A new gradebook is now available for Schoology Instructors.
In addition to a significant update to the user interface, instructors have access to several new features:
- New grade sorting option: In addition to sorting by due date in ascending order, instructors can now sort in descending order, with the most recent due dates at the beginning of the gradebook.
- View menu: Use the options in the new View menu to highlight cells in the gradebook that hit the criteria you selected. For example, select Needs Grading to highlight all past-due items that require a grade.
- Shortcuts to view submissions: Click the icons that display in graded items to open submissions directly from the gradebook.
- Marking exceptions: The ability to mark an assignment Excused or Incomplete is now available directly from the item's gradebook cell. Hover to display the exception flag, then click and choose the exception:
