I am experimenting with some gamification ideas using customized grading schemes. I am using text based descriptors for attaining different levels as students accumulate points for completing various activities. My schemes seem to be working pretty well but as an instructor looking at the gradebook, they don't fit in the total column next to the total points. I can resize the other columns in the gradebook using FF and Chrome but when I try and resize the total column it doesn't work. If I have moved the total column to the front of the gradebook it resizes the secondary ID column and if it is at the end of the gradebook it resizes the last two assignment group columns.
Is this a bug that makes it so the total column won't resize or is it a design feature? I really would love to be able to resize the total column. By the way, the long names in a grade scheme show up just fine on the student's grade page :-)
