Q Can I set a default visibility type for each category in my gradebook?
Yes! For example, if you want every homework assignment to automatically post as Public, you can do so by clicking the Categories side tab, choosing a category, and changing the visibility type.
If the Visibility type is changed to public, every homework assignment that entered (along with the grade) will automatically be visible to students and families as soon as it is entered. You could choose to do the same thing by choosing Private so that everything in that category is automatically private until you make it public.
A few things you should know:
- You, the classroom teacher, will be responsible for making your assignments Public.
- There will not be a mass update from the Database Team.
the grades have been made Public, please do not make them Private
again. Those grades should remain open for the rest of the year.
