Grades should transfer with students during schedule changes

When a student is moved from one section of a course to another section of the same course using the change sections option, grades should transfer with the student. It would be great if attendance also transferred.

    My understanding is this was going to be in by now. Do we have any updates? Our teachers have to manually calculate final grades at the end of the year for any student that changes sections during mid year.

    Please implement this change as soon as possible!

    This would be very helpful for us, and I also agree that it should include all assignments, including ungraded, annotations, etc. If the issue is that the grade categories are not the same, they can leave any non-matching ones blank. The teacher can edit those themselves (this will be so much easier than importing every single grade on their own!)

    We are super happy to see this is planned! Agree with the below comments that it should apply to the gradebook assignments, grades, attendance and online submissions... both graded and ungraded.

    Not only grades, but any online submissions and assessments should also move with the student so they can see any annotations and comments provided by the teacher before switching sections. Students lose access to their own coursework when they transfer to a new section and this is just wrong.

    oh my gosh, yes please! This would save so much work! Gradebook grades, comments, assignments and attendance!

    Agreed - Gradebook grades, assignments and attendance are what's helpful here.

    I would vote for this, but it should apply to the gradebook assignments and
    attendance as opposed to the quarter/final grades suggested by the
    commentor. The VAST number of section transfers in our school occur BEFORE
    quarter grades are entered. If this feature deals only with quarter/final
    grades, it will be of no use to us.

    To be clear - just asking from Recorded Grades (not Gradebook assignments but Quarter and Semester and Final Grades.
