We have recently started exploring Bb9.1 SP11. The course My Grades has been changed from a tabular to a linear view (and looks like the Social My Grades feed). Instructors are unable to set the order of grade columns as they automatically display to students in the order that they were graded with the latest first, and the column feed is automatically split into graded and upcoming. More crucially, we feel that it makes it difficult for students to identify whether feedback accompanies the grade; this is especially so if feedback to an assignment has been uploaded as an attached file. Students knowing that feedback is available through My Grades is vital as many of our staff are now providing feedback online to their students through the Grade Centre.
We are interested in what other users feel about this change.
