This column provides the names of each of the students in the class. To reorder the list alphabetically by last name or first name, click the corresponding option. Click the arrow symbol to toggle the list as ascending or descending. The user may also organize the list by email address by clicking Email address. The arrow that appears next to that, will also reorder the list as ascending or descending.

The user may also use the This icon appears between the name and email address of each student listed. icon next to each student name to view an individual student's grades.

Items and Categories

A graded item provides a place to enter grades.  By switching into the editing mode each grade can be manually changed. Arrows at the top of each graded item column are used to sort the students according to ascending or descending grade for the corresponding item. Categories can be manipulated in the same ways, but may also be collapsed to hide the items they contain by clicking the minimize icon next to the category's name.

The Course Total show the calculated results of all of the graded items in the course. The manner of this calculation is determined by the Aggregation method set for the overall course category and any sub categories that are added.
