Customize Your Workspace: Show Inactive Students in Your Gradebook

When students are withdrawn from your class, they are hidden from your class gradebook. You can change this setting at any time and in any gradebook. You can also change the font color of inactive students.

Show Inactive Students

To turn on Show Inactives in your gradebook, on the Gradebook Toolbar, in the View group box, click the Show Inactives (x) toggle switch.

The Show Inactives toggle switch turns green.

The inactive student(s) appear in either red or gray, which you can set based on your preference.

For each gradebook, you can find the number of inactive students in parentheses next to Show Inactives. This setting only applies to the current gradebook. If you want to show inactive students in another gradebook, you can select that gradebook from the Gradebooks menu and turn on Show Inactives there. For more information on selecting a gradebook see Select a Gradebook and a Marking Period.

Set the Font Color for Inactive Students

You can customize how inactive students appear in your gradebook. Inactive students' data can stand out in red font, or be set to a less notable gray. This setting allows you to choose the display method that works best for you, and it can be changed at any time.

To set the font color for inactive students, do the following:

  1. On the side navigation menu, click Settings, and then click the General Settings tab.
  2. In the Other group box, under Font color for withdrawn students, select either Red or Gray, and then click Save.
