While some concern in the community exists for having invisible grades contribute towards a student's score, student issues could be alleviated with a warning. Note that many people who use this function in GB2 are not displaying the running course grade to students during the semester.

(1)  Students won’t see in GB1 items created from Assignments or Assessments for an specific group if they are not members of the specific groups. Please see the point 4 from GAP analysis between Gradebook2 and Gradebook.

(2)  GB1 is not able to import the "Gradebook Item Point Value" from the Loading Dock. Please see the image below:  



(3) InstitutionalAdvisor is a java bean interface that allows submitting the final grades from Gradebook2 to a final SiS or LMS system. That interface must be implemented by the institution. This option is called "Submit Final Grade" in the "Tools" option from the Gradebook2's toolbar.
