Hello everyone - I just had a faculty member state that when importing from a previous course into one for fall 2020, the gradebook did not come over. I have not heard or seen that this was a change with 3.8 upgrade and this has not been an issue in the past. While I have not started my investigation into the specifics of the faculty members import issue, I thought I would start by posting here to see if I have missed something or if anyone has special insights. Thanks - Ed

Where am I?

Just to clarify, are you using course import, rather than backup and restore? If so, then this does not result in a full copy of the grade-book.   I might be mis-understanding the question.

Importing will only create a grade book columns for any item(s) that are gradable - assignments, quizzes etc.  The specific columns that get created by the import process will depend on what activities were ticked, when the import was performed.

It will not bring across any custom grade book columns or gradebook setup.

AFAIK, Moode has always behaved in this way, which makes me suspect that I am missing something in your question.
