Q. In gradebook, the student names are arranged in alphabetical order by last name, but for students with the same last name, the names are not alphabetical by first name. They seem to be random. Is there a way for me to change this?
A. In your Grade Center, first sort by First Name and then by Last Name:
- Click in the dark gray title cell of the First Name column.
- A yellow up arrow should appear right above First Name, indicating that the Grade Center is sorting by First Name, in ascending order. If you see a yellow down arrow, just click on it to change it to an up arrow.
- Then click in the dark gray title cell of the Last Name column to get the arrow to appear.
- If the arrow is pointing up, the Grade Center is sorting by Last Name, in ascending order; but, because you already sorted by First Name, it is preserving the First Name, in ascending order, within the same Last Name. If the arrow that appears in the Last Name column is pointing down, click on it to change it to an up arrow.
