In late 2017, Canvas made its initial release of a New Gradebook (Release Notes). Since that time, Canvas has released a series of updates to ensure the stability of this tool and add new features based on feedback and testing.
As of late 2018/early 2019, Canvas has achieved feature parity between the current and New Gradebook. The New Gradebook introduces new features including enhanced filter and sorting options, visual refinements, and improved loading time in large courses.
UC Berkeley plans to release the New Gradebook to bCourses the week of May 20th, 2019, pending final confirmation of functionality and feature parity. The New Gradebook will replace the existing Gradebook.
