Ah, the power of suggestion. There have been many entries submitted into the eSchool Suggestion Box asking that the E, M, and P alpha marks be shaded or stand out. Well, you asked for it and you got it. Thanks to the magic of Steve Greb, all alpha marks are now shaded blue (cornflower, to be exact) in all grade books. Please note that, currently, the shading only gets added upon the initial opening of the grade book. This means that when you change a score to E, M, or P, the shading will not happen right away. If you exit your grade book and re-open it, the shading will then appear. We'll continue to work on this aspect of the enhancement and see if we can't get the shading to be more dynamic. I hope this helps and you find this enhancement beneficial.
