Optimize Visibility

If your computer has a small screen size or resolution, there are three approaches you can take to maximize the number of students and assignment columns you can see at a time on the screen: minimize the Gradebook menu and Header rows, enable Thin Column Mode, or adjust the zoom settings on your browser.

Re-size the Gradebook Menu and Header Rows

To re-size the Gradebook Menu and Header Rows at the same time, do the following:

  • To minimize the Gradebook Menu and Header Rows, click the up arrow Up Arrow at the upper-right corner of TeacherPlus.

    Gradebook View Maximized

    When the Gradebook Menu and Header Rows are minimized, the up arrow Up Arrow changes to a down arrow Down Arrow. Clicking the down arrow Down Arrow displays the Gradebook Menu and Header Rows at full size.

Re-size the Gradebook Menu or the Header Rows

To re-size the Gradebook Menu or Header Rows, do either of the following:

  • To re-size just the Gradebook Menu, click Re-size Gradebook Menu.
  • To re-size just the Header Rows, click Re-size Header Rows.

Re-size the Gradebook Columns

To enable thin column mode, do the following:

  • In the Modes group box, click the Thin Column toggle button.

    In Thin Column Mode, score columns can display only scores or score annotations—regardless of the column width. If Annotation Mode is enabled, score columns only display score annotations. If Annotation Mode is disabled, score columns only display score values. To view both at the same time, switch back to Standard Mode.

    In Thin Column Mode, you can click the Thin Column toggle button again to return to the standard column width.

Set the Gradebook Column Width

You can customize the width for both the Standard Column Mode and the Thin Column Mode to better suit your screen. These settings apply to all of your gradebooks.

In Thin Column Mode, score columns can display only scores or score annotations—regardless of the column width. If Annotation Mode is enabled, score columns only display score annotations. If Annotation Mode is disabled, score columns only display score values. To view both at the same time, switch back to Standard Mode.

To change the gradebook column width settings, do the following:

  1. On the side-navigation menu, click Settings, and then click the General Settings tab.
  2. In the Column Options group box, under Column Width, do either of the following:

    • In the Standard Mode box, enter the new width in pixels.

      This number should be larger than the number in the Thin Column Mode box.

    • In the Thin Column Mode box, enter the new width in pixels.

      This number should be smaller than the number in the Standard Mode box.

  3. Column Width Options

    Both Standard Mode and Thin Column Mode accept all pixel values between 20px and 200px, regardless of what the other mode is set to. To avoid confusion, make sure the Thin Column Mode value is less than the Standard Mode value. A warning only appears if you enter a value outside the 20px to 200px range. Decimal values are truncated.

  4. At the top of the General Settings tab, click Save.

Zoom In or Out Using Internet Explorer 11

Adjusting your browser's zoom settings is another way to optimize how much of TeacherPlus you can see.

  1. Click Internet Explorer Settings on the browser toolbar, located at the upper-right corner.

  2. From the shortcut menu, click Zoom to display more options.
  3. Click Zoom in or Zoom out, depending on your preference.

    Zoom Internet Explorer

Zoom In or Out Using Google Chrome

  1. Click Google Chrome Settings on the browser toolbar, located at the upper-right corner.

  2. Click Zoom In to zoom in, or click Zoom Out to zoom out.

    Zoom Google Chrome

Load Your Zoom Changes

  • Click Reload at the upper-right corner of TeacherPlus to refresh your gradebook.

    The grid area adjusts to fit the re-sized grid content.
