Set up the Preference: Grader Report in the Gradebook

The Preference: Grader report determines how the grader report appears on the gradebook home page to you. The preferences only affect your view of the gradebook and will not change how the grader report appears to students or other course editors. Also, note that preferences apply to all of your course gradebooks across the CLE.

The Preference: Grader report can be accessed through Grades>Setup>Preferences: Grader report
