Moodle 3.2: Category View Options in the Standard Gradebook

Applies to: Moodle 3.2

When using categories to organize the gradebook, the Standard Gradebook offers three viewing options of the data: Full, Aggregates, and Grades Only. Each view reveals more or less information and can be helpful when there are many items in the gradebook. The Gradebook will retain the last view you use.

Note: Categories must be set up in the gradebook for the following steps to apply.
