The header of the graph reports the selected assignment, as well as its Task/Standard and Category.
The graph show's each student's score received on the assignment, with the percentage of points earned shown next to the student's name.
Below the graph, the Mean and Median scores are calculated, as well as the +/- standard deviation. These values are also represented by blue lines in the graph itself.
The Categories tool has been updated to allow users to create and manage categories included in any sections the user teaches, not just sections in the same course. Categories must now have unique names. The standards and grading tasks available for selection are dependent on the sections selected to include the category.
Because Category names must now be unique, duplicate names have been converted. This update also includes changes to the Category Copier, which can now be used to copy categories to multiple destination sections across courses.
Grade Book - Section Dropdown List
The Section dropdown list in the Grade Book has been updated to display sections correctly by period sequence.

Tools that use FDFs have been updated to no longer open forms using the browser's Adobe Reader plugin. Forms are also no longer downloaded on the user's local machine when opened. This update is meant to address various browser-specific adobe issues.A Save button has also been added to the action bar when viewing an FDF, which means that users creating simple forms for use in their district no longer need to have a save button within the form.
