How do I use the icons and colors in the Grades page?
There are different icons on the Grades page. Depending on the type of assignment submission, grading rules, and comments, you will see different icons. If the icons and colors displayed in this lesson are different from the ones displayed in your course, your teacher may be using the New Gradebook, which displays different icons and colors.
