You can use color codes to apply backgrounds and text color that meet certain criteria that you create or edit (there are default criteria to start) from within the Grade Center.

Adding color rules to Grade Center items provide you visual indicators that help you interpret information quickly.

  • Select Grade Center, Full Grade Center from Control Panel. Select Manage on the action bar then select Grading Color Codes from the drop-down list.

  • Click Submit. The Grade Center page appears with a success message stating that the color coding is updated. Colors based on your rules appear in the affected cells.
