Working with Grade Center Smart Views

Why?

There are often times when you may wish to view just a certain subset of students (e.g. a particular section of the class) or a certain subset of Grade Center columns (e.g. all homeworks) when working in the Grade Center. The Smart View feature allows you to do so by setting criteria allowing you to establish different views of your content offering you greater flexibility in the way you view the Grade Center.

Creating a Smart View

  1. Go to Control Panel > Assessment > Grade Center. The Grade Center Full Grade Center View page appears.
  1. Click Manage in the Action Bar of the Grade Center.
  1. Select Smart Views from the Action Link menu.
  1. Click on the Add Smart View button. The Add Smart View page appears with three sections.

Section 1: Smart View Information

  1. Enter a name for the Smart View in the Name field.
  2. Enter a description for the Smart View in the Description field.

Section 2: Selection Criteria

  1. Select the Type of View you would like to establish and then define the Smart View criteria.

Note

If you want to restrict content to a group, you first need to create your group if you have not done so already. If you not planning to use the other group features, leave the checkboxes for the Group Options blank when creating your group. The restricted content only appears to the Instructors and TA's from the student view if they are added to the group. Otherwise it can be viewed from the Control Panel.

Section 3: Submit

  1. Click Submit to create your new Smart View..
