  1. Allow me to temporarily create/add assignments in the "What if calculator."

    Not all teachers post assignments on Gradebook before they are submitted. It would be nice if I could add in the final to get a better idea of my position in the class.

    • More Grading Statistics (Standard Deviation, median, Q1, and Q3)

      The new statistics section looks good! Thank you for adding that. In addition to the statistics currently given, I recommend adding a few more.

      Specifically, the standard deviation and the median score would be extremely useful.

      Additionally, the first and third quartile would be good to know.

          • Cumulative Grade for Subcategories

            Having a total grade at the top of each subcategory (based on graded assignments only) on the "Grades" tab would be awesome!

            In classes with lots of assignments per category, this would help students get a feel for where they may need to focus in order to pull grades up.

            **see attached .png; the red text represents the suggested change.

            • For Grading: Add a button next to "Score" that fills in a 100%

              I'm a TA grader. Oftentimes, students will get a 100%, or close to that, so having to type in a number for every student takes longer than it could. For example, if the Assignment is out of 50 points, then next to where it says ___ / 50, just add a button that would fill in 50 in the box.

              I've attached an image of a rough mockup

                • Unify view of assignment statistics between student and instructor view

                  When looking at statistics for a graded item the views differ between the student and instructor view. The student view is much better and I believe when statistics are viewed the student view should appear.

                  • stats

                    Currently, there is a way to view stats for individual assignments, quizzes, exams, etc. There should be a way to view stats for all sections of the class. For instance, how am I doing on the in-class quizzes compared to the class? What about for the written homework? Right now I can only find stats for individual assignments or my overall grade in the class.
