Gradebook Filters

What Are Gradebook Filters?

Filters let you choose what YOU want to see in the Gradebook.  

The typical gradebook contains dozens of students, and  many weeks of assignments.  But how often do you need to see everything in the gradebook?  Most of the time in the gradebook is spent focused on particular students, or assignments, or a period of time.

Gradebook Filters make it easier to keep track of student work and assign grades more efficiently.  View grades by assignment type, or for a specific module, or a single section in a combined course, or all of the above!  Keep an eye on student progress by sorting assignments and grades to spot trends where students might need extra help by watching for missing or late submissions.

Gradebook Filters include:

  • Sections
  • Modules
  • Assignment Groups
  • Student Groups
  • Assignment Status
  • and more
