Missing assignments graded as 0 should be labeled "Missing" not "Graded"

Students and parents misinterpret the green graded notation as always positive, however many times the grade is 0 because it is missing. Maybe having multiple notations show on the progress page will solve this issue.

    Hi Folks -

    In the new assignment experience, we've made some updates to how Missing assignments function. The big issue we hit is that Missing is considered an optional indicator, whereas Graded is a status. Because of this nuance and because an assignment can technically be both, Missing and Graded, it created some difficult situations to handle.

    In the new assignment experience from the List view, students will always see Missing assignments in the Missing and Overdue header, even if the assignment is also Graded. Likewise, from the Calendar view, Missing assignments will always show with a red background, even when the status is Graded. We also now surface two different columns on the Assignment page itself, one for Status (Graded) and one for Marked as (Missing).

    We also have plans to display Missing assignments to students and parents from their Progress page when they click into 'See grade details'. That work is currently undergoing discovery, but we should have something ready before the beginning of the next school year. If you're interested in participating in the discovery efforts, feel free to use the link below to schedule a meeting!

    Here are screenshots relevant to the issue of Missing and Graded. A student cannot use online submission for the missing assignment because I have given it zero points.

    In addition, if I have given a Zero, (and flagged it as missing), a student can no longer submit the missing assignment when Online submission is being used.

    Multiple Notations on the progress page would be great!

    Yes, I agree the missing assignments need to be labeled or color coded
