Currently, the Messages Students Who percentage range only allows between 0% and 100%. Some faculty award extra credit and would have students with scores greater than 100%. The instructor is not able to message these students currently.
Hi Tasha Biesinger,
You should be able to message those students with above 100%. Just adjust the upper bounds in the score range to whatever would cover all the students. We default to 0% & 100%, but you can set bounds below or above.
We'll take a look at the UI and see if there is something we can do help.
This is definitely needed functionality for instructors who use extra credit.
When we use the 'message students who' for the course average (the envelope to the right of the area to add a section, student, assignment) and enter a value higher than 100% into the upper range entry field, the value reverts back to 100% when the focus moves away from the upper range entry field. This is preventing us from capturing students with more than 100%.
Interestingly, it works fine if we use the same feature on a specific assignment.
Hi Kevin, I want to bump this once more. While your answer works for messaging students who from an individual assignment box, it is not correct when you are messaging students who from the overall course average box. It would be super fabulous if the course average 'message students who' were updated to function the same as the feature on a specific assignment!
Hi Tasha Biesinger ,
We are unable to reproduce this. See attached screenshot. We are using the Chrome browser.
Can you try again? If it's still not working for you, please send me a note with the following and we'll dig deeper:* browser

Thanks for reaching out again, Kevin. I just tested it again, and it is working! Thanks for whatever changed between then and now!
