Canvas: Gradebook History, Groups, Grade Detail Tray

Canvas by Instructure orange circular logo with Canvas by Instructure written in warm gray font

Implementation Date: October 7, 2020

In this Canvas Deploy, the updates below became part of the main Canvas environment.

  • Gradebook History: In the Gradebook history, mentions of Assignment have been replaced with Artifact. This change clarifies terminology in that items in a course associated with the Gradebook are not always assignments.
  • Groups: The design of the Add Group window for instructors has been updated. No functionality has been affected.
  • Gradebook – Grade Detail Tray: The Grade Details Tray will no longer include labels for assignments that have enabled Anonymous Grading. Previously, when Anonymous Grading was enabled for an assignment, the Hidden label was included in the Grade Detail Tray for students that had been graded. Additionally, the Excused label was included if the student had been excused. However, no labels were displayed for students who had not been graded, which could break anonymity.
