Learn@UW - Configuration Variables Controlling Gradebook Display

This document is for Site Administrators only.

In the Config Variable Browser tool, the variables controlling the display of the gradebook are under

All Variables --> Tools --> Grades --> GradesList .

All of these variables are one of three types. These types are displayed in parentheses following the names of the variables when a variable is selected.

  1. UserOrgUnit: These variables specify defaults for each user for each gradebook. As above, this only applies to new users and new gradebooks, not existing ones.

  2. OrgUnit: These variables are specific to the particular gradebook in question. Most of these variables can be overridden under the "Course Display Options" section of "Grades Settings" in the Grades tool.

  3. Org: These variables specify defaults for the entire organization.
