Gradebook Smart View by Group

This idea has been developed and deployed to Canvas
Description:  In the Gradebook instructors need the ability to view students by Group.  It could be as easy as adding a filter by group at the top of the page.

 

The Need for this feature:  Currently we must use “manual” sections to facilitate this which is added maintenance for the course set-up.

This feature could be especially valuable in classes with large numbers of students, with several TA's to help grading.

It would be extremely helpful for large classes with multiple TAs handling different groups of students. Smart views by Groups will let each TA see only their groups of students in Grades. Currently we have a lot of workarounds in place to make this possible. That is time consuming, requires hours of manual work and cause user errors occasionally.

Because I teach one section of a class with multiple sections, I am not able to create multiple sections within my class. So, I can't use the workaround mentioned above. In my class, I let students choose between different project tracks, and being able to filter by groups in the grade book would make it much easier to keep track of the different assignments for different groups of students. It would also be nice to assign assignments by group (and not just section) for the same reason.
