You can view the history of all Gradebook changes in your course using the Gradebook History page. Gradebook History is a read-only log that allows you to see who graded each assignment. Options are available to filter grading history by student, grader, assignment, and date.

For quizzes, you can view historical data for any regraded quizzes.


  • Gradebook history displays changes made within the last 365 days.
  • Gradebook history will reflect any grade changes made to assignments with a manual posting policy, even if grades are not yet visible to students.

View Gradebook History


The Gradebook History page displays recent grade changes in the course. Each grade change lists the date of the change [1], the student whose grade was changed [2], the grader who changed the grade [3], and the assignment where the grade was changed [4].

Additionally, you can view a summary of the grade before it was changed [5], after it was changed [6], and the current grade for the assignment [7].

Note: If you are grading in a course where you can only interact with users in your same section, the Gradebook history page will only display results for users within your same section.

View Anonymous Assignments in Gradebook History


Any grade changes related to an anonymously graded assignment do not include student names in the search results [1].

If the anonymous grading option is removed from the assignment at a later time, the Gradebook History page displays an icon showing that the assignment was previously graded anonymously [2].

Note: Posting grades for an anonymous assignment will remove anonymity from the assignment.
