For all course sites created after July 8th, 2014, the Grade Center tool will have several new default settings. These changes were made to improve usability of the Grade Center, and are based on faculty and student feedback we have received.
  • The "Weighted Total" column will no longer be automatically generated.
  • The "Total" column will automatically be hidden from students and instructors view.
  • Submissions that need grading will now be highlighted Yellow in the Full Grade Center.
  • Submissions that are In Progress will be highlighted Blue in the Full Grade Center.
  • A new "Discussion Board" smart view column filter has been added under the "Full Grade Center" link on the course menu.
  • The default "Letter" Grading Schema now reflects the official UMass Dartmouth letter grading scale.
  • The "Student ID" and "Availability" columns are hidden from instructor view by default.
