When a Teacher is viewing the Gradebook of a Course from the current Term, extra Period/s from a previous Term are seen in the Gradebook with all the Students in these Period/s crossed out.
This issue can occur when the start date of the Gradebook is set to be the same as the start date of the current Term or before the start date of the current Term. Below are the steps to resolve this:
- The start date for the Gradebook should be edited such that it is a day or later than the start date of the current Term, but is still in the current Term dates range. It should not be a date in the future than the current date. Eg: If the current Term starts from 5th January 2021, ends on 14th March 2021, and the current date is 26th January 2021, then, the start date can be from 6th January 2021 to 25th January 2021 (both dates included).
- In case there are Assignments already created for the current Term for this Gradebook, then the Assignments before this newly set start date will not appear in the Gradebook. This will prevent these Periods from appearing on the Gradebook as well as the Assignment creation page (thus avoiding any confusion for the Teacher). If needed, then at the end of the Term, the Gradebook can be restored to the original start date, so that these Assignments (that were already created) can be seen.
