  2. Select For Me.
  3. Choose a student.
  4. Click on the activity you want to grade to open the Grade Editor.

I love the student choice folders, but I"m really hoping that the grading features get an upgrade soon.  With nearly 100 students, I love keeping track of who has turned items in from the gradebook view, clicking into each student to hunt for these activities it really frustrating though.  While I grade them from the To-Do list, it doesn't give me a good picture of who/how many students have completed these activities.  I'm trying to think of these problems from a database point of view (limited knowledge), but could there be a way to create a column in the gradebook that displays which activity student chose and their grades?  I'm sure this isn't an easy tech. fix, but I'm excited to see improvements with the choice folders and how they display in our gradebooks.

Megan, thank you for your post.  I was wondering the same thing and came across your post.  We too love the choice feature but are struggling with teachers who have 200+ students on how to manage who has completed what without having to complete on each individual student.  Is there away to view all of the submissions/grades for activities in a specific choice folder similar to the grade book view with all activities for that choice folder listed across the top row and all students across the side?  I understand that if there were 5 activities in the folder and they only had to 2 that they would have 3 assignments that were blank but I would still be able to determine more quickly who had completed the choice folder than I currently can by going through the "For me" for each individual student.  Is there a better way to go about this?

Agreed!  Our students and teachers are finding this very confusing!  They love the idea of choice, but how these work in the gradebook for students and teachers is confusing and in some cases it is preventing teachers from using this great feature!

We really wish the choice assignments showed on the student Grades tab of the Performance page before it has been submitted/graded.  It is almost as if it does not exist until it is submitted/graded.  Kids to not remember to click on the For Me tab of their Performance page.

Agree with the comments made by others. It would be much easier for teachers if the choice items appeared in the gradebook just as any other assignment. The items should appear in the gradebook under the choice folder name so that it's easy to see if the student hasn't made selected any choice. Perhaps the scoring field could be greyed out if the item was not selected. I think the overall feedback is that the "for me" tab might make sense on the coding side, but it feels so separate from the gradebook that it is almost forgotten.
