      Requesting an "Item Overview" page added to Gradebook that would let instructors review the current gradebook setup. Instructors have requested a view, similar to GB Classic, where they can see all items in a list and make sure that point value, categories and other settings are correct. 

      I'd like these to show (as appropriate) the item name, category, points, percentage of the course grade, and the icons for created by Assignments, created by Tests & Quizzes, Rubric attached, not released to students, not included in course grade calculation, and extra credit.

      The initial order should match the sort order on the main Grades page. Instructors should be able to sort by name, category, points, or percentage. Clicking on an item name should bring up the Edit Item Details to allow the instructor to correct settings as needed.

      Very rough mockups for no category, categories only, and categories & weighting are attached. 


      Justification: I am looking for a way to let instructors see the current gradebook setup in a vertical list, similar to the item view in Gradebook Classic. My instructors dislike the horizontal scrolling on the Grades screen when trying to make sure their gradebook it set up correctly. Also, there is currently no way for an instructor to see the total number of points possible in a course without entering grades. I'm looking for a way for an instructor to see if all items are present, what the total number of possible points are for a class to ensure that it matches the syllabus, see if an item may have the wrong number of points, and fix those issues quickly.
