Read Only Columns in Grade Book Export CSV

Following the guide for exporting grades (How do I export grades from the Gradebook? )


The exported CSV file (as of the last release 4/26) has a lot of read-only columns, and it seems like more are generated than necessary for the assignment group(s). If you have one assignment group such as the default group named 'Assignments', there are a total of 6 additional columns in the exported CSV that show up:


  • Assignments Current Points
  • Assignments Final Points
  • Assignments Current Score
  • Assignments Unposted Current Score
  • Assignments Final Score
  • Assignments Unposted Final Score


What meaning or use do these columns have? What's worse is that if you have many assignment groups, it's 6 columns per group making the whole CSV file a bit more unwieldy. 


Is there a document/guide that explains this? I also posted this as a comment to the aforementioned guide page.
