There is no table summary for the Gradebook Items Summary table on the Gradebook Items page

A table summary should be added to the table.

<table class="listHier lines nolines" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" summary="The table lists all the assignments and other gradebook items that can receive a grade. The table has eight columns and the table header can be activated to sort the columns.  The first column contains the title of the gradebook item, column two contains a link to edit the grade book item in column one, column three contains the class average for that gradebook item in the format average out of (/) total points possible, column four contains the due date for the gradebook item, column five indicates whether the gradebook item has been released to students, column six indicates if the gradebook item is included in the course grade, column seven provides options for sorting the gradebook items and column eight indicates what tool must be used to edit the gradebook item.">

Minor

 

 

There is not a good indication to users of adaptive technology what the "-" in the class average column in the Gradebook Items Summary table on the Gradebook items page.

A description of what the "-" means should be added to the legend below the table.

Minor

 

 

The hidden text in the "Class Avg." table header runs together with the other table header text in the Gradebook Items Summary table on the Gradebook Items page. This combined table heading does not make sense when read aloud by adaptive technology

There should either be a space between the two text elements or the heading text should be modified so it makes sense.

<a id="gbForm:_idJsp58:_idJsp91" class="notCurrentSort" onclick="return oamSubmitForm('gbForm','gbForm:_idJsp58:_idJsp91');" href="#">
Class Avg<span class="skip"> Class Average (dash means no grades yet)</span>**</a>

or

<a id="gbForm:_idJsp58:_idJsp91" class="notCurrentSort" onclick="return oamSubmitForm('gbForm','gbForm:_idJsp58:_idJsp91');" href="#">Class Average**</a>

Minor

 

 

The "edit" column hidden table header in the Gradebook Items Summary table on the Gradebook Items page is not descriptive .

The hidden table header should be changed from "Edit" to "Edit Gradebook Item"

Minor

 

 

The "Student Name/ Find" input form control on the All Grades page is unlabeled. The "View - All Section/Groups", "and - all categories" and "show 50" combo boxes are also unlabeled.

All form controls should have an explicit label.

<input id="gbForm:searchString" type="text" onfocus="clearIfDefaultString(this, 'Student Name')" onkeypress="return submitOnEnter(event, 'gbForm:searchSubmitButton');" value="Student Name" name="gbForm:searchString" title="Find Student by Name">

Non issue with updated AT software
