Updated Features for Instructors

Assignments - Moderated Grading Assignment Editing

  • The Teacher, TA and Non-editing Instructor roles can now edit a moderated assignment. Previously, only the user that was selected as the final grader was able to edit this assignment type.

SpeedGrader - Rubric Additional Comments Text Field

  • When an instructor creates a rubric for an assignment and views the rubric in SpeedGrader, clicking the comment icon displays a text box directly below the selected criterion.

Updated Features for Students

Outcomes - Student Learning Mastery Total Score Display

  • The Student Learning Mastery Gradebook displays the total score for an outcome if at least one alignment does not include hidden point values. For multiple alignments in an outcome, if at least one alignment displays a point value, the overall outcome displays the outcome’s total score. The total score is calculated using the mastery value within each outcome, and all hidden point values are still included in the total score.
