Option Description Managing View Display Options
Displays users’ usernames in the grade book.
Org Defined ID
Displays Org Defined IDs in the grade book.
Displays users’ email addresses in the grade book. (This option can take up a lot of screen space when viewing the grade book.)
Displays the points a user earned on a grade item and the total points the item was out of.
Displays how much a users’ grade is worth towards the final grade.
E.g., 3/5 (for a user who scored 60% on a grade item worth 50% of a category worth 10% of the final grade).
Note This option is only available in the weighted system.
Grade scheme symbol
Displays the grade scheme symbol for the scheme level a user earned on a grade item. This can be a numeric or text value.
E.g., “Very Good”
Grade scheme color
Displays the grade scheme color for the grade scheme level a user achieved on a grade item.
Number of characters to display for Text items
Sets the maximum characters to display in the grade book for a Text item before truncating it. Try to find a balance between using a lot of space in the grade book and having enough text to understand the item. The value must be an integer between 0 and 50.
Number of columns before user details repeat
Sets how many columns are displayed before user information is repeated. This option makes it easier to work with long grade books. The value must be an integer between 0 and 99.
