How do I sort an individual assignment column in the New Gradebook?

Each individual assignment column includes options to sort by grade and assignment status. By default, the New Gradebook is sorted by student last name in ascending order.

When sorting by status, each grade only displays one status. Sorting may affect any assignments that have been dropped according to a drop rule in the assignments page. The dominant status is always shown, so if an assignment is missing or late but is also a dropped grade, the dropped grade status will be shown. However, you can view the Grade Detail Tray to view additional details about the grade.

Note: Sorting is not available for anonymous assignments.
