The grading key is a simple way to gauge your students submissions and grading status for assignments. Assignments can have the following statuses / colors (on the Gradebook and Progress Tracking pages):

  • Finalized: Teal, this means that the student’s grade for the assignment has been graded and finalized

  • Submitted After Review: Dark Magenta, this means that the student resubmitted the assignment after it was reviewed by the teacher.

  • Reviewed: Pink, this means that the student's assignment has been submitted, reviewed by the teacher, but isn't fully correct, thus being passed back to the student with a mark that means “Needs Work.”

  • Submitted: Green, this means that the assignment was successfully submitted and passed the Test Cases, and is set to Teacher Graded. To adjust this settings, checkout your Grading Settings.

  • Not Submitted: Yellow, students have started this assignment but have not submitted it. If this is set to Auto grading, it will not receive partial credit.

  • Unopened: Grey, this means that students have not opened this assignment.
