How do I change the Grade Centre view?

The Grade Centre has a facility to freeze columns. The first two columns containing students’ first and last names are frozen by default and always remain in position on the left side of the Grade Centre while the rest of the columns can be scrolled through. This makes it easier to match individual students with their data across the Grade Centre if it contains a large number of columns.

Follow the links below for instructions concerning freezing other columns in place on the left hand side:

How do I use Smart Views?

The Grade Centre allows you to customise views to show only the information you need. For example you can create a view that shows only the students in your tutor group, or a view that shows only the assignments you have set in a course.

Follow the links below for instructions on creating different kinds of Smart Views:
