Setting up a new quarter- "grading period"

Stephanie Jackson
Our new quarter has started for school. We are now in the 2nd quarter, I would like to know how to view my gradebook so I can only view gradable assignments for each quarter. Same for my students as well. Since we are starting a fresh quarter, I would like to remove any old assignments from my students "To-do" lists. I've already set up the grading periods, but that seems to just extend the gradebook or split it into quarters. I want to start fresh with the new quarter beginning.

In the gradebook you can filter by grading period (in the upper left corner) so you are only looking at one grading period at a time, but I wish it would have a way to cut off students from turning in old work after the end of the quarter or removing it from the to-do list at the end of the quarter, or that in the student home page it would show the current quarter grade as the default instead of an averaged grade of the grading periods and making the student click through to their grade in that course and scroll all the way down to find it.

You could use the bulk editor to stop students from completing "old" activities. For example, on the first day of the new grading period go to the editor and click on the activity list tab. Select all of the previous activities. Go to the bulk editor and set a due date for that day and don't allow late submissions. That should effectively lock student out of those assignments.
