I want to see the grade behind the "note" icon. How do I do that?
That icon means that there is a submission that needs to be graded. If you open the assignment in the Speed Grader, you should be able to see the submission.
How do I use the icons and colors in the New Gradebook?
How do I get to SpeedGrader from an assignment, quiz, or graded discussion?
