default (if there is no Grading Period filter selected) is for the gradebook to show grades for the current grading period (I think), which can sometimes be confusing to instructors. I would prefer that by default, if there is NO Grading Period filter selected, that it shows All Grading Periods, and then if someone goes out of their way to select the filter, THEN you can choose to see grades by the different grading periods of the term. 

@epulham that is an interesting idea and some great feedback. If you'd like, you're welcome to share this in the Feature Conversations space as a feature idea. That's the best place to share feedback like this. Let us know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,
