REVISED (04/12): Updated ordering in the Teacher Editor > Weights tab

Currently, teachers can reorder individual activities listed in the Teacher Editor > Weights tab by using up and down arrows or dragging them to the desired location.

To simplify the user experience, these arrows will be removed on Thursday, April 13, 2017. Moving forward:

  1. Teachers can still filter the activities by category.
  2. Teachers can still recategorize activities by dragging them to the desired category.
  3. Activities on this screen will, by default, reflect the order set up in the Editor > Syllabus tab within the category selected. Changes made to ordering on this screen do not impact the ordering in the Editor > Syllabus tab.  

How this impacts other tools

This change impacts ordering in the following tools:

  • Teacher Performance > Gradebook > Category view: The activities listed in this screen now reflect their order in the Editor > Syllabus within their assigned categories.
  • Student Performance > Grades > Periods and Categories view: The activities in this screen now reflect their order in the teacher's Editor > Syllabus within their assigned categories or periods.

    So then we can no longer drag items in the Weights tab to change the order, right? The order must be changed in the Syllabus tab then?

    Excellent question. 

    You're correct; you can drag activities between categories, but ordering changes made here do not impact the Syllabus order.

    We've revised the article to clarify the new functionality. 

    Thanks!
