Within the Gradebook tool is the Grades tab, which features icons and colored fonts to provide visual indicators to identify grades or interactions between student and teachers.
Standard Icons in the Gradebook
|Excused||Skipped items that will not count as part of the final grade. In Prescriptive courses, the formative Pretest assessment will auto-excuse any objective-level content when students demonstrate mastery. Teachers can also manually excuse any content.|
|Allow Retry||Indicates items have been reassigned by an instructor.|
|Needs Grading||If the activity is set to manual grading, this icon appears after the activity is submitted. If the activity has a SCORM score model, this may appear when content is saved but not finished.|
|Score Not Submitted||The teacher has entered a score and selected Save Draft. The teacher must select Submit Score to complete the item and remove this icon.|
|Feedback||Displays when a teacher has provided feedback for a submitted activity. Teachers and students can see the icon anywhere scores are displayed. Wherever students and teachers see the feedback indicator, they are also provided access to the feedback. In some places they can select the icon, and in others they can select an accompanying link.|
|Completed||Indicating the item has been completed.|
Colored Fonts within the Gradebook
|Red||Scores below mastery threshold or past due submissions|
|Green||Scores at or above mastery threshold|
|Black||Formative assessment score|
Add additional visual indicators in student profiles to help bring focus to items below passing score or past due.
