What Is the New Gradebook?
As of January 6, 2020, the New Gradebook was enabled across all Canvas courses on the University of Pennsylvania Canvas instance. The New Gradebook has been designed to make grading more flexible and intuitive, as well as to elevate the Gradebook user experience.

The New Gradebook has the following features:
- There are new menus for more settings and sorting options.

- There are more filtering options, including by assignment group, module, section, and group.
- The keyboard accessibility on grade entry is improved.
- It has drag-and-drop total columns.
- There are crosshairs and highlighting for orientation.
- Teachers have control over status color with a built-in color key.
