      Description

      A number of our instructors assign student projects, using Lessons Student Pages/Student Content.

      • If instructors Edit Student Content Section, and select "Create Gradebook items for these", as long as all of the students in the site access their Student Page, grading works fine.
      • But if a student never clicks on their Student Page in Lessons, the instructor can't access the non-participating student pages; therefore, there is no way to enter a zero grade for these students. (You can't edit the Gradebook item in the Gradebook, the grade must be added in Lessons).
      • This gives the appearance of a much higher grade to the student.

      Instead, we have to tell instructors to hide/make unavailable the Lessons Student Page Gradebook item in the Gradebook, add a new Gradebook item, and enter all Student Pages grades, including zero grades, in the new Gradebook item.

      • This is frustrating to our instructors
      • Note: Instructors can use the Gradebook feature "Set Ungraded Items to Zero" at the end of the semester, but then students have a false view of their final grade until the end of the semester, which causes issues.

      As a consequence, we've recommended that instructors not use the Lessons Student Pages grading features. The same problem exists for grading Student Pages comments, but not many of our instructors grade the Student Pages comments.
