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.

Minimize the Gradebook Menu and Header Rows

  • To minimize the Gradebook menu and Header rows, click the up arrow icon at the upper-right corner of TeacherPlus.

    Minimize the Gradebook Menu and Header Rows

    When the Gradebook menu is hidden, the up arrow icon changes to a down arrow. Clicking the down arrow displays the Gradebook menu again.

Example 1

The following figure illustrates the areas that encompass the Gradebook menu and Header rows.

Example 2

Enable Thin Column Mode

This feature is ideal if you want to see the scores of several assignment columns at once.

  • Click the Thin Column Mode arrows at the upper-right corner of TeacherPlus.

    Thin Column Mode Button

    Clicking the Thin Column Mode button again changes the assignment columns back to their standard width.

Example

The following figure illustrates TeacherPlus with Thin Column Mode enabled. Notice that the assignment columns become very thin, making it possible to view more assignments at a time.
