My suggestion for the View Ungraded as Zero is for it to be persistence-limited. As described by the content information, the tool provides "instructors with a visual change in identifying grading calculations for ungraded assignments". A process flow for a persistence-limited option would be:
Faculty seeks to view their students grades for assignments not yet graded
Sub-totals and total grades are noted with the "View ungraded as zero" showing the change in grades for the students when this option is checked
After viewing the changes in the gradebook, the faculty either unchecks the option or clicks away from the gradebook
If the faculty unchecks the option, then all is good
If the faculty clicks away from the gradebook without unchecking the option, have the persistence state change the "View ungraded as zero" to off
This returns the view for the faculty showing no grades for the ungraded assignments
My basis for this suggestion is that the faculty having seen the changes in the grade, there is no reason for the View ungraded as Zero to persist/remain on since the "grade message" has been delivered. If the faculty wants to review this option, then they go through the process again. This suggested solution will alleviate the above concerns.
Is this possible?
