  • HuskyCT Tip - Preventing Grade Center Problems

    Instructors frequently ask why students are seeing grades from columns that aren’t visible to the instructor in the Grade Center.  The answer is that the column has been hidden from the instructor in the Grade Center but not hidden from the students in My Grades. By using Student View and accessing the “My Grades” tool, instructors will be able to see the discrepancy and identify the columns that still need to be “hidden from users”.  To fix the problem, instructors will need to first unhide the column in the Grade Center and then hide it from the students.

    If the default Total column is still showing to students they are probably also seeing a score in that column. This “external grade” Total column has a green checkmark next to the title and appears in all HuskyCT sites. By default, it is set to add all columns in the Grade Center. External grade columns cannot be deleted, so we highly recommend disabling this column if not being used. Please consult this help file or the video tutorial for instructions.
