Click the Gradebook settings tile. The "Gradebook Settings" will open in a new popup window. The following settings are available:

Student-Performance Color-Coding

In the Delphinium Gradebook grade list, student progress in a course is indicated by green, yellow, and red "status indicators". The "Student-Performance Color-Coding" value indicates the threshold the Delphinium Gradebook will use to control which color is assigned to students. The default value is 30%.

  • Students above average will be green

  • Students between average and the student-performance color-coding percent value below average (e.g., between average and 30% below average) will be yellow

  • Students below the student-performance color-coding percent value below average (e.g., more that 30% below average) will be red

Currently Hidden Columns

In the Delphinium Gradebook grade list, the Delphinium Configuration AI will hide and show columns depending on which components are used in the course and what data is available. If a column is currently being hidden in the grade list, it will be listed here.


Show/Hide Links to Assignments in Student View

In the student view of the Delphinium gradebook, there is a list of assignments. This setting governs whether the names for those assignments will also be links to those assignments in canvas. If teachers are trying to enforce that students access assignments through a different part of the delphinium layout, they may uncheck this box and the assignment names in the student version of the gradebook will be text only, without links to the assignments.

Note: In addition to the Gradebook settings described above, you will also need to configure start date, end date, and total points in the Course Settings. These values are used by some of the displays in the gradebook like the timeline graph.
