Navigating Multiple Pages For most CE-6 ‘pages’ the default for the number of entries that show per page is 10. –The effect is that you must click the ‘next page’ navigation arrow to see additional entries. –Advantage – reduces load time for pages if you are on a dial-up modem If you can’t find something that should be there, click on the ‘next page’ icon!
Navigating Multiple Pages You can change the default entries per page option. Pick a number – 100 is good for most things. (Although for ‘viewing all’ assignments you might still need to scroll through pages if you have a both a large number of assignments and/or a large number of students.)

Settings Changed! Note: Since the new setting accommodates all current entries, the only tool showing at the bottom of the page now is the settings icon (i.e., no ‘page’ navigation icons because there are no other pages to view).
“People Links” The dropdown arrow to the right of the student’s submission is a ‘people’ link. Click on it and you can email the student or check the student’s performance report … without ever having to leave the assignments page.
