Hello Colleagues and Canvas Dev team,
Here is a little feedback about our observation and experience with the new gradebook so far. We're about to start a pilot with several teachers using the new Canvas Gradebook and will definitely add more feedback over the coming weeks.
- The Sync Grades to SIS menu item should only appear if you have enabled SIS syncing. This will be a point of confusion to teachers for those districts that are not using a sync. It should work similar to how Grading Periods does not appear in filters unless you are using a term associated with a grading period.
- Grading Periods filter should automatically be on the screen if your course / term are associated with a grading period. It is on the screen with the current gradebook and is a key piece of information for teachers.
- It would be great to see some kind of bulk change method for updating the colors or assignment status. The "set default grade" is a good feature.
