Grade Center "Needs Grading" issue resolved

BB9.1 For Faculty

The "Needs Grading" error has been fixed. You can now select Needs Grading and will get the list of things that are waiting to be graded. However, there is an exception to this. Anything that may, for some reason, not have a category set in the grading column will not show up in the "Needs Grading" list.

Please note that any column in the grade center that has the category set to "No Category" will not show up in the "Needs Grading" list and will also give you an error if you go into the Full Grade Center and select "View Attempt".

The only way a column would be set to "No Category" is if you manually created the column and did not select a category or if you manually went into the column and changed it to "No Category".

When the columns are automatically created with Assignments, Tests, etc. the category is automatically set correctly - it is only if you manually change the category to "No Category" that there is a problem.
