Instructors can expand or collapse the grading sidebar giving them more screen real estate as needed. Information about the gradable item is presented at the top of the sidebar while the grading options available on the sidebar depend on the gradable item. For example, if a rubric has been associated with the gradable item, instructors can access and use the rubric directly in the grading sidebar.

For technical information and installation instructions, see the Inline Grading Release Notes.
