      Description

      Exporting a Gradebook spreadsheet with no gradebook columns, since Sakai 12, have included 3 example columns denoting the format necessary for columns which would then be IMPORTED back into the gradebook. The columns represent a set points column, a column with no points designated, a comment column, and a "note to self" column which does not import at all. They are:

      Example Assignment With Points [100]

      Example Assignment With No Points

      • Example Assignment With Points And Comments [50]
      1. This column will be ignored

      Expected Behavior: Instructors will understand what these column headers represent.

      Actual Behavior: The column header * Example Assignment With Points And Comments [50] as content in a single column is confusing. A valid interpretation or conclusion is that both the point value and comment are to be included in the same column.

      We need a less ambiguous Example for the Export. Perhaps 2 columns:

      Points With Comment Column [100]

      • Points With Comment Column
